Andrei,

It looks like you have little problem with barres. Your last few measures of the Sor's piece was played very cleanly. Other than a few weak notes here and there, very nicely done.

Do you hear anything about the plan for this month lesson? Maybe we just start on the assignments for last year?
Thank you, Chu. Measure 42 (C IV barre) in most cases gives a buzzing sound on the first string, other strings are just fine. Need to experiment more with the wrist angle and finger position. I think the index finger tends to point to the soundboard and is not straight. So, I need to turn the elbow closer to the body. But then it is hard to place other fingers :)

Hi, here is my 2/3 of the assignment
As Chu says, you dont seem to be having any great difficulty. The rest of us struggle on trying not to get too far behind - another 3 pieces this month!
Good luck on finishing this assignment, Colin!

Very well played. Just a few buzzes etc, but nothing major.
See you in next lesson - soon I hope

Here is my version of the John Dowland piece - still needs more work, but I have much catching up to do.

Well done Colin, a few hesitations here and there but these are not easy pieces. After 173 takes for the Sor and still not happy with it I should know.

It seems the more I play the Sor, the more sore my left hand gets and the worse it sounds. I could only play it without hesitation by memorising the whole piece.

Anyway, splendid effort - you are way ahead of me and your sight reading does you credit!

Very nicely played, real dance feeling. I love music from this period.

My sight reading works if I slow down so as to do one take - with a couple of false starts. You are well ahead of me on memorisation and performance, something I need to work on for the exam otherwise I'm not going to be able to polish the piece.

I'm still struggling to get a clean recording of the Sor b minor study, so this is my best effort so far. Would like to re record at some stage as I really like this piece.
