Mike, I don't think it is good idea to give you the feedback on piece that I didn't practice and know nothing about. Neverthless, I watched your D03 submissions anyway. It sounds good and I believe it is in tempo to my ear. I've enjoyed your submissions. You are doing more than great!
Welcome back, Linda.Linda Kimbrel wrote: ↑Thu Jan 03, 2019 7:48 pmKen, thank you for this last post. I was at a loss to account for A, B, C, D, and E patterns, what use we were to make of them. Now I understand them to be alternate arpeggio patterns, variations to the arpeggio used in the score. Thank you. I am back in the game again, still trailing behind the rest of the class in posting but with good prospects for coming up to speed again this month.
Thank you, Mike.Charles Cook wrote: ↑Fri Jan 04, 2019 1:33 pmKen - Very clean performance! Great tone and steady tempo.
We'll you've inspired me with your postings of the other options, so I worked hard on Option C during the past week. I want to thank you for your videos of the other options. They encouraged me to push a little harder. I had not even considered playing them. Option C is terrific RH and string balance exercise, as well as a piece, to focus on musicality. I'm still not playing it to 100% satisfaction, but it is coming along. I'm also learning a lot from watching my own videos. I see things that I am not aware of while I'm playing. One of my concerns is my RH pinky that wants to curl up. I noticed that when this happens, it tends to hamper my A finger slightly and makes my RH a little tense. I'll need to watch this closely goin forward.
Linda - you are making impressive progress! I look forward to watching you January posts.
Looking forward to Lesson 5. Happy New Year everyone!
Oh, I didn't see this. , Linda.Linda Kimbrel wrote: ↑Thu Mar 14, 2019 3:55 pmHere finally are my posts for Lesson 4. The first Valse is from a month ago without an external mic on my iPhones. The second Valse was recorded last night using a Ride Mikeme -L. I hope the difference in quality justifies what a pain in the patooty this mic has been to acquire!
