D03 Classical guitar lesson 07

Postby Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Mar 02, 2016 8:51 am

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 93 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GAMMES - SCALE - SCALES - ESCALAS

Youtube

- page 98 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) ARPÈGES - ARPEGGI - ARPEGGIOS - ARPEGIOS

Youtube




Improvisation work - D03
These exercises in improvisation are to be done several times a week, for several months.
Vary the volume (mf, pp, ff, p ...), timbres and rhythms. Never play the same thing twice, because it would cease to be improvisation, and would become composition.
1/ improvise on a single note (A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube


2/ improvise using only two notes (G - A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube


3/ improvise using only three notes (G - A - B) for 20 seconds

Youtube


Youtube


4/ improvise using only four notes (D - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube


5/ improvise using only 5 notes (D - E - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


6/ improvise using only 6 notes (D - E - G - A - B - C) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


7/ improvise using only 7 notes ((D - E - F - G - A - B - C) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


8/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of DANSE D'AVILA, D02, page 7, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube


9/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of OH! SUSANNA, D02, page 8, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube


10/ improvise a melody upon the harmonic sequence of "Saltaren", D03, page 30.

Youtube

11/ improvise an arpeggio upon the harmonic sequence of "Saltaren", D03, page 30.

Youtube

12/ improvise in chords upon the harmonic sequence of "Saltaren", D03, page 30.

Youtube


13/ improvise a melody upon the harmonic sequence of "Folias", D03, page 31.

Youtube

14/ improvise arpeggios upon the harmonic sequence of "Folias", D03, page 31.

Youtube

15/ improvise in chords upon the harmonic sequence of "Folias", D03, page 31.

Youtube




Next, we will be working on 3 pieces.
- page 22 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) RUJERO
- page 57 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°23
- page 82 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) NOVELETTE 001

Youtube


Youtube


Youtube



I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
- page 57 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°23
- 14/ improvise arpeggios upon the harmonic sequence of "Folias", D03, page 31.
- I ask every one of the students to take part in at least one of the musical games. If the games proposed seem too difficult for you, it is up to you to suggest new ones, adapted to your level and designed with your own rules.



Good luck!


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

Hi everyone. I started a musical game in the Musical Games folder under "D03 lesson 7". I am not sure if I do it correctly. Please let me know if I need to change something.

Dennis, I'm wondering if you need to specify number of players, so the last one would close with a cadence?

Hi David, thanks for pointing it out. I will change it to 4 players, also to two voices.

Hello,

So we have to post the musical game at a specific thread instead of here?
I wanted to hear what Dennis and David did, and I got a message that I could not download the file.
Do I need to do something specific?
Thank you in advance :)

Hi Eva. You probably need to download a player in order to play the files. I sugest you download the "VLC Player", its a free programm. You can find it in the link below. Once you have downloaded and installed VLC, right click the music file - Open with - VLC media player.

Here is my recording for the Paganini piece. I found it quiet chalenging, especially the pinky stretch in bar 27 was hard to get whitout a string buzz.

Eva, I think you need to be logged in to be able to download files from this site. The screenshot you posted indicates that you weren't.

Dennis, you are doing well in the Paganini piece. Not a big challenge for you :P
p.s. Your bass notes damping is accurate. That's something more I'm missing.

Hi Angela, first of all, impressive how quick you have caught up on all the lessons. It seems right on the end of the improvisation you have lost your pace a bit. On the Paganini try to be a bit thighter on dampening the bass notes.

Hi Dennis

Thank you watch my video,
On the Paganini , damping is my weakness, sometimes, I care for the melody lose the damp.
anyway still need more practice.
I watched your video,you play good, every notes is clean.


Thank you!
