Oops. I was trying to be funny and failed miserably. I apologize. I meant no offense.Jules Wilkins wrote: ↑Fri Mar 02, 2018 2:59 amI am not sure what that means.
Other than the fact that I have put considerable extra "rests" towards the end as I try to remember where my fingers need to go next, purely a consequence of posting prior to taking the time required to learn the section well, when I listen to this I cannot help but feel pleased with the result. You are not writing your sections the way I would have any more than I am writing mine the way you would have and at first I even found myself questioning some of your choices, and yet for a first effort at a joint composition I think we are doing a fine job indeed and when I play it through and listen to my posting I not only understand but I fully approve of the choices I initially questioned. Interesting exercise and I am looking forward to your final submission.
I did leave you with a bit of a challenge as you have the task of leading the listener back into the key of Am. I haven't tried this myself (it is after all your measure) but I suspect it may be a bit tricky. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Perhaps I should apologize for the difficulty this piece is proving to be, but I won't. Firstly, it was not my intention...it just somehow went in that direction...and secondly it may have stretched you (and me) but I think as a learning experience we are both the better for it.
As I understand the last measure you generated, I must hold those second voice notes for two counts each, while hitting the 1st voice notes. The second portion, involving E is the portion I was referring to.
In playing this piece tonight I decided to modify my submission. The more I played it the more I didn't like it. I also found I had created something impossible to play ( for me anyway ). My second voice notes were of the wrong duration, so I corrected that.
Your fingering suggestion on my 6th measure was a good idea by the way. I'm working to relearn it and hope to post tomorrow.
