I practiced exercise 10 with the metronome at 80 sixteenth notes per minute. I tried practicing the piece backwards and this new way of practicing helped to smooth out some of the rough parts of the piece. I practiced for about 45 minutes and I feel like I am making good progress.

I have found excersise no. 10 (aguado) to be a pretty difficult piece to master. There are a lot more notes and the fingerings are strange, for example in the second measure the piece has me play e on the b string and then the open high e string right after rather than just hitting the open high e string twice. I am struggling through the first few phrases now and I hope I can have the whole piece by the end of the week.
