WEEK TWO Updates: Main Thread - Where the magic continues!

Alright, welcome to WEEK TWO of the Main Thread for this challenge! 💪


Why is this thread necessary?

Well, with the initial main thread turning into a 500-post behemoth (😵), it became hard to navigate.

This comes at the very end of Week 2. Therefore, very soon, I'll be making a different thread for Week 3! We're almost there, folks, just two more days to go until Week 3! 😎


But Mircea - I hear you say - can we still post in the old thread?

Yes, of course! Feel free to reply to others in the old thread to your heart's content. Just make sure you post any new updates (whether text or video) in this thread instead.


"Oh no, I didn't see this thread, so I posted a new update in the old thread!"

No problem at all! Just tag me (@Mircea) and I'll move your post 😎 These admin powers I got here are actually pretty cool! It turns out I can move individual replies between threads.


Where is the Week 1 thread?

Please use the following format when commenting (feel free to copy & paste!):

  • Etude you worked on:
  • One thing you found easy:
  • One thing you found difficult:
  • (Optional): a video of you performing it!

Sample daily update:

  • Etude you worked on: No. 1
  • One thing you found easy: The polyphony between bass and treble flowed very naturally, I had an easy time playing each line like it belonged to its own voice.
  • One thing you found difficult: I had a hard time creating enough variety throughout the repeated measures.

Feel free to make these updates as short or long as you wish!

  • to make up for lost time I practiced a bit more today and listened to the great tonebase lesson by Sanel Redzic. My second recording:

    etude you worked on: op.35 , no 3,

    one thing you found easy: singing melodic line, full tone in fifth position,

    strings (2) (3).  

    one thing you found difficult: eliminate nail sounds, keep the rythmic pattern crisp enough. Keep balance between voices. However quiet and easy a piece is,  some tone issues will pop up

  • Hello, I'm impressed to see all the posts here and how all of you manage to produce such great content! I finally managed myself to produce a video, what a consuming process, but I really hope to get better and find my way through.

    Since last week I quickly read through most of the studies and then figured out I should start posting my progress on a few of them. I'll start with #4, one of the most popular among you and for sure one of the most beautiful of the set. It was an easy read but keeping the legato and maintaining a good balance between parts was an harder story.

    • Blaise Laflamme beautiful. You have a clean and controlled sound. I’m jealous because my sound has always been messy. I’m always working on that
