D05 Classical guitar lesson 09

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:12 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D05.
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.



Now we are going to work on a series of exercises:
- page 151 Francisco Tàrrega (1852-1909) Estudio en re mayor n°99, Estudio en la mayor n°100.
Here is a golden opportunity to practise position changes (moving the left hand up and down the fingerboard) and at the same time to acquire a new competency in playing the higher notes.

Youtube



Today we'll look at 4 pieces.
- page 30 Robert Johnson (1542-1603) Alman VII
Two sections oppose and respond to one another. The first is an ascending section, from the beginning of the piece to the 3rd eighth note (quaver) of bar 4. It is an almost martial section, very dynamic, and requires a lot of energy.
The second section leads us back from the dominant (E) to the tonic (A). This is a much more flowing section, which is played legato without using much energy, letting oneself be carried along on the descent from the dynamic that was created earlier with the first section.
This succession of surges and falls continues in the same way right to the end.

Youtube



- page 38 Gaspar Sanz (1640-1710) Canarios En Sol Majeur
Each 4-bar section is itself divided into 2 phrases of 2 bars each. These two 2-bar phrases form a dialogue with one another.
Begin your practice by seeking out all the sensations which will help you to recognize these two phrases as "responding to one another". Like question and answer, or like affirmation and challenge. The key to the canario is to be found in this relationship between two complementary phrases. The two phrases may sometimes be complementary in an obvious way, and sometimes in a more subtle way.

Youtube



- page 98 Américo Jacomino (1889-1928) Arrependida
After a short introduction of 4 bars, each 8-bar section is itself divided into two phrases of 4 bars each. These two 4-bar phrases form a dialogue with one another.
Begin your practice by seeking out all the sensations which will help you to recognize these two phrases as "responding to one another". Like question and answer, or like affirmation and challenge. The key to the Arrependida is to be found in this relationship between two complementary phrases.

Youtube



Julio Sagreras (1879-1942) Lecciones III n°23
Each 8-bar section is itself divided into two phrases of 4 bars each. These two 4-bar phrases form a dialogue with one another.
Begin your practice by seeking out all the sensations which will help you to recognize these two phrases as "responding to one another". The key to this Ranchera is to be found in this relationship between two complementary phrases.

Youtube








I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
- page 98 Américo Jacomino (1889-1928) Arrependida




Good luck!


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

Hello students. I think I'm going to sit this one out for now. The pieces don't speak to me so much. I am still working of Amando Sobre O Mar. and Sons De Carillhoes. Which by the way goes well with ASOM in performance I think. I don't think I've skipped a lesson in a while if ever. I may read through the pieces a bit and change my mind this summer.

Good luck with the exam practice.

I find this lesson quite interesting; different styles, but quite some work; I did find an original recording of Arrependida on the web, which is less academic from what we can hear now, and will try to play it that way, between a few "sons"

Thanks Angela
I hear the errors on the difficult M42/43 and M58/59, missed both in the recording and reworking, trying alternate fingering

the course is quieter with the Pernambuco coming :D

:bravo: Vincent! Beautifully played.

It is quiet here. I am expecting some amazing performances from our colleagues on the final exam!

I love how you played this piece. This piece is beautiful in places but the portamento is a bit overdone to my taste. I haven't attempted any of the pieces this month. I am resting my fingers after coming down with a bit of trigger finger in the right hand. It hasn't hampered my playing much.

Good luck Vincent, Angela, Esteban, and others. I look forward to hearing your performances this weekend!!

Thanks Rick, the portamento is exaggerated on purpose, to get closer to an original recording from Jacomino, with an interpretation that is less classical, but makes this piece interesting, at least to my ears.
Looking forward for this weekend's recordings.

Oh yes of course. I did not mean it as a critique of your performance but if the piece, just not my cup of tea. And you did it very well indeed.

Nice play Angela, you have a good speed :)
I like the way you have the melody singing. Maybe put attention on the bass, some are missing (M23/25)
Sometimes the rhythm is strange (M35 or M126) too slow, and as for us all; there are difficult parts M42/23; M121, etc

Thank you vicent
