Hi everyone, here are my submission videos
I appreciate your feed back and comments. Thanks.
Thank you for posting Binh, well done - it takes some courage to post for the first time.
There is quite a lot to talk about here.
Posture - The classical guitar is normally supported on the left leg and held at an angle of at least 45 degrees. You appear to be holding it roughly horizontal and on the right leg.
Allegro There is lots of damping in the base for this piece which of course makes the piece much harder to play. These are indicated by an astrix (*).
The first damping is at the start of bar 2 and this means that the open A string must be damped with the thumb at the beginning of this bar. There is a similar example in bar 6 where again the open A string must be damped. In the last 3 bars ie bars 9,10,11 there is an asterix (*) against each of the base notes. This means that for each base note played the previous base note must be damped with the thumb.
In addition, JF has stated that in the Allegro the melody is in the base and many students have taken this to mean that the piece should be played with thumb rest stroke throughout, though as this has not been explicitly stated it could be a matter for personal preference.
The first 7 bars of this piece are rushed. Each of these chords consist of minims and should last a full 2 beats. Again you have missed the base damping throughout this piece. I like the rallantando at the end though.
I would suggest that you listen to JF's version of both these pieces and compare it with your recording.
Good luck and keep practicing. I look forward to hearing you play again.
