Good technique!  I can tell you have a lot of control - much more than I do, anyway..  Your playing is very rhythmically accurate, yet it doesnt seem mechanical.  This is very VERY hard to do! Congratulations and keep going!

I do not understand why you all call it "'double'-thirds"......means it doulbe notes,trill,or for two hands?

  I know, but everyone refers to them as such, so I keep up the tradition, heh.

I just listened to the etude, and it is very solid, but lacks feeling and is all too mechaninical tempo-wise (maybe this was your intention).

As opposed to what?

...my technique is not enough to do the thirds chromatic in the reminiscences de Don Juan.It's not hard to do thirds slow,but it's very hard when going fast...

I really liked the etude!  If you play it up to speed with quality it will sound amazing.  Good Job!

I listened to the etude, and it's good. I especially liked your clean, clear bassline and your attention to voicings in the bass chords. Unfortunately, your slow tempo made it sound mechanical and more like an etude than a concert etude. With an increased tempo and some creative pedaling, you can make the chromatic thirds like glissandi. And when the melody is in the moving thirds, think of the Will O Wisps dancing on the wind. That is the texture and character this etude needs to move from a finger-breaking technique builder to a musical masterpiece.
