:bravo: Hello Luis:
I am a fellow student sort of...I am tackling years D01 and D02 with hopes that I will be good enough come May to pass the exams. From time to time I listen to someone's submissions in a higher grade to give me some idea of where I am hopefully headed in the not too distant future. No practical advice from this aspiring student but you do get my praise and admiration. I very much enjoyed your playing both just to listen to and to encourage me to keep persevering. Very well done indeed.

Hello, Luis!

Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you joined the English forum, there seem to be too few of us left this year. Your playing is well above my level, so it is kind of an aim to strive for. It is amazing how easy those pieces seem when you play them....

Barrios El sueño de la muñequita



As you can see, this time it is a normal guitar. Somehow it turns out that harmonics on a silent guitar sound horrible, to put it mildly
Hi Maria..

Excellent video! The normal guitar sounds so much better than the silent guitar, I hope that you have the opportunity to play it more often. A couple of specific comments:

On measure 21, there should be a slide up from d to e
On measure 23, there should be a slide up from b to d
Good job on the transitions of measures 25-28
Careful to not rush the last measure.

Hi Luis..

Welcome to the D05 lessons, great to have you here. Thanks for posting a great video.

Both pieces were well played. Great tempo and good job on the harmonics.

I just had a general comment about your body positioning, related to your left wrist. It looks like your left wrist is overly bent at times ( more of a steel string positioning ). I think there may be two factors here.

Sometimes, you are leaning away from headstock ( which pulls your left arm back, which then requires your wrist to bend more ). Try leaning towards the headstock slightly.

You might want to consider making the headstock higher. I was never able to play with a foot stool properly. I currently use a guitar brace ( ergo play and sageworks ). I was able to have so much adjustability using the guitar brace over the footstool. Having a higher headstock position will allow your wrist some more space and it will be able to be less bent also.

Thank you very much for the comment Jeffrey, I will pay more attention in that aspect, I will try ergo play.
