D02 Classical guitar lesson 07

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Tue Feb 28, 2017 4:35 pm

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 79 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. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.
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. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.

- page 85-86 - Improvisation
Improvisation work - D02
These exercises in improvisation are to be done several times a week, for several months.
Vary the volume (mf, pp, ff, p ...), timbres and rhythms. Never play the same thing twice, because it would cease to be improvisation, and would become composition.
1/ improvise on a single note (A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube



2/ improvise using only two notes (G - A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube



3/ improvise using only three notes (G - A - B) for 20 seconds

Youtube


Youtube



4/ improvise using only four notes (D - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.

5/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of DANSE D'AVILA, D02, page 7, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube



6/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of OH! SUSANNA, D02, page 8, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube




Next, we will be working on 3 pieces with a phrase structure of 8 bars.

- page 52 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) LEÇON VIII opus 60
- page 53 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) LEÇON IX opus 60

I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
- page 38 Mauro GIULIANI (1781-1829) ÉCOSSAISE N°10 opus 33
- 4/ improvise using only four notes (D - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.
- I ask every one of the students to take part in at least one of the musical games. If the games proposed seem too difficult for you, it is up to you to suggest new ones, adapted to your level and designed with your own rules.



Good luck!


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

Let the games begin...

From the Delcamp games page:
D02 X players, 4 notes, 3 days, 1 voice
"D02" means that the game is second year level.
"X players" means that the work is to be constructed by X players.*
"4 notes" means that each player invents a sequence of 4 notes.
The work is under construction for 2 days for each player(X). Example, 2 player=4 days 6 participants=12 days*
"1 voice" means that the collective work is monophonic.
The rhythm is free and modifiable.
The first player records a sequence of 4 notes, the second player repeats what his predecessor played and completes his phrase by adding another sequence of 4 notes to it. In his turn, the first player repeats what the previous player played and adds another 4 notes. At the end of 3 days, one of the players finishes off the collective work with a concluding phrase and indicates in his post that the work is completed. If a contribution does not fit the specifications, the other player can ignore it or adopt it, but it is advisable to reject contributions that are above the level proposed and which would put the other player in difficulty.

Feel free to change the time signature. If you do we'll use my first four notes as the pickup measure.

*These lines have been changed from the original. X=variable number of players.

Hi Sal
We are supposed to post the games in the games section viewforum.php?f=109 rather than run them in this thread. You should be able to open up a new topic and use the title format shown.
Have fun
Colin

Thanks Colin,

I wasn't clear how the games were supposed to work. I just jumped in. The game has been posted in the games forum hereviewtopic.php?f=109&t=111114

It looks like Jonathan will be giving us measure number 2. Is that right Jonathan? According to the rules we are supposed to announce our intentions to post the next four notes so that others don't work on the same measure needlessly.

Ligado Question:
Please will someone clarify, and help me to understand the possible and best choice for damping in the Ligado exercises? Thanks in advance for your attention.

Not as polished as I would like. I may revisit this later.

Hello. Here are my two recordings. I need to think more about the rhythm and not just the notes when I improvise. I will work on that. There's a few flubs in Ecossaise, but if I wait for it to be perfect, I will never get it posted. :)
