    Hello everyone! I haven´t seen your updates from week 2, but I congratulate in advance, you must be doing pretty great 👍

    So, last week I was quite busy as well and it's already over, but I publish my update here since my practice work took place these last days, and I was trying to upload my video yesterday but my computer didn't cooperate too much 😞. I worked on Capricho Arabe like I said, I saw Tariq Harb's lesson for tonebase, and I like it very much! However, I still need to work on more aspects like lowering the volume of the accompaniment to stand out the melody, getting the scales a bit faster, not having my right hand to jump around, and more details I need to internalize. I watched as well William Kanengiser livestream about Biomechanics and it really blew my mind 🤯 really recommend it!  Well, I hope I can make an update soon on week 3 of this piece with some improvement! 

     

    • One thing you found easy: Mostly, I think doing the accents on the melody, I do them with rest stroke.
    • One thing you found difficult: Lots of things, but perhaps the most difficult one  for me is playing the piece completely and with no errors or with all the details right.

    Here is Danza Mora.  I've always loved this piece but never played it till this challenge.  I found it difficult, especially certain left hand passages, and LH fatigue.  I need to spend more time working on it, and to also find some "micro resting" spots for the left hand.

    • Barney That was so good, Barney! What a difficult piece. After the intro, when the theme comes in, I loved the way you played so rhythmically and were alternating your tone colors. You really nailed that section! I have avoided this piece, but you’re making me want to try it.

    Thanks Eric!!  That's another great thing about this Challenge --we share the pieces we play, and thereby encourage each other to play new ones.  Give it a try--it's a great piece and I'm sure you'll be able to handle it very well.
