It's actually B major (D# on the 3rd string). You could also play the first chord in 9th position, omitting the middle A. Depending on what's coming in the next measure, you could play the last chord in 4th or even 1st position. I think I would practice playing the last chord as written. After several repetitions, it's not that difficult and this sort of shift comes up fairly often. Keep the fourth finger down as a guide finger. Practice the measures slowly but at a constant tempo and gradually increase the speed.
I totally agree there Dave.From what I have seen that E maj7 on II or VII position is usually 1/2 Bar II and Full Bar VII.That G# is most unusual if not quiteDavid_Norton wrote: ↑Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:23 pmYou can thin down some of those chords by removing duplicate internal octaves. For example, there are three A's in that first chord. Leave the bass one for sure, but either of the other A notes could be deleted without a problem. In the second circled chord, the G# on 4 could be deleted as well.
It's well established that "what Segovia played/recorded" often differed widely from what was published in his editions. So there's no need to be concerned about "Violating The Composer's [Sacrosanct] Intentions" by making these sorts of modifications.
