You got that right, JR!
I knew at Summer School that if I didn’t get Yoko on board, some other talent scout was going to steal her.
Definitely upped our game, and lent us some much needed cred.
Thanks for listening & hope you’re doing well,
Another editing nightmare might be a round table discussion of reflections and contemplations amongst you, Dave, Niki, and the Ambassadors.
Simpler might be the same, asynchronously.
Thanks for asking!
Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out with this! I figured that at least part of the solution would be slowing the tempo way down, which I’ll do. I’m not a particularly fast learner, but I guess this patience thing is part of growing up ;-/
I know exactly what you mean about mirrors, but the good news is that most of me…[Read more]
I’m almost too embarrassed to post this video, but hoping for some good ideas to tame the RH pinky. Here are mine:
1. Relax – the eventual plan is to try to become comfortable with this passage 10-20% above the tempo at which I hope to perform it. I’d like to be relaxed & chill at 100bpm, so that means 110-120 (this is at 90).
2. Use a mirro…[Read more]

You’re too kind, Janie..thanks a bunch!!
I totally agree with your assessment of speed demon interpretations. Not sure if I already mentioned it, but Alvaro Pierri (?sp) takes his time (bought the mp3 from Amazon) and I think is worth studying.
Niki’s recommendation to use dotted rhythms has helped quite a bit..thanks for passing that along. I hope to get that Member…[Read more]
Greetings, Team 6!
I had a little time after recording a member challenge update (actually, my first ;-/) so gave this a run through. In the Lento section, with the exception of starting on the D-string, I’ve gone back to a fingering pretty close to that in the score in order to emphasize the important notes in each of the bass phrases. Q…[Read more]
Your Dowland divisions were definitely one of the highlights of Summer School for me, and the Praeludium section sounds quite strong. I admire your dedication, and look forward to your progress on what I believe is a very challenging piece of music!!
The Charlton also sounds like it’s coming along..he really writes nice music for the…[Read more]
This will probably be in the lesson, but I’m starting to work on this and have a question. My score has a super awkward A to D jump as the last two notes of measure 12, but watching your video over & over, I’d guess that you’re playing an F# instead of an A (at around 1:10), which seems to make more sense both technically & musically.…[Read more]
Roger and David,
Although I’ve enjoyed all 27 episodes of the RogCast, I feel like I’ve Just now attended the 1st meeting of Classical Guitarist Anonymous: “My name is _______, and I am a classical guitar addict”.
What a great video!
What were they selling again?
Actually, I totally loved the part about how to carry the guitar lift.
As long as I am in total jerk mode, is enourmous the Australian or German spelling?
One thing is for sure, the guitar lift won’t destroy my watches the way that the sageworks guitar support did. looks like it’s definitely worth…[Read more]
