Three Newfoundland tunes from the west coast of the Island. The first two composed by Emile Benoit and the last Rufus Guinchard. I'm posting these for more criticisms! I can hear most of what I need to improve on but any input is welcome.

These tunes work nicely together and are lovely tunes. Honestly, I think you took them a bit too fast, and you're reinforcing a bad habit by recording them before you can play them all smoothly at this tempo. I would slow them down and work on accuracy and even timing, then speed them up to a tempo where they are more comfortable (and smooth from start to finish). Great tunes, thanks for posting!

They were mighty pretty when you started.I wish i could get your tone with my picks on,but it did get alittle cluttered when you got sped up.Very nice though.I can't keep my tempo under control on intricate stuff ,i always speed up with out a rhythym aid,i pick 3 finger.Very nice tunes,very nice playing

Thanks for the advice! yes, too fast...I blame the coffee. I'm not sorry I recorded though, this' the first actual piece of advice i've had from my superiors. so thanks, and hopefully soon i'll load a better version and some other tunes...
