Thank you so much for such detailed analysis on my recording. I am surely super inspired by your motivation and dedication. I watched a bunch of things you posted here, and tried to work on a few things today.
I am currently in Brazil for thanksgiving visiting my family, and I have not played this song for at least a week. I did give…[Read more]
The extended fragment that I play from the 2nd Movement of Harpsichord Concerto No. 5 in F Minor by J. S. Bach (BWV 1056) is shown below.
This is essentially a combination of the fragment by Edson Lopes and an extract from a transcription by Daniel Schatz (the last 6 measures) that he made available in the classicalguitardelcamp.org…[Read more]
@kkconroy Thank you for pulling me into this group, I feel a bit intimidated by grade 5, so much technical exercises in the grade before you even get to the repertoire pieces, I’m sure it will be worth is but it will take a lot of hard work and patience. I really need to make a plan and decide what I want focus on first. I plan to have read…[Read more]
I’ve just started level 5 as well, challenges are different now. I consider this bouree piece super hard. I have all sorts of troubles playing it, because all…[Read more]
@kkconroy Hi Kari, I just wanted to thank you for the note on my progress journal. I am going to test for level 2 this spring. Where are you currently?
I’m thrilled to hear you are going to give G2 a go this Spring. I’m cheering you on!
Currently, I’m working on G5. I hope to submit next fall during the September submission opening. Fingers crossed!
Wishing you many hours of fun (and yes, lots of practice and hard work…but we will stress the fun instead 😉)
Thank you all, I’m somewhat overwhelmed; I didn’t expect this kind of response.
Richard @gillrich so happy you liked it. A guitar transcription sounds cool but I’m still stuck in the land of 1st position. Not to mention it would be one more piece I can’t play.
I’m with Scott @sjbrandenberg . It looks like it was a fantastic time, but just a bit too far for me for one weekend (I’m not smart enough to figure out the metric distance).
I agree with everyone else so far. As long as you are getting benefits from the exercise then keep on working it. But, once you have learned what is being taught then it is probably time to move on to the next thing. For my own practice now I spend a decent amount of time with the technical routines. I work the individual lessons until I am…[Read more]
@kkconroy Great selfie of you and that handsome dude with the grey beard. Totally looks like a post-Flirty-Fizz pic.
But I really appreciate the picture you provided of your RH after the Powis-manicure. Very helpful.
I am finally coming around to growing my nails a little (hard to teach an old horse, new tricks) and that pic provides a…[Read more]
Greetings CGCA’ers, friends, and anyone who has blindly stumbled upon this by mistake. As anyone who knows me will know, this is not so much a progress journal, but a general chit-chat. If you’re not interested in my holiday update then I suggest that you jump halfway down the page.
When going to Brittany, we normally sail on the…[Read more]

Thank you, Steve!
@kkconroy – the new stage was just finished yesterday – there were lots of delays but well worth the wait! Pics coming soon!

For this week I have continued focusing on finger weight. I previously uploaded a video in which I kept the rhythm the same, but altered the accents. This video is the other variation in which I adjust the rhythm so that the accents fall on the beat. I got a little behind the beat for the 6tuplets. This is at…[Read more]
I appreciate the feedback Robert. Since Simon answered my question of how to elevate a piece from practice to performance by recording and watching I figured I should probably listen to him. Also, no matter how good I can get a current piece, whenever that red light turns on to record it all goes out the window. However, even two sessions of doing…[Read more]
One of my favorite parts of CGCA is all of the positive feedback given by the members to the members (sounds like Roger’s podcast!). This is such a positive and supportive community, and I think it’s fantastic to have so many people cheering each other on. I know I really do appreciate all of the positive comments that I receive. I…[Read more]
Thank you for your feedback @kkconroy !
I also keep a handheld journal, that is a good way to keep track everything (not only music related stuff). I attended to the live seminar once as a listener only. This year I have been traveling too much (for work) and so I don’t have as much time as I would like to have to practice. I am pushing myself to…[Read more]
