Yes they tend to submit finished work here rather than student work in progress. That’s been a challenge for me with the harder material. I don’t think I’ve submitted anything I’d call performance ready. They also tend to take every suggestion of JFD literally as “the rules.” I submitted after 6 days onece instead of one week and I got criticized by some participants and warned by the mod. Jeesh!
Interesting difference in approach. I know a few people from the English forum who have been used to posting work in progress were surprised when submitting at <7 over here.
When you say finished work I assume you mean "this is what I would submit if it were an exam piece"?

Yes, well my exam pieces aren’t perfect either, but that’s the idea.

Rick, this difference in approach is interesting, and quite frankly, exactly opposite to what I would have expected. Just out of interest, I completed an MBA, about 12 years ago. While I did not do a global MBA, which included international travel and international study groups, my classmates who did, always commented on how the 'Europeans' were much easier-going than the Canadians, and were quite willing to stretch or bypass rules, whereas the Canucks were an uptight group. Independent of that limited perspective, in general, I always had the impression that Europeans embrace a more laissez-faire attitude than North Americans. Go figure.

Well of course I should not generalize and maybe my experience is an outlier. But the strict rules of this forum, which are based on strict French laws about copyright and such, apparently—not an expert here—would tend to support my experience. Don’t get me wrong, I love the rules of the site and generally the mods and their efforts to keep it clean so to speak. But apparently the site has a reputation among the more “libertarian” web crawlers.

How are you finding your experience with the lessons? You seem to have an active group and good students. And you’re playing well.

Hi Rick, 'My' D01 group is quite a bit larger than 'my' D02 group - this latter group has only 4 students. But all the students are engaging and keen. In D02, Ken Kim is an excellent player and I particularly learn a lot from reviewing his submissions and benefit from his constructive critiques of my playing. All and all, a very positive experience. I sure hope the Delcamp forum continues in earnest for many years to come.

Hey you guys can stay alive by popping in to lessons D06 or 7 in Spanish and hear some music and provide some critique and encouragement. We need it! .......
Thanks Rick, I will have a look at this exalted group. Not sure I could offer much in tne way of critique, but encouragement, yes.

What a great way to stay alive on the Spanish board - watching a parody of the Bee Gees. Thank you Rick.

P.S. If there is no general classical guitar topic to discuss, I would not be averse to enjoying a monthly musical parody to keep us all alive and safe from mortal drop-off on the Spanish board.
