I wish to start learning Bach BWV 1001 Presto. Anybody out there who can give me some advice, suggestions or guidance how to exercise? Thanks in advance.

Just started learning Segovia's Sor studies Nos. 1 (Op. 6, No. 8 ) and 2 (Op. 35, No. 13). No. 1 looks a lot easier than it is, while No. 2 looks a lot harder. :shock: :!:

I'm Impressed. I just listened to David Russell's playing of the piece. It's lovely, but definitely sounds to be a handful of work. My hat's off to you for taking this piece on. I'll bet it sounds wonderful on your Giovanni Tacchi 'Frederich!!

Cheers,

Hi Jack, thanks for your kind reply. Yes, indeed, it is a challenge. Particularly the Tarrega typical glissandos and the last measures in the highest register. But it's such a gem, absolutely worth to give it a try.

I'll check it out. My current study piece is my Mertz, Volume 1, Character Pieces, 'Capriccio', currently just getting the fingerings sorted out. Next lesson my teacher said he would help me understand how to approach the piece.

Have a good weekend.

I love Mertz and his beautiful arrangements of romantic composers like Schubert. Good luck with it. I would like to play Lob der Tränen. But I am hesitant. Quite difficult.

I am looking for intermediatish pieces for a bit of busking and thought I might try something a bit different. I bought the Classical Guitar Collection by Einaudio, transcribed by Matt Cowe and so far have learnt Farewell to the Past. Up next is Primavera from the same collection, a lovely piece and like the others in this collection not too difficult.

Still resolute in getting Bach's second cello suite down and memorized...without listening to the siren call of certain movements of the sixth suite :D One at a time :lol:

Currently finishing up the courante from BWV 995, then I will finally have Bach's Third Lute Suite completed!

Congratulations, that's a difficult work to play. I haven't tried to tackle anything from BWV 995-1001 quite yet.

Almost finished memorizing Cavatina. Also working on Granada by Albeniz. And some pieces by Ludivico Einaudi.

I'm also learning some pieces from Einaudi's book, in particular "Le onde". His music sounds so great on the guitar!
