Here's a fingering version that incorporates some of your ideas, but no open B string. -- Edwardzinc1024 wrote:The final 3 measures of Allegro Solemne (before the final two measures of simple block chords, so actually measures 1-3 of the final 5 measures...) are fingered rather "interestingly" in the Delcamp version.
I in turn made up my own "interesting" fingering that also, like the Delcamp version, attempted to keep using the open 2nd string for the B. Lots of cross fingering with the right hand...complicated.
My instructor pretty much gagged over this and pointed out how it's really quite simple, just three different Bm chord positions, first the lower part of a Gm chord shape barring the 4th fret (and using 4 on the 2nd string to play the D), then an Em chord shape barring on the 7th fret, and finally a Cm shape (actually a between Em and Cm shape, not a shape in the "CAGED" system technically) on the 10th-12th frets. So much easier and pretty straightforward.
With this approach, they are simple arpeggios (except for catching that one D with 4 early on), and there's little risk of fouling up.
Curious if others have any issues with this approach, or if it's actually the "standard" for those measures?
I love playing this piece...got it fully in my head how, working on getting my right hand fully planting and stable.
[/quote]I don't view this as a question of right/wrong, just some interesting choices to mess around with in working on the piece.
According to the arrangements I have James there are no melodic accents on the high notes or anywhere else in the final Bm section ,as there are in the previous bars.Be that as it may, I have already explained why I choose to play the accepted written version and If I interpret that as the composers intention then that in all fairness is my choice.I see nothing to defend here .My parts are clearly written and I am happy that way .If someone else chooses an alternative option ,then so be it.I think you're over thinking this and reading too much into Barrios's intentions. In this section, as long as the highest note of each arpeggio is not disturbed by a particular fingering-which would disturb the melodic ascent, then the chord notes can be sustained in a number of ways without hurting the climatic declaration of the ending Bm's.[/
