D03 Classical guitar lesson 05

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Tue Jan 05, 2016 2:40 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D03.
If you are new to the course, please read this message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.




Today, we're going to work on a series of exercises.
- page 90, numbers 16, 17 - Jean-François DELCAMP - SCALES
When changes of position are needed, you will be using the "position shift" technique. Position I is the left hand position where the index finger (1) is placed behind the 1st fret, position V is the hand position where the index (1) is placed behind the fifth fret, etc. The position shift involves moving the left hand along the neck, from position to position, from fret to fret. In the scales we're looking at today, notice that my first finger never leaves the first string, I use it as a guide for my hand. Position shifts are shown by oblique lines linking two fingering indications given for the same finger.
The following videos are for numbers 16, 17 on page 90. Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.

- Page 95, numbers 32, 33, 34, 35, 36. Jean-François DELCAMP - SLURS
We have already worked on the rest stroke (apoyando) with the fingers of the right hand. Now we are going to work on doing a rest stroke with the fingers of the left hand. That is the best way to learn how to execute descending slurs.

Finally, we'll look at 4 pieces, pages 39, 42, 43, 56 et 58.
- page 39 Ferdinand CARULLI (1770-1841) PRELUDE N°4 opus 114
Practise playing this arpeggio while keeping 3 fingers on the strings throughout. Doing it this way will teach you to make the necessary finger movement without it triggering involuntary and unwanted movements by the other fingers.

Youtube


Youtube




- pages 42-43 Ferdinand CARULLI (1770-1841) VALSE

Youtube




- page 56 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°1
There are numerous repetitions, so vary the tone colour to avoid monotony. To obtain different tone colours, play:
- over the soundhole (the sound volume is at its best here and you get a good balance between the bass and treble notes);
- over the fingerboard (the sound here is softer, closer to the that of a clarinet, and the basses are softened);
- near the bridge (the sound here is more metallic, and becomes close to that of the harpsichord, the basses are strengthened and the trebles weakened).

Youtube




- page 58 Dionisio AGUADO (1784-1849) LECCION N°19
Practise playing this arpeggio while keeping 2 fingers on the strings throughout. Doing it this way will teach you to make the necessary finger movement without it triggering involuntary and unwanted movements by the other fingers.

Youtube




I ask you first to work on all these exercises and pieces for one week and then to post your recordings on the forum for:
- page 39 Ferdinand CARULLI (1770-1841) PRELUDE N°4 opus 114
- page 56 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°1



Good luck!


I thank Geoff (GeoffB) who has helped in the translation of my lessons into English.

I Carulli Prelude No 4, why does the music suggest a bar to play the A chord in the 7th measure instead of just using the 1-2-3 fingers? Is it just to practice bars? It seems very awkward to me.

Hi David, sounds good. The only advice i can give you, try to dampen the bass notes on the Paganini. Apart from that its very nicely played, as always. :bravo:

Very nice David! :bravo: I am finding Chiribizzo to be a bit more difficult on the second half to keep it smooth. Well done.

Dennis, you mean Ghiribizzo? Yes, I noticed that you're doing pretty good on damping in this piece.
Bill, take your time and you'll get it done!

Are my submissions visible, or did I do something wrong in the security settings on youtube?
