However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".

This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.

As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

Albeniz Sevilla Timing

Hey guys.
I'm currently learning Sevilla by Albeniz, with a mind to performing it at a work do sometime towards the end of February. Hopefully I can get it down and ready by then! (Someone is orgainising an night where we each do something, music, stand up, dance etc..)

I would just like you opinion on a part. When it goes to the Eb, there is a large jump between frets and back which I find hard to do and keep the pace up. Do you think the way it's played detracts too much, in terms of slowing the pace?

P.S. in the vid you can see me getting a bit frustrated as I hit the 4th string during the 16th notes, so excuse my shaking of head ;) Though it did amuse me when I watched it back!

Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks

hi

I just found this last night: search Youtube for "masterclass bream granada" - the students are playing Granada and Sevilla and Bream is really giving excellent ideas on how to play this.
Best regards,
Malan

So many of us just listen to guitarists playing Albeniz, it is easy to forget he originally wrote for piano. I strongly suggest going over to Youtube and saturating yourself with the piano renditions (Laroccha is my favorite), then maybe some of the orchestra arrangements, and I guarantee you will come away with a very different sense of the piece. All the best, Bill

Thanks Goose and Bill. I watched the masterclass, it's really good. Bream is a legend ;) Yeah, now I've finished learning the whole piece, I think your idea about watching the piano versions is a great one. I'm currently learning Cadiz, so I'm going to head off and listen to some piano interpretations =]

Cheers

Bill

These are great pieces which will be with your for the rest of your playing life! Cadiz is another one of those rhythmic, lyrical pieces with great harmonies. Originally it was written in D, but most of us play it in A. The Tarrega transcription however is in D. It's all good
