Here is the rest of the assignment
- page 102 (D04) Foret, Stéphanie Bretonneuse
I worked on the piece a lot and somehow got tired of it and have no motivation to really polish it, so there are some mistakes here and there...

Here is my best attempt so far at the Bretonneuse, still a few stutters here and there.
Nicely done! Andrei and Dave
. Your plays are both smooth and emotional.
In my humble opinion, the bass line and the melody line are like dancers. The bass is a male dancer and the melody is the female. They support each other and one can not perform well without the other.
Let's listen to master Delcamp's video, from 0:22 to 0:35
His bass line is independent and loud, separated from the melody, just like a duet guitarists play together. His right thumb technique is excellent to achieve that.
When I listen to your videos, I feel like the bass line is weak and mix with the melody notes. It takes time to practice right thumb independent though.
I'm practicing this song too, and love to hear your criticisms when I finish.
@Dave I feel like you are obsessed with speed. Honestly to play as fast as you, requiring excellent technique. You play fast but rarely make a mistake, and that is hard. I can never play as fast but the same time flawless as you. But because it is fast, I can feel rushed, emptiness, like you have to go somewhere in a hurry
. I learnt a lot from you Dave, from D03 lessons, and watching your videos has helped me a lot. I wish you the best.
