Edna I thought your mordants were good. On the Cataluna, I think you tripped over a couple of notes as you sped up. Just a dot on the metronome slower and I think you will be great.

I love the position of your left elbow - I will use your video during the next month as inspiration to get my elbow the same.

Recorded simple arpeggio

fingers parallel

fingers not parallel

At least to my ear, sound is "warmer" when not parallel - strings seem to remain on nail a little longer. Carrying this tone over to my exercises is my challenge

great experiment. This is precisely the sort of thing you should be doing, trying different attack etc.
As you've discovered, angled attack gives a warmer sound because the string slides over the nail and is pushed down rather than sharper release of the straight across technique. both have their place and add to the range of sounds at your disposal.
You've made amazing progress over these last few years, keep it up.

Colin - your kind words are most appreciated. Hope all is well. If I can help with any administrative stuff to take some burden off of you, please let me know.
