Tom - well done. Nice smooth transition from chord to chord.

Ed
Thanks Ed. By the way, are you and I the sole survivors of the D02 club?
' you are not alone...'
I'm still here, even if I'm not here...on time :)
I tried to make my videos, a few times with no success, but I'm still trying.
I liked a lot what you did, Tom, well done.
And bravo Ed, not bad for an early start.
Meanwhile I'm trying...

Hi Lucian. Glad to hear you are still out there working on this stuff.

Lucian - hang in there, take it slow and remember first recordings are a starting point not an end result.

Lucian - well done. I especially liked the lightness of your fingers of the left hand.

Well, almost caught up now. I had some fun with these and will likely keep practicing them at least until I can smooth out the execution.

Jules - well done. A couple of questions. On the VALSE Your left thumb seems to come to over the top of the neck - do you do that on purpose? I did not notice that you did that on the Arpeggio. Also on the VALSE, your left hand/palm is less "parallel" to the neck than it was on the Arpeggio. O purpose? I have been struggling with the parallel position since moving to a guitar brace, something I need to continue to go back and correct myself.
