Thank you for this! This exactly what Denis Azabagic shows in his master class (search in Youtube 'Denis Azabagic teaches Allegro solemne from La Catedral by Agustin Barrios Mangore', starts from 21:40).Fredonia_Guitar_11 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 24, 2011 4:11 pm
This is a popular fingering for this passage, but has a lot of shifts. While a good fingering I personally like incorporating as many open strings as possible to create "gaps" for the LH to shift positions. It gives a little more time and makes the passage much more manageable. A lot of shifts while doable, is a risky fingering to me. That's why I agree with the idea of open strings. Zinc, could you post a version of your fingering?
Here is the fingering I use:
Do you see the "gaps" right before shifts? It gives time to shift while you playing the open string. Also, notice the use of guide fingers which also gives something to ease the passage some. Hope this helps!
I find this fingering way more comfortable than the standard one.
