Excellent submission Robert. Like Jono and James said, I think you are showing great progress. Your left hand is looking better now, especially on Quand j'etais chez mon père.
Thank you Staffan, i tried to concentrate on my left hand on Quandj'etais :D :merci:

Thanks for posting that Robert. That is an interesting turn of events, although I suspect it will not apply to year one students.

Here's a trivial observation-

In Lesson-8, page-57, arpeggio exercises:

At what 1st appear to be standard fretted notes in both the Am and Em arpeggio's you'll find the chord shapes for the respective key signatures.

I know that's so trivial especially since the purpose of arpeggio's is to play notes from a chord but it's also obvious and I didn't expect it.

Thanks Bill.

I'm jealous of you guys looking at and working at lesson 8.

I'm not allowing myself to move on until I can play op 60 no 2. It's become a stand off :P

Thanks for the heads up, Robert!

James you are correct about the arpeggios! Also I'll use these for warm ups now.

Chris, I was working on Opus 60 as well. Unfortunately I put it on hold, since it felt more advance to me than the required pieces for Lesson 8.

Frankly, Opus 60 leccion 2 seems more like a year 2 piece. With our luck, it will be the exam piece! :shock:

You know. I'm real glad you are all chiming in because I'm sure not finding it terribly easy.

I refuse to skip it however. I'm enjoying the challenge.

Hello Classmates,

Cherry Blossom season is right around the corner here in Japan. In Japan it is known as Sakura. Yuquijiro Yocoh, born 1925 in Japan, is best known for his composition 'Sakura Theme and Variations' for guitar, which was based on the traditional Japanese folk song Sakura. This is my favorite rendition of Sakura, played by John Williams. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Bill,
I can see why you are enamored by the tune. It is lovely and an especially pleasant composition played by John Williams. His production team should be commended as well because the choreography perfectly fit the nature of Sakura. Any good guess on the type of guitar he's playing? Surely, one built by a Japanese master luthier.

Not to upset the tone set by Sakura, but I'll add the following WRT Opus 60:
Im looking forward for your video
That must be a Sor subject.

Nicely done Staffan!

How many takes on O bella ciao? I'm guessing a few as you let out that breath in the beginning on the piece.

Anyway, congratulations and posting lesson 7, which qualifies you for the exam. It should be announced April 12.
