Hey there,
some of you may know that I had an exam today. I played 3 pieces on classical guitar and I had a pretty bad feeling. I wasn´t sure about the notes and I didn´t practise really hard for it... However, the result is excellent: 54/60. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif I don´t know how I managed to get more than in the previous exam (53/60) where I felt much more comfortable. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! laugh.gif

Great Tolek! Funny how that is sometimes. I remember taking tests that I thought I aced only to receive a lower score than expected. Also had times where I though all was lost only to do well. Go figure.

Congrats Tolek! Well done. smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato
