Sorry, maybe rude is not exactly the English word, he is certainly not very refined because I don't see too much care with interpreation subtleties and atticulation details and so on. If the point on fingering is about interpretation, details are important, I think. My conclusion on being rude musically was based on some other videos I've checked, like the prelude 1006 and some live performances, not only this one. Pepe Romero, who also has a powerful touch, is by far more refined, IMO, despite he still has a flamencoish accent in several of his interpretations (like when playing Giuliani).ronjazz wrote:Really, rude? I think he's an assertive player who can be heard in the largest halls. He is, after all, demonstrating technique, and the microphone is directly in front of the guitar.
I think he is trying to explain preparation or planting with regards to the villa-Lobos etude and not only does it help with control and accuracy but left hand shifts eliminating the odd queak here and there.Ramon Amira wrote:I did not understand anything that he said - not his english nor his ideas. Could someone please very clearly and in detail explain what he is trying to convey. I seem to get the impression that he was speaking about a different pattern for arpeggios, but I just don't know. Thanks.
He doesn't offer a new way of fingering all of villa lobos.. Only one bar, to demonstrate his point. I don't see the point of this post tho? Even though he speaks fast and all, he does explain everything in the video. In villa lobos on the bar where he has the E major with Gsharp bass to, if I remember right, B minor barre chord on the 7th fret, he changes his righthand pattern descending, uses the open strings and 7 fret in order to arrive at the B minor without any string squaeks. The same concept in the barrios. As others have pointed out he does also talk a lot about planting and preparation, but it isn't related to this point.Ramon Amira wrote:Comments on the video re: Villa Lobos
