I'm so new to classical playing. This is the first song I've learned on my nylon string guitar.

Am I doing it right? How's my technique? I'm so lost on this. unsure.gif Electric guitar I understand; nylon strings, not so much.

The position of the guitar is kinda low, you are bendong yourself to the left. Try putting the guitar so he headstock is at your eyes level.
You are playing fast notes repetition on the same string using the same finger, it is a better idea to alternate.
Your right hand seems anchored and plucking from the middle joint of the finger, try plucking from the big joint of the finger.
Then sitting stuff is somthing personal and if you are confortable and can play fine that´s ok, the finger joint stuff will mater when you are playing only acoustically.
Also the angle of your right wrist is not a good idea, si too flat, try a 15/20 grade angle this way your fingers fill have room to move.

I'm completely lost too when it comes to nylons, but i think it sounded good smile.gif There's some weak notes at the end though that didnt come clear enough through.
But It does sound better than any of my attempts at nylon-fingerplaying smile.gif

Some great advice there, Gerardo smile.gif

Sounds good. I think you have to pick lot harder then that, grow some nails if you can:)
Though, I am not classical guitar player so listen to Gerardo.smile.gif

Your guitar looks nice, I wonder how it would sound with pick!

Gerardo said it all. You'll see it will be easier and plucking will be clearer and more crystalized by only those two things: hold your guitar on your left knee and raise its neck and make a "spoon" from your right hand, so only the fingers would work, without a wrist.

Gerardo told you all smile.gif

Generally you got the right rhythmical feel of the lesson, I like it how you play, of course there is a lot room for improvement and development but you understood the tune and that's great. smile.gif

I suggest you first to try to place your guitar in a more comfortable position, try rising the left foot on a stool or something similar and put the guitar on the left foot, that will enable you to have your back straight and the right hand will be in more comfortable position.

Regarding the right hand picking, it is common for beginners to pick with one finger only, try to get rid of that as soon as possible and to alternate index and middle fingers. I know it's not easy to alternate fingers while playing bass strings with thumb, but practice and it will reward you smile.gif

It's great that you're showing interest for classical music, if I can help you in any way I would be glad to smile.gif
