Donna, what a terrific pic of this lovely ensemble – these young teenagers are dressed so nicely for the occasion and look so earnest and proud of their musical accomplishment. I have no doubt that the overall positive and enriching gestalt of the concert is a testament to the dedication of their excellent teacher. I am sure that you and your…[Read more]
Whoa David, I agree with Diane – I admire your commitment and am envious of your musical vigor. You are setting the pace for us, grade 2 students. Could you please send me some of that discipline, seamlessly through the internet. I need it. Then again, I will be following your posts and I think that will be a good motivator.

Dave, well done. You don’t even have to pause between the replays. Yes, consistency is my bugbear, for sure, but I think you have mastered it.
This is my week 3 submission. I did experiment with alternate fingering for some of the measures, but returned to the recommended fingering. I will stick with that now.
My main challenge is consistency, so I posted a two-fer.
Glenn and Diane, I also attempted the alternate fingering for the first A in measure 11, and found that it did not work for me either, so I went back to the suggested fingering.
Glenn, with regard to the barre in measure 10, I was using the barre from the get-go, but then I tried what you suggested, placing the barre only when you play the F…[Read more]
Roger, you da man! Okay Roger, I am going to revisit this observation that I noted in another post. Are you sure you are not the (much) slimmer first cousin of Scott Tenant? Even on this forum, your picture sure resembles a Scott Tenant look-alike. That is a compliment, because your playing is darn good too, just like your first cousin…[Read more]

Dave, great consistency on repetition. That’s what I am aiming for.
Thanks Glenn, this video is right-on-point and very helpful.
I have previously noticed from other (Strings by Mail) videos that Gohar has a real penchant for teaching classical guitar and a singular aptitude for succinctly relaying important pointers that will result in improved technique and playing.
Thank you again. Great stuff.
Thanks Glenn. I am aspiring to achieve the consistency demonstrated by Dave Lundell’s performance, where last week, he effortlessly provided two-in-a-row renditions of the measures.
For now, when I get it okay the first time, I seem to flub it the second time in-a-row. I want to try to achieve some consistency in playing those measures, which…[Read more]
Here is my week #2 posting for Guiliani Etude No. 1. I tried to get more legato-ish while playing this segment.
When I try to be play more legato-like, I find that I have to ‘sacrifice’ some tempo/speed. I presume that is inevitable, or maybe not … maybe it’s just me, and I simply cannot walk and chew gum at the same…[Read more]
Glenn, you’re the best. A dedicated and disciplined guitar student and really a leader in our guitar group – taking the initiative to organize our Grade 2 group.
I, likewise, enjoy watching your progress. I just recall your post prior to posting your grade 1 submission, where you stated that you sort of had to be prodded to actually post your…[Read more]
I agree with Deb’s appraisal. Solid start with accurate fingering. Now to the legato …. Seems like most of us are facing the same challenge moving forward.
Glenn, slow and steady is how we all start. Good tone.
Just wondering, when some students post their videos, it is posted as a link (as in this case), whereas when other students post their videos (as I do), the video itself is on full display. How are you posting, so that the video comes up as a link?
Glenn, I’ve noticed that your playing…[Read more]
