Ode To Joy is a very satisfying piece to play, and you play it beautifully, with warm full tones.
For Next week continue to work on Era Una Vez (both Parts). Try using a hammer on on the 16th notes. Practice with the dynamics and emphasis marks in mind.
Also Practice some more the Little Red Fox, trying to use some hammer-ons for the notes that have ties on them.
Pg 14 - use these exercises to practice you Bb chord shape. All of these are exercises using notes that are in the Bb chord. You may not need the entire shape so pay attention to how many strings you need to cover in order to include the notes.
Also, begin to practice Barney and Katey. This is an opportunity to work on your finger choreography. Once you have found the notes, spend some time thinking about the easiest fingering, making sure you are thinking ahead to the next notes.
Attached is the slow version of Barney and Katey.
