Tárrega, Francisco - Lagrima - Video

Post by RenaissanceStrings » Sat Mar 10, 2018 12:52 am

Hi all, 
I have been studying classical guitar for a little over a year now. In my entire life, I have never been as passionate as I am about this beautiful instrument, it's musical compositions and everything which embodies it. Taking that into account, I started a channel to get share what I have learnt and hope that it can bring you joy. This is a recording of Tarrega's Lagrima. Please feel free to share. Thank you and all the best :)

Lovely tone. For one year of playing I reckon this is surprisingly good. I could relax and enjoy it except for the rhythm - but best to hit the notes than rush. Is that G in the melody on the last cadence of the middle section correct?

Great work indeed. I'm very impressed by your playing quality, considering you haven't played for that long. As mentioned above, you especially have managed to develop a great tone quality very quickly. So definitely keep it up, and I see you have also been rightly rewarded for your efforts by a growing YT-channel.
If there's one thing I'd recommend, however, it might be widening your repertoire a bit. What you've published so far is mainly romantic music (and a lot of Tarrega), and while this music is great, and probably my favorite musical era for guitar, don't neglect earlier composers. Mainly I think you should absolutely check out Sor if you haven't already, and some Bach transcriptions. It's beneficial both musically and technically.

Thank you for your support and kind words. I still have a lot to learn but I have found that over the last six months I have improved a lot faster than my first year. I have been thoroughly enjoying this journey and promoting the classical guitar to anyone who is interested. In relevance to expanding my repertoire, I completely I agree. I am currently nearing the end of Bach's first cello suite (prelude) and I have also learnt a few pieces by Barrios, Sor and Pachelbel. I found the musicality particularly challenging on Bach's cello suite (which was expected) but with the help of master classes on youtube, I think it is not so bad now.

I thank you guys again for your insight and look forward to speaking to you again.
