Nice playing man. The only thing I would say is maybe to dampen a little later. Let the notes ring out for their full rhythmic value and dampen close to at the same time that you play the next note. I really liked your version of etude 5 and I think I did not notice it so much in that one because the top and bottom notes were not being dampened. I think that will make a big difference in the overall effect.

Disclaimer: That is not to say that you shouldn't ever dampen a little earlier. Certainly in situations where you want it to sound a little more tenuto you would do that.

Can't wait to hear more!
