How is the open B cut short when the C is played with the 4th finger on the third string?cedartop wrote: ↑Tue Sep 05, 2017 10:14 pmThe problem with this change in voicing is that it changes the value of the "b" to an eighth note instead of a quarter note. So the "b" no longer continues to ring as the eight note "c" is placed. I don't have the music in front of me and it has been at least 30 years since I played this piece, but as I recall this is part of a sequence in which one would like to keep the voicing in each repetition of the sequence the same. Segovia's fingering may be difficult, but it does preserve the printed voicing. There was a musical reason for the fingering.
You are correct -sorry - misread the score (I'm old ).
Me too cedartop - and just so you know, you are probably right in my case. If I were to play using the revised fingering, the B would probably get cut off anyway because my 4th finger would most likely rub against it.
