    @juleshere – Beautifully played! Only thing I’d suggest is to work on the transition from the strumming back into fingerpicking. See if you can get it a little faster, so there’s no gap in the timing. And TY for the kind words, much appreciated!

    Aloha everyone

    Here is my submission for this month’s challenge. This piece is deceivingly easy but challenging to get every note clean and to the beat 🙂

    I really enjoyed this arrangement. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to get a take where I don’t rush or mess up one of the three parts so I better submit before I drive my family insane 🙂

    Oh, and I received my Taimane goodies last week and they are the coolest. I meant to show them in the video but I forgot! Thanks again, Andrew and Taimane!

    @gmflin8 – well done, Grace! Friendly reminder, don’t forget to tune up before recording. So the one area I’d work on is to not pull down on the C string in the strumming section. We always want the strings to remain parallel, so that the note doesn’t turn sharp. In a previous feedback video this month, I talked about that for another member. So you may want to check that out if you want some extra tips 🙂


    @kirpuff
    – Glad you dig the goodies, Sara! Performance was great! My only suggestion is to throw in a few staccato hits in that first melody section. I think it sounds cool to have a melodic blend of sustain and staccato. Keep up the great work!

    @milky1312 – Well done! One thing I’d work on is lightening your right hand attack. A lighter pluck and strum will produce a softer, sweeter tone. Check out this live lesson that Matt taught. He dives deeper into this concept.
