D02 Classical guitar lesson 08

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Mar 30, 2016 10:41 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D02.
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.




First we will study some technical exercises from volume D02.
- page 77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GAMMES - SCALE - SCALES – ESCALAS
When changes of position are needed, you will be using the "position shift" technique. The position shift involves moving the left hand along the neck, from position to position, from fret to fret. Position shifts are shown by oblique lines linking two fingering indications given for the same finger.
Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.

Youtube


- page 80 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
Ascending slurs are produced by striking (hammering down on) the string with a left hand finger. The faster and more decisive this movement is, the more volume is obtained. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.

Youtube


- page 82 number 34 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) ARPÈGES - ARPEGGI - ARPEGGIOS – ARPEGIOS

Youtube


- page 86 6/ Improvise using only 6 notes (D E G A B C) for 20'.

Youtube


Youtube





Next we'll work on five pieces :
- page 35 Johann-Philipp KRIEGER (1652-1735) MENUET
- page 37 Henry PURCELL (1659-1695) MENUET Z. 649
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemiola

Youtube


Youtube


The Tarentela and the 2 Villanos are played using strums with the index finger. The arrows indicate the direction of the strum. In the strum, several strings are struck in rapid succession, to give the effect of a chord, that is to say of notes played simultaneously.

- page 43 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA TARENTELA
In bars 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8 the thumb rests on the 6th string. In bars 3, 6 and 7 the thumb rests on the 5th string. It is important not to move the hand while the index finger moves up and down. Resting the thumb on a bass string helps to keep the hand still. It also prevents the accidental sounding of one or more bass strings that are not used in certain chords.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarantella

Youtube


- page 49 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) 2 VILLANOS
2 Villanos: While the index finger is playing the strums, the thumb rests on the 5th string. Except when the chord of A major is being played, where the thumb rests on the 6th string.

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 80 number 25 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
- page 86 6/ Improvise using only 6 notes (D E G A B C) for 20'.
- page 35 Johann-Philipp KRIEGER (1652-1735) MENUET
- page 43 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA TARENTELA



Good luck!


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

Hi, Classmates,
Here is the music sheet breakdown for this month study assignments.

Exam qualifying assignments are,
1.LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
2.Improvise using only 6 notes (D E G A B C) for 20'.
3.KRIEGER MENUET
4.LA TARENTELA

a.SLURS page 80 #25
Slurs,hammer on,pull-off
Definition by wiki
SLURS: Indicates to play two or more notes in one physical stroke, one uninterrupted breath, or (on instruments with neither breath nor bow) connected into a phrase as if played in a single breath. In certain contexts, a slur may only indicate to play the notes legato. In this case, rearticulation is permitted.
Slurs and ties are similar in appearance. A tie is distinguishable because it always joins exactly two immediately adjacent notes of the same pitch, whereas a slur may join any number of notes of varying pitches.

13. Articulation.
CHORD definition
In music, a guitar chord is a set of notes played on a guitar. A chord's notes are often played simultaneously, but they can be played sequentially in an arpeggio.Wiki :)
I will write more about chords.
Chords are based on 3rd interval.Two kind of thirds , Major 3rd(interval of 4 half steps) and Minor 3rd(interval of 3 half steps).
Let's start by stacking 2 thirds on the first note (1, also called root) of the C major scale
C E G
The result is a C major triad (triad is a chord that contains 3 notes)
From note C to E is Major 3rd
From note E to G is a minor 3rd

Minor chord construction
Now let's stack 2 thirds on top of the second note (2) of the C major scale
D F A or 1 b3 5 (b3 mean third degree flat )
Result of D minor triad
From D to F is a minor third
From F to A is a major third
first minor third,then major third
formula 1 b3 5
Types
Major Chord
Minor Chord
Dim chord
Augmented Chord
Diatonic chords

Anybody knows what the dash lines in the Minuet piece on page 35 mean?
On page 4 there are similar dash lines (without the opening and close brackets) to "indicate that the fingers of the left hand are not lifted but remain in place on the fingerboard". But this would not make sense here. For example in measure 14, the first two notes are open (no left hand finger involved), and for the next high G note, 4 has to move so 1 can fret the F note.

Hi,Chu Bun,
Hemiola,
Marko explain it nicely at archive your query about dashed lines at M6,7,14,15,22,23.
If you continue reading you will find that left hand fingers keep placed of similar pitched notes. :)

Zafar,

Checked the later part of my previous post. I already pointed out the definition for a dash line, but it doesn't seem to apply here.

Hi, Classmates,Chu Bun,Marko,
Thanks Marko,
In this Youtube video,teacher explains rhythmic displacement of 2:3 and 3:4 with the help of paper and beat lines etc.On our forum students discuss hemiola subject in forum archive. :)
Worth watching.There are many more videos explaining the subject mostly piano but there are guitar demonstrations too.
Visit here
//youtube.com/watch?v=DysE6wh6zRQ//

I watched another video.Although not familiar with the terminalogy used.It clearly shows the concept we try to understand about 3:4 displacement used in hemiola.I personally like this video, how to perform ratios.

I thought the lines have something to do with fingering, and the thread seems to be about rhythm so I didn't read it at first. But after looking closely, your definition makes sense now. Thanks.

Hi, Classmates,
The hemiola discussion may confuse some members.
I'm posting two images to show difference between two types of dashed lines used in music sheet.
D02 music sheet volume 2 page 4,dashed lines are placed between similar pitched notes.These dashed lines are straight connecting two notes.You can read the meaning shown in the image. :)

I'm posting image 2 taken from this month study assignment "KRIEGER MENUET" measure 6 and 7.Bracket dashed lines placed on top of high string.These lines indicate the hemiola rhythmic displacement of 3:4 ratio.Marko please correct me if anything I said need any correction.

Hi, Kushtrim Avdiu,
All the links above my study assignment video are about Hemiola rhythmic displacement concept.I'll search to find more basic lesson to understand this concept.Just read and watch meantime from the links.
