Chris. Good job on the Brescianello. :bravo: It will be more nice to listen to if you try to hold a steady tempo (based on the difficult parts).

Loiseng. Good Brescianello. :casque: The only thing I want to comment is some lack of damping. The Pernambuco was really good. I think you may want to check some of the bass notes A vs E (measure 19, 27, and maybe some other). Taking care of damping (measure 20, 28) would also improve the bass line. I know it is difficult at this speed (I often damp to hard making the damped string hit the frets)

John. Both pieces are very fluent and accurate. Some buzzes, but really enjoyable. The Carcassi also! :casque:

Eric. Good job on all pieces. :casque: Good damping on the Brescianello! And thanks for the background info!

Guiseppe. Very good Pernambuco. Measure 20 sounds a bit syncopated, it does fit in nice. :casque:

:bravo: :bravo:

Hi Chris,

Kudos for attempting the Sons de Carillhoes, it can be a tough piece. I still have a few things to polish on it as well.

Aside from the obvious things that you'd want to work on to make it better, I did notice that measures 8-11 appear to be skipped in Part A and in all the repeats. Watch for that on the next reading/practice session with the piece.

Hello,

It's taking me longer than I hoped for to catch up :) Thank you so much to all for all the good feedback. Here's my attempt at the 4th lesson:

Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello (1690-1757) Allegro de la Partita VII:

For some reason I really love this piece. It's complicated as there are many many hidden details in the length of the notes (which I tried to keep to their strict length except in few places where I thought it feels more in the style of the guitar to let ring (e.g. measure 4). The fingering of measure 41 was beyond my finger joints so I had to change it (G with 3 and C and A both with 1, next F with 2. Anyway I kinda butchered it:

Youtube



João Guimarães (pernambuco) (1883-1947) Sons de carillhões:

This piece is amazing and I plan to keep playing it. My wife pointed out that it gets repetitive so I guess I need to work on tone variation to make it more interesting. While playing it I had 1s memory losses (you'll see) :) I guess I'm not getting enough sleep :D

Looking forward to your suggestions. (I hope to have caught up for the next lesson so that I can give more timely feedback to all fellow students :) )

Cheers,

Michele

Satyajit, nice execution and control of the note length! A couple of suggestions: in a few points (e.g. In the beginning) the tempo seems a bit unsteady, e.g., faster then slower. I have problems keeping tempo myself so I'll start using a metronome soon. Second suggestion is on the posture for both right and left hand. The left hand the thumb should stay, generally speaking around the center of the back of the neck. Having the thumb hanging on the top side of the neck can be comfortable but limits the left hand reach quite a lot. For the right hand the side of the hand in line with the pinkie should be close to orthogonal to the strings (gently lay the forearm on the edge of the guitar and let the right hand flow down relaxed following gravity, helps checking with a mirror or video) the hand will be at an angle with the forearm but a comfortable one. Check some of the many videos of Segovia watching for posture. Also, but this may be a personal choice you're keeping the right hand fingers a bit separate, usually I believe it helps striving to minimize travel distance.

Cheers and congratulations on the good progress!

Here's my try at Brescianello's Allegro. I'm having trouble musically with this one. I guess I just don't like it very much :(
