[Help] Carulli method

Post by Jinzl » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:07 am

Hi,

So this is my story. A couple of years ago I attended to a classical guitar class and finished the first chapter in Carulli Method. Then I had to get to the hospital for nearly a year and stop playing since then.

Now I want to start again but couldn't make contact with my old teacher anymore. then I tried to do it by myself and get stuck immediately at the beginning of chapter 2 (in the slide technique - I am not sure if I name it right, because my material doesn't written in English). I tried to google it but all the tutorials are only for chapter 1, likes this one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3cwwCr ... OvxNGxYizA

So I am here, hope to have someone willing to help with this the technique or even better, make a video to demostrate what should I do.
I know it's an over-demand, but please help. I could'nt find any other way and this is the last option I could think about.

I also post images of the lesson just in case.

Thank you so much for reading this and spending time to help me.

Glissez --> you go from one string to the other.

Thank you all for the respond. But I am seem to be so dump on this. for example, on the first line. note 13-14, how could that be possible? and likes Marieh, how could be possible to go from one string to the other?

Thanh you all again and please appologize for my silly questions.

This notation confuses me also. It doesn't seem to be consistent.

Yes its confusing - and unnecessary: just play what's written without the extra stuff, that's just a historical thing relating to a specific technique that need not worry you at all.
Finding a more modern tutor system might be good idea too!

Just a note, Carulli would sometimes use the "m" finger on the downbeat because it was longer (and supposedly louder). This practice never gained acceptance in the literature and can be disregarded in favor of a more modern fingering.

There is a PDF on imslp available that has the instructions in 3 languages: German, French and English.

As Marieh explained vibration means here "hammer the finger on the fret so it vibrates" and "glissez" means the right hand thumb to slide from one string to the next string.

Hi, Jinzl
I think the problem is the terminology b/c english is not your native language. Try some keywords such as slurs, hammer on, pull off and paste them on Youtube's search !
Btw, Segovia' slur exercise is great to start with!
