The way I understand it, it's a rhythmic figure. If you look at measures from 1 to 5, in each of these, the rhythm goes like this "boom cha cha" (more or less). However, in measure 6 and 7, instead of "boom cha cha/boom cha cha" (2 groups of 3 notes), the figure changes to "boom cha/boom cha/boom cha" (3 groups of 2 beats). Basically, you play triple time as if it is duple time. Personally, I don't think I have that level of control over rhythm/dynamic, so it's nice to know but I simply ignore those markings.

You are fast! Just a few observations.

LA TARENTELA: in the second pass, it seems the rest at the beginning was not accounted for. There was hesitations here and there so I'm not quite sure, but something sounds out of beat to me.

KRIEGER MENUET: It seems the base D note in measure 5 was play 1/8 too late. The dot after the A note counted toward the C note in the treble line not the D in the base line which should be right on the second beat for that measure.

Hi Zafar, that's a really interesting improvisation! Good job!
I only have concerns about your right hand technique: it looks like your wrist is placed on the soundboard which makes it very difficult to control which strings are plucked.

Here is my 1/4 of the submission:
- page 35 Johann-Philipp KRIEGER (1652-1735) MENUET

Youtube

Still some mistakes, but it was enough tries and I gave up.

Hi, Andrei Puhach,
Well done,
Very pleasant,nice performance of KRIEGER MENUET.
Good tempo,rhythm,melody.
Good audio,video lighting,posture.Good left hand right hand coordination.

Andrei,
Thanks for watching and commenting about my improvisation study assignment.
It was performed just in one go,no thinking,no planning.Just hold the guitar,look for notes in the music sheet and started playing.
Regarding right hand wrist,I will try to relax myself. Looking at my video,Seems I'm cramped while sitting and adjusting towards camera. :)

My submissions for this month. On the Menuet piece there are 3 places (measures 7, 15, 23) I could not figure out what monsieur Delcamp did. It sounded like hammer on/pull of. But on the clip apparently monsieur Delcamp's fretting fingers did not move. It seems he did it by quickly playing/muting 2 strings with his plucking hand.

A little bit raggy, but I like the piece and will practice and repost.

This one is hard, not sure I've got the rhythm, again more practice

I like it, very folk ethereal.

Sounds a lot smoother than mine and fewer mistakes :(

All excellent.
I'm going to have a look at the variations in Menuet as there is time before exam piece is posted. I'll let you know if I figure them out.

Back to practice

Collin,

Thank you for your comments. About your submissions, good effort. Everything is there, just need more practice to get a more even tempo. For the La Tarentela piece, I find it's easier to listen to the prof's clip for a number of times to get the chords and rhythm then play by ear, than to follow the score sheet and do the un deux trois.

Hi Angela, more observations (in addition to Chu's):
1. Slurs: I think it is very important to control the duration of every note and follow the meter in this exercise.
2. Menuet: wow, there are extra ornamentations not specified in the scores :)

Hi Bert, your Tarentela is fast, but the last chords are wrong: you keep playing E in the last measure, but it should be Am. Also, the Dm and E measures do not seem to follow the required rhythmic pattern (but I might be wrong).

Hi Chu, great work as always.
Slurs are great, the rhythm is there, all sounds are clear.
That's cool that you tried to follow Professor's way of playing Menuet instead of blindly following the scores (as I did) :) But again, bass and trebles are asynchronous sometimes...
Tarentela is a bit slow but absolutely correct :)
