Interval Review:

Reviewed yesterday's and added 4 new cards. It's official. All the intervals have been added. Yeah! Of course, I'll have to keep the reviews up consistently (the intervals between the higher strings still confuse me).

Na Gafieira Do vidigal
Haven't played this in a while. Played up to part I knew.

Then realized that I was missing some nuances in Part C (I had practiced and documented this on the previous blog, but somehow forgot about it)

Samba Caribe
Played at 65 bpm.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I like the sound quality here (recorded with the Zoom H-2)

Played once through. No metronome, no recording.

Reviewed what I've studied and noticed some subtleties in the original.
