Am I allowed to post a Mr.Delcamp provided music sheet breakdown here?
Hi Zafar,

I don't see any problem with that, as long as you only post the breakdown, not the sheet itself.

Hi,Classmates,
Here is a Gaspar SANZ VILLANOS music sheet breakdown.

1.Time Signature: 4/4
2.Tempo:120
3.Strokes: Not defined
4.Measures:30
5.Phrases: Not defined
6.Dampings:Yes, 8
7.Repeats: Yes,Measure 1 to 5,measure 6 to 20,measure 21 to 25,measure 26 to 30
8.Special effects: No.
9."#" symbol: Yes,C#,F#,G# It is a "A maj" Scale
11.Lyrics: No
12.Rest:Yes,half note,m1,3,6,10,12,17,28 (1/8 note m7),(Quarter note m26)
13. Articulation.
14.Improvisation.
15.Ornament: Trill
Definition: Trill
"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
16.Vibrato:Yes
Definition:"vibrato
Vibrating (i.e. a more or less rapidly repeated slight variation in the pitch of a note, used as a means of expression). Often confused with tremolo, which refers either to a similar variation in the volume of a note, or to rapid repetition of a single note."wiki
17.Mordent:Yes,Inverted
Definition:
"Mordent (inverted),Also called "mordent lower"
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

How to create "A major Scale"?
Formula: W-W-H-W-W-W-H
W=whole=two frets
H=half=single fret
Let's write down "A" and remaining letters after "A"
A to B = W
B to C#=W
C# to D=H
D to E=W
E to F#=W
F# to G#=W
G# to A=H
A major Scale is:A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G#, three sharps
I'm working to post three images shown in the music sheet. :)

For, Vibrato,this lesson is helpful.

For, Trill this long useful lesson worth watching.

For, mordent(Inverted),here is a symbol and its discussion on our Delcamp forum.

Hi, Classmates,
While practicing doing Barre with my left Index finger resulting in 80% of muting,Buzz and other undesired effects heard.
I searched the Delcamp Forum to know if any technical discussion about Barre technique.I found D03 Lesson 9,Mr Delcamp is explaining, how to practice the Barre with two images.
Link here
viewtopic.php?f=118&t=95388
I found a youtube video explaining Barre technique.
Visit here
----://---.youtube.com/watch?v=vzYfdYtoFf4
Following his technique and Mr.Delcamp advice,I'm able to Barre with my left hand index finger reducing muting and buzzing sound to 10%.
I took with my camera two images to show the correct finger setup, improves the Barre result. :)
I will not be held responsible for overarching or any kind of injury. :)

Here is an image showing, how Barre is notated in music sheet.

I'm curious about the lessons.

Hi Roberto, and welcome!

You can find out more about the lessons from the FAQs here. If you are thinking of joining in, I would suggest you wait until September when the next session starts, and then there will be plenty of other students to share feedback with. When you do decide to register, you should read the first post in the registration topic here and fulfil the conditions specified there before posting a request for registration on the end of that same topic.

As I said, it isn't really worth doing that until September, because you'll only have to register again then anyway. In the meantime if you're happy to prepare by looking through the old lessons here without submitting your own recordings, you can do that without needing to register.
