Hi Colin, these 2 assignments are quite solid and consistent.
Prelude comments: probably a wrong chord at 0:59. Also, I noticed an interesting thing that before starting each measure you land all fingers on strings, so as soon as a bass note starts ringing the trebles from the previous measure are muted. Is it done on purpose or it makes playing easier for you? Sounds like a combination of 114 and 114a
In the last measure there is some hesitation (same applies to me! )
Ghiribizzo comments: you played it in a more challenging way, with apoyando
All damps are there, tone is good. Just a minor mistake at the end. Also, the guitar is a bit out of tune.
As of hesitations I noticed it is getting much worse towards the end, especially when pieces are long (like >2 minutes). I think the best way to deal with that is to learn last measures pretty well and even start learning pieces from the end
Actually, even David Russell does that! Check out his interview on Youtube: "David Russell: Guitar Talks with Benjamin Verder"
Summary: great job!!
