D02 Classical guitar lesson 09

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Apr 27, 2016 8:27 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 81 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.
Descending slurs are produced by pulling the string with a left hand finger (and letting it snap off the fingertip). The more parallel this movement is to the plane of the fingerboard (i.e. towards the adjacent string where there is one), the more volume is obtained.

Youtube


- page 82 numéro 35 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) ARPÈGES - ARPEGGI - ARPEGGIOS - ARPEGIOS
In these arpeggios, only your fingers move, be sure to keep your right hand in the same position.

Youtube



Next we'll work on four pieces :
- page 18 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) QUATRE ACCORDS
Improvise different patterns of arpeggio and different patterns of accompaniment while keeping strictly to the time signature, key and chords indicated.

Youtube


- page 61 José FERRER Y ESTEVE (1835-1916) EJERCICIO N°6
Play the melody in the bass with as much legato as possible (without breaks between the notes). Damp the notes of the accompaniment, by placing your fingers on the strings, where indicated by the rests. Try out other fingerings if, in bar 7, you find the indicated fingering difficult for playing the C# and the G. I recommend that you experiment first with the various possible fingerings, (fingers 1 and 2) (fingers 1 and 3) (fingers 1 and 4) (fingers 2 and 3) (fingers 2 and 4) (fingers 3 and 4) until you finally settle on the one that allows you to obtain the best result.

Youtube


- page 63 ANONYME A CANOA VIROU
In order to mark the beat yourself, you need to count the smallest rhythmic values out loud as you play, as indicated on the score: "1 e 2 e 3 e 4 e" ("1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and" in English)

Youtube


- page 64 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) LEÇON XV opus 60

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 18 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) QUATRE ACCORDS
- page 61 José FERRER Y ESTEVE (1835-1916) EJERCICIO N°6

Good luck!


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

Hi,Colin,
Better to ask Moderator.
It is not allowed to post an exam piece before the exam date.I read it in archive and in one of such incident the moderator was not happy.

Perhaps not in the exam area, but we are asked to post it here after 1 week!

Yes, posting the piece here is ok. It only becomes the "exam submission" once it is posted into the exam topic, and that may only be done during the exam period. The judges will grade your performance based on the recording posted at the exam topic, not the one posted here.

Hi, Angela Zhao,
Very Well done in these two study assignments.
I listen and watched it several times.No left hand fingers flyaway.Good improvement.
Good tempo,rhythm,melody.
Good audio,video,lighting,posture.Good left hand right hand coordination.
For exam piece,when you record and submit at Spanish forum,you will have to introduce yourself in front of a microphone by saying your full name along with your exam piece together in one sitting.

Hi Zafar

Thank you watch my video,and give me comment. thank you give me the video about the spider left hand,let me know the correct left hand style.
I still need more practice to improve it.

For the exam, I have made the video, but I haven't introduced my name by microphone, I made a screen script to introduce my full name, is it ok? Do I need redo it?

Thank you very much!
Best regards

Hi,Angela Zhao,
Better to ask the moderator for clarification if it is permissible to just add text as introduction to qualify as complete exam piece.

Hi Angela,

I'm afraid you will need to redo it, introducing yourself by saying your full name at the beginning. Sorry about that.

Please tell me you have been playing for a long long time, lessons from famous guitarists etc.
Looking at this and your other posts in D03 etc I feel like I'm standing still. I've managed to get the exam piece up to near speed, but without any musicality.
Well done

Hello Colin
Thank you watch my video.
Before I registered in this forum, I just study by myself, As you know, without teacher you almost can't get any progress.you can get knowledge just from internet, or from other ways.
I'm lucky in the forum, the teachers and the classmates here can give you lots of help.
Actually, I feel I get some improve since I have studied here.
The D01 and D02 are the basic training, I think they are very improtant, I still need more practice.
You can watch the teacher's video, even a very simple songs ,the teacher can show us lots of musicality, I think we can watch and thinking, notice every details the teacher do, also compare with your video,you can find lots of problem.

For the D03 exam, thank one of my classmate told me to notice the damp, first I havn't done damp, but you can watch the teacher's video, you can get it.
Hope you can finish your exam piece with good luck! :D

Regards
