    Yay - no more backlighting!

    John - even though the picture is better, I'm not real crazy about the camera angle, because we can't see your hand positions. From high up like that, we only see the side-to-side, but not the up and down. (make sense?)

    I think the camera should be more level with the keyboard, or at least not that high.

    hands

    Your hands do look nice and relaxed very similar to the training I've had. Relaxed wrists are a must for playing the instrument. Good job.

    By the way, why do your videos open for me, but the others won't?

    thanks every one. I have deleted this file.

    John.....I aimed to make this file to work in -quick time player and nero SHOW TIME in mp4 files not MPEG. WMA-widow media...is a pain in some cases.

    See my latest one-more hands view...

    All these three video are now up on the site (sorry it took some time, busy busy) and I agree that wmv-format is better because many more people will be able to watch it without installing new software (Windows Media Player comes with Windows, for you Mac guys, not sure if it is ported).

    I have watched all three videos and I am very impressed by your achievement. These etudes are very difficult to play well and even though there are some wrong keys here and there (especially in the crazy arpeggio etude, op.10 no.1), you keep the musical line intact.

    I can't remember when you first submitted the Op.10 no.1 etude but it may be 2 years ago and from that time, you have made an incredible progress. I studied this etude more or less daily in 2 years before I made the recording I have up on the site and know the kind of dedication it takes to perform any of the etudes you have submitted well. I also remember you asking me for advice and hopefully, I mentioned something useful. Otherwise, we host Malcolm Kandzia's complete study guide to the Chopin etudes at: Op.10 - Study Guide and Op.25 - Study Guide

    Congratulations! Now, only another 21 etude to go ;).

    thanks Robert and everyone.

    The whole ides to put on video is to redo all my etude with new more relaxed technique approach...happed coincide with Leschitizy method. That to produce a relaxed tone.
    I will look into your method too. and come up with ultimate method for my use?

    I am still not happy with op10-1. My aim acheivement for this video submission is to create a relaxed lh line vs RH melody line. And I did it where I did not acheive this in my previous sumbission or 2 years ago.

    My next project is too ELIMINATE op10-1 slips and one slip in op10/5.

    Thanks
