Tom - well done. It is funny, the first time I heard you play this it sounded very fast. When I went back and listened to the instructor play and then re-listened to your version it was spot on. I am finding when I play this, the first 5 notes do not sound "musical" to my ears. I need to do a better job of coming close to the way you play those notes.

And, I think you are right, I am playing it a bit fast. It felt too fast when I was playing (a little outside of my comfort zone at times).

Rough cut of SAUTEUSE. Bunch of stumbles. Could not get this to sound "musical" to me. Even tried in parts to close my eyes while playing just to focus on hearing it. I have tried this with the metronome but turned it off while recording, hence there are places where I get quicker than I want to be.

I made sure to include the 1 beat rests as written and then noticed that Delcamp doesn't damp the notes at the end of each section. In this case I think it sounds better without damping, but the pedant in me isn't ready to do it over just yet. Thumb is feeling better anyway so back into the groove.

Ed: good job on Sauteuse. You continue to improve with each submission. It is good to see that you are not looking at the hands. Your slurs, while better, are still not even. Keep practicing until every note sounds for an equal length of time.

Jules - thank you. I keep working with the metronome with the SLURS, but that hammer on always wants to go faster than the beat. It is in my daily practice routine. Hopefully by the end of the month I will get it better.

Jules - I liked your version of SAUTEUSE. The pace stayed consistent throughout the exercise. It sounded a lot more "musical" than mine. Glad your thumb is feeling better.

Jules, after listening to your playing, I now understand what you meant by my failure to mute in this piece. I don't believe a "rest" means muted strings. This is why they aren't muted in the demo version, they're pauses.

I do understand your playing style (plucking of strings), and I like the way it sounds, giving it a cadence quality. I do not believe the muted strings is a good idea (technically correct) however.

I am really sorry the audio quality. I am actually using my web cam for recording, please suggest otherwise.
Thankyou

Hi Rajesh
Quality is just about ok for listening. I suspect the agc is working hard, you could try guitar closer to laptop.
I’ll enter these onto qualifying list and look out for you 7th set.

All played well and Andantino sounds really nice.

Rajesh, your playing is quite good. I think the comments made by Jules Wilkins in the past apply here.

Have you tried working with a metronome? This is probably a habit (playing faster through the easy parts)? The metronome can help, providing feedback in real time (which can be pretty annoying by the way). If you slowed down a bit and stuck to a more consistent tempo (with some variation, for effect), you'd sound like a real PRO!

I look forward to listening to what you do with Pavane :guitare: .
