Great early posts classmates!
James and Judy you both did great besides very minor hesitations on on afew notes. Tempo was on point though and the musicality of your playing is constantly improving. Well done!

Chris, you did great as usual as well! Im kinda tempted on the guitar support that you obtained!


Especially of the improv! I find it hard to keep a nice improv, but I shall work on that tonight, and then I will submit all of them together. I have taken a week break as well due to a bad flu. Now Im back im action!

Thanks Bill, Jono, Judy.

I really do like the ergoplay pro a lot.

Big improvement over the foot stool for me.

Tempting indeed! :casque:

My only concern is putting it on and taking it off everytime I practice the guitar due to the necessity of my guitars to be kept inside its case when not in use.

Also, looking forward to your Opus 60. It's a great peice!

It really wouldn't be a big deal to take it off and on. Takes literally seconds. I really like it, everyone should own one.. Footstools completely suck in comparison.

I find myself using my footstool less and less and using the De Oro Guitar Support instead. It is much more comfortable. I also have an ErgoPlay Tröster Guitar Support that I use as well, but personally, I prefer the De Oro.

Below you will find my Lesson 7 submissions along with my new old Takamine :) Pardon my snake like head shakes on Bella Ciao, the song got into me. Also still looking for a perfect store to get my Cordoba fixed =/ hopefully I can afford the cost.








I also enjoyed this video that I stumbled upon when I was looking up Bella Ciao performances.

Jono,
You've ruined me. Your submissions are very good as usual and I like the Takamine but from here on I will be expecting a side-show for at least one tune. WPIB :casque:

BTW, what year is the C132S?

Thanks much my fellow mates!

Lol. I will do my best, James! My 132S is a 1982 one, and it is warming up to me. On the otherhand, Im not sure if its saddle and nut are of bone or of plastic just yet. I like the intonation and action already, but might get a bone set replacement while maintaining the settings.

Post Mardi-Gras Day Greetings my fellow classmates.

Here are my submissions for Lesson-7

Improvisation using 4-notes (D, G, A, B):

I found imposing a restriction on playing improvisation in 1st position to be somewhat difficult. My thoughts on improvisation are that you harness the creative force within you and portray a part of yourself. In the end I decided that the more expressive part of myself is best demonstrated by showing a competent assembly of notes attempting what I need to improve upon most - cadence.

As an aside from that effort I submit this alternate improvisation using 4-notes (D, G, A, B):

Quand J'etais Chez Mon Pere:

O Bella Ciao:

Being 1st this time I am putting myself in the position of receiving all of the best feedback and I welcome it. In addition this is the qualifying round.

That said I think I'll go fishing.
James
Great submissions James, I think your sense of rhythm is improving with each lesson.

Nicely done Jono and good to hear you are feeling better. The Takamine sounded quite good and the bonus video really was a bonus!

Excellent submissions Chris. You seem to be totally in control of dampening, i and m alternation and so on, and your playing sounds great.

I'm sorry that you feel that you're not successful in many aspects of life, but I'm glad that you have found something worthwhile to focus on.
Learning to play an instrument well brings a lot of satisfaction. Enjoy the feeling of being ahead instead of behind :)
