Week 3: Waltzes and Whirls
Welcome to the Main Thread for the third week of "Song and Dance" practice challenge!
Choose a piece that is inspired or transcribed from a song or a dance.

You're welcome to explore pieces from unfamiliar composers or challenge yourself with a complex work.
Commit to daily practice and share your journey with the community. Aim to practice every day and upload at least two videos each week to illustrate your progress. This will not only help you stay committed and encouraged but will also allow you to share your musical voyage with our tonebase family.
Share your favorite piece or recording that embodies the theme of "Song and Dance." Your submission will serve as an inspiration to others and create a vibrant pool of potential pieces for other members to delve into.

Mompou Canción 10A
This is, perhaps, my final on this piece. I've started working on the corresponding dance. I think this version came out pretty well. I keep having little memory glitches but they only registered as pauses - so not too bad. I also noticed my guitar is slightly out of tune - probably from all the takes I have done today.
Mompou Danza 10 B section A first draft
This is a very rough draft of the accompanying Danza to the previous Cancun. This is like the Cancion - there is nothing that is exceptionally difficult in isolation but it is difficult getting it all together. It is beginning to come together. Unfortunately (for me) the second part goes above the 12th fret interspersed with occasional leaps to the 3rd fret. That may take me a while to get a video of that.
Rameau Allemande II 1706 less rough draft
This is still pretty rough but I think it has improved markedly, hence the posting.
I can play most sections successfully (well, by my standards) just not continuously. There are some major blunders but I think many of the parts hold up well, at least in one of the iterations. I hope to get a final soon.
