D03 Classical guitar lesson 06

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Mon Jan 30, 2017 4:57 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D03.
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.




Today, we're going to work on a series of exercises.
- page 91 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LEGATO STACCATO
- page 92 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GLISSANDO
- pages 96-97 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MORDANTS ET TRILLES
:idea: :arrow: Level D02-D08, Ornaments in baroque music
When changes of position are needed, you will be using the "position shift" technique. Position I is the left hand position where the index finger (1) is placed behind the 1st fret, position V is the hand position where the index (1) is placed behind the fifth fret, etc. The position shift involves moving the left hand along the neck, from position to position, from fret to fret. In the scales we're looking at today, notice that my first finger never leaves the first string, I use it as a guide for my hand. Position shifts are shown by oblique lines linking two fingering indications given for the same finger.
The following videos are for numbers 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 37, 38, 39 and 40. Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.

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:

Good luck!

Hi,Gentlemen,
This month music sheet breakdown.

- page 97 numéro 39 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MORDENTS ET TRILLES
- page 19 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA MIÑONA DE CATALUÑA


a. page 97 numéro 39 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MORDANTS ET TRILLES
It is in the category of Ornaments

Definition Mordents: "Upper mordent
Rapidly play the principal note, the next higher note (according to key signature) then return to the principal note for the remaining duration. In most music, the mordent begins on the auxiliary note, and the alternation between the two notes may be extended. In hand bells, this symbol is a "shake" and indicates the rapid shaking of the bells for the duration of the note.

Lower mordent (inverted)
Rapidly play the principal note, the note below it, then return to the principal note for the remaining duration. In much music, the mordent begins on the auxiliary note, and the alternation between the two notes may be extended."wiki.
Mordent wiki link
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mordent

Trill definition: "A rapid alternation between the specified note and the next higher note (according to key signature) within its duration, also called a "shake". When followed by a wavy horizontal line, this symbol indicates an extended, or running, trill. Trills can begin on either the specified root note or the upper auxiliary note, though the latter is more prevalent in modern performances.[citation needed] In percussion notation, a trill is sometimes used to indicate a tremolo (q.v.)."wiki

I have a question gang. Are there any advantages in alternating the fretting fingers when doing a trill? For example,
3131 (or 4141) pull off/hammer on/pull off using the same finger 3 (or 4)
instead of
3141 pull off with 3 then hammer on/pull off using 4

I find it easier to use the 1st method. I'm practicing the 2nd as I suspect there is an advantage at speed, but I'm finding with 3141 my 4 isn't quite as strong so the hammer on doesn't come through. 2131 works ok, so I think I need to develop the strength.

I am with Colin, it seems the natural finger movement is 2121. I need to slow down and think about it to do 2131.

After some practice I'm fine with both, but still think using the same finger is simpler.
I'm having major problems with trilling and damping together. I guess multitasking is not my forte, cannot focus on both left and right hands at the same time.

Hi Chu - I agree with the damping combined with trilling. Doing a rest stroke with the thumb while trilling is difficult.

I wonder why there is no explanation at all how to play staccato when crossing strings (page 93 n19 FA Majeur for example). Technique is apparently very different than playing a regular scale. At least one-two sentences would be good enough :(
In particular I don't understand how to mute note #2 G when playing the scale with 'i' and 'm' (starting from 'i' as show in the video).

You mute the string by placing a right hand finger on it as soon as you have played it. The finger to use for muting depends on which note follows after the one to be muted. If the next note is played on the same string, use for muting the same finger you're going to use to play the next note, by just placing it on the string earlier than you normally would. If the next note is played on a different string, use for muting the same finger you played the note with. In the video G is both played and muted with m finger.

Marko, thank you for a good explanation! I watched the video multiple times (including at 0.5 rate) but still did not see how it was done...
Now it is very clear from your words.

I think you have missed the beginning of the Cataluna. The trills sound ok, see whether they survive at speed :(

Hi Ed, I think the trills are great indeed (I'm struggling to produce consistent sounds), but the piece is not complete :(

It's really difficult to produce consistent sound. The 6/8 time doesn't help either. So far all my attempts are awful. Compared to monsieur Delcamp's clip, they sound like a totally different piece!
