Hi Colin,

Please note that #39 is the mordants and trills exercise were are required to do for this month. I see that I haven't gotten credit for it yet. I've changed the name of the file to Mordants and trills in order to avoid the confusion I caused.

Thanks,

Sal

Yes, I know my recording is awful, but I am posting because I want to qualify for the exam. I hate to blow a whole year of progress (otherwise).

I have an easier time with the trills when the notes are lower on the scale. You can hear me laughing at my horrible trills in the upper range. :lol:

One of my problems is that I am a noob at this. The other is that I just got my guitar set up and the action is lower than I am used to. Although this means much easier playing otherwise, the strings tend to hit the frets when I try to do a trill. But I am not very graceful or smooth about it.

Hi Jenni,

You said "One of my problems is that I am a noob at this". Exactly. It takes time to build both strength and a feel for the strings. Also, there is a confidence factor which comes in time. It simply says "I know what to do" and then just does it without hesitation and without thinking because you've done it so often before. For me, that still only comes in flashes. One day I'm in the zone and the next I'm once again fumbling around unable to get it together. Don't do as I did and start to think that these are setbacks. They are all part of discovering yourself, your guitar and a deeper connection with music. All practice is good as long as you don't overdo it and strain a muscle or joint.

Best regards,
Bob G.
