I worked on Danse Polonaise this weekend. It's not quite ready for prime time, but I have a decent start. It is a nice practice piece. I've been playing guitar so much, my LH fingertips are numb! Looking forward to lesson 6.

Great playing, Mike.

This piece was most hard for me to learn than Malaguena and Soleares; I hate dance and waltz :( .
Your flow (legato) is quite enjoyable with slow tempo. Guitar sound amazing with warm sustain! Finally, you have right recording setup.

Fingerings were a bit harder for me when I started practicing this. You did seemless. After I've played it fast enough, my pinky had a better strength and control.
I think you need to start working on Slurs (both pull-off and hammering) much. Lots of slurs coming ahead in D03 and D04. I believe you will learn trill in D03 6th lesson.

Check out on French, Italian, and Spanish forum also on D02 students. I had a fun watching their submissions.

Don't miss your daily practice and enjoy playing :guitare:

Ken, I have the link to the Spanish board, and I agree that watching other students' submissions is always helpful. But I am having trouble finding the link to the Italian board and the French board. Could you be so kind as to send the link to those two boards. I am surprised it has been so difficult to find. Not sure if there is a listing of the different language boards somewhere, but I sure have not been able to find it.

Thanks, Judy.

Mike, I agree with Ken, great playing. Notably, on this last video, your audio was a lot better than some of the other videos. Perhaps you moved the mic a little further away from your guitar, so the sound was less sharp. Well done.

Not a problem, Judy.

There are links in very tiny letter right under Board Index button.
I added it here too.
French students are very active specially for D02. I think you have to register to listen some of their submissions unless it is YouTube video.

Thanks Ken. Oh my, yes I see it now in the upper left corner. Ken, you are right. The activity varies significantly between the different language boards with respect to the different levels. Thanks again.

Thank you for your nice comments. I discovery that my audio problems were associated with my camera settings. I actually moved the mic closer (you can see it in the this recording) to the guitar and adjusted the camera sensitivity much lower than the past. I'm so glad I finally figured out the issue. Hopefully the audio will be much better going forward.

A little late, here are my submissions for Lesson 5.
Hi, Linda.
It isn't late at all. Take your time to master it.
You can play fairly well with free stroke. I like it!
You are catching up on us. :discussion:

My observation on your submissions.
Scale of C major : You did fine with free stroke, although Maestro Delcamp did it in rest stroke. I also practice scales in rest stroke mostly with metronome.
ANDANTE AFFETTUOSO and ALLEGRETTO NΒ°2 opus 44:
IMO, you could play much better if you played slower with steady tempo.I did Andante much slower than yours. I really didn't play in tempo either. It was too robotic for my taste. You just need to work on connecting between each phrase. You could practice a cut-off spot to connect between 2 measures.
One more thing, Your tone production is a bit scratchy and too light sometimes. Can you put your mic in front of bridge next time? It will help you record with more Bass and Softer treble.

Glad to see you catching up on lessons. Look forward to seeing your submissions for lesson 06. :bravo:
Ken

Ken, thank you. I do rush my tempo, I always have had that tendency and I don’t understand why I find it so difficult to keep an easy pace. It’s another poor habit that a good teacher would not have let me fall into, I’m sure. I’m working on it, so please keep after me whenever necessary. I have a metronome which I’m still working on using, it helps me slow my tempo but it throws my timing off too easily. I never have gotten along with metronomes very well. But its getting easier. Anyway, I have concentrated on breathing and evenness and slowing my tempo with for lesson 6.

For the tinny brittle sound, I’m stuck with that for now. I don’t have a recorder or a microphone that I can adjust to improve the tone. I use my iPhone to record my submissions, and while the camera’s image quality is excellent, the sound reproduction is not the best. The tone is much better than what you have to listen to in the videos, I promise. I wish I had a better setup, I hope I can fix that before we start Level 03.
