@Andrew, apologies if this is answered elsewhere. If a player has some parts of a song down fairly well, but has to slow up quite a bit for other parts, do you recommend playing the whole piece at the slower tempo (in the interests of practicing consistent tempo always), or is it ok if we change fast to slow, depending? I think I’ve got most of Wipe Out, but struggle on the muted strum section.July 12, 2021 at 5:59 pm #47648
I’d target my practice to bring those areas up to speed. But if you hit the performance deadline and need to play the entire song, choose a slower tempo to keep everything steady.July 12, 2021 at 8:59 pm #47650shmu88Participant

Hi all, I know it’s a bit early to post my final video but every week I can’t wait to try and learn the weekly new song and go forward, and there is so little time to practice all of it…so little “Summertime” (Andrew gets it ;)).

@shmu88 – Bravo, Sam! You nailed the vibe/feel! Only thing I’d say is keep working on the tricky transitions in bars 8 and 9. Keep up the great work!July 14, 2021 at 11:06 am #47658July 17, 2021 at 2:24 am #47661cheun133Participant
Here’s my attempt on the Summertime Blues.
Thank you for listening!July 17, 2021 at 3:14 pm #47662
@cheun133 – Performance was great! Watch out for rushing, like the bar before the ritardando. But honestly, this is me nitpicking. It was well played, keep up the great work!July 18, 2021 at 2:35 am #47663ebetsimoParticipant

Whoops–accidental post.July 19, 2021 at 3:36 pm #47669ukandreaParticipant
Here comes my submission for Wipe Out:
I don’t get the percussive part so cool as Andrew but my personal success of the day is that I did for the first time just one according attempt and with no cutting.
I also plan to submit Summertime, but need to practice more.

I thought that sounded great!
Your percussion was very good and even.July 22, 2021 at 11:51 am #47674
@ukandrea – BIG improvement over your earlier take! One tip, work on the timing coming out of the percussion section. Try to keep it a bit more steady. But overall, bravo!July 22, 2021 at 3:40 pm #47690smokealotParticipant
Summertime is such a cool song to play! Big thanks to Steven! Poeple around me will have to listen to it a lot more 🙂
I especially had lots of fun working on nuances since Steven played it so brilliantly – it really showed me how differently one song can sound. Not that I am close to beeing satisfied with my performence bit I had fun with it!July 23, 2021 at 12:40 am #47695wongbrownParticipant

Here is my submission. I have chosen Summertime. I was unable to download as usual in YouTube so I have tried iCloud. Hope it works.
Guess I will keep on practice and pay attention to the tempo and the swimg bits. Hopefully get some feedback and submit a second attempt by end of the month. ThanksJuly 23, 2021 at 5:52 am #47696wongbrownParticipant
Just managed to upload it to YouTube.
