Not too much to say here as you are clearly whipping through these lessons. On your left hand your fingers are mostly fretting with their tips, but your pinky is definitely fretting with the pad. It is very important to fret with finger tips only just behind the frets with as little pressure as is necessary to get a clear note. This is a very common mistake for us beginners to make and a hard one to correct...believe me I am still struggling. I find chromatic scale exercises helpful played slowly but perfectly.
Thank you much again for your feedback, Jules. Pinky was trying to dampen and simply used pad for easy way. That's not how it supposed to look like. I looked at maestro Delcamp lessons again and he is fretting with pinky tips almost right under nail, while bottom of tip dampening. Still cureved pinky and mine is flat, oh Lord! His pinky is Not laying down at all. How'd I miss that? It seems like I have a wrong idea about dampening. I'll have to study carefully again about curved angle 'C' shape pinky. It is more than great advice and crucial for being a permanent bad habit. Thank you so much for monitoring and greatly appreciated.
