D02 Classical guitar lesson 07

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Mar 02, 2016 8:51 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D02.
If you are new to the course, please read this message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.




First we will study some technical exercises from volume D02.
- page 79 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
Ascending slurs are produced by striking (hammering down on) the string with a left hand finger. The faster and more decisive this movement is, the more volume is obtained. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.
Descending slurs are produced by pulling the string with a left hand finger (and letting it snap off the fingertip). The more parallel this movement is to the plane of the fingerboard (i.e. towards the adjacent string where there is one), the more volume is obtained. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.

Youtube




- page 85-86 - Improvisation
Improvisation work - D02
These exercises in improvisation are to be done several times a week, for several months.
Vary the volume (mf, pp, ff, p ...), timbres and rhythms. Never play the same thing twice, because it would cease to be improvisation, and would become composition.
1/ improvise on a single note (A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube



2/ improvise using only two notes (G - A) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube



3/ improvise using only three notes (G - A - B) for 20 seconds

Youtube


Youtube



4/ improvise using only four notes (D - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.

Youtube


Youtube



5/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of DANSE D'AVILA, D02, page 7, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube



6/ improvise a melody upon the bass-line of OH! SUSANNA, D02, page 8, using only these 7 notes (G# A B C# D E F#).

Youtube




Next, we will be working on 3 pieces with a phrase structure of 8 bars.
- page 38 Mauro GIULIANI (1781-1829) ÉCOSSAISE N°10 opus 33
- page 52 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) LEÇON VIII opus 60
- page 53 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) LEÇON IX opus 60

Youtube



I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
- page 38 Mauro GIULIANI (1781-1829) ÉCOSSAISE N°10 opus 33
- 4/ improvise using only four notes (D - G - A - B) for 20 seconds.
- I ask every one of the students to take part in at least one of the musical games. If the games proposed seem too difficult for you, it is up to you to suggest new ones, adapted to your level and designed with your own rules.



Good luck!


I thank Geoff (GeoffB) who has helped in the translation of my lessons into English.

Definition by wiki
SLURS: Indicates to play two or more notes in one physical stroke, one uninterrupted breath, or (on instruments with neither breath nor bow) connected into a phrase as if played in a single breath. In certain contexts, a slur may only indicate to play the notes legato. In this case, rearticulation is permitted.
Slurs and ties are similar in appearance. A tie is distinguishable because it always joins exactly two immediately adjacent notes of the same pitch, whereas a slur may join any number of notes of varying pitches.

Zafar,

Apparently we do not have that many participants. It may be easier if we try something like X players (anybody can play) and Y days (and they can play any time) with a constrain is that a player does not post 2 or more consecutive bars (it's not really a game if one person plays most of the time).

Hi, Chu Bun,
You are the leader.
Let's create X number of players and open for Y days game.My only difficulty is to recognize the notes by ear, played and recorded by other players.If notes are posted and known to me,I 'll post my notes to progress the game.

OK. I started a game here. Hopefully we get a few measures at the end of the month.

(I think the game is for ear training, but if you have problem telling the notes, they are AAEB)

I guess the only rule is "adding 4 quarter notes". Posting the notes is optional. By the way, it sounds like you played the same A for the first two notes (Should be A2 then A3).

Hi Angela, your improvisation is very nice! That's an enjoyable arpeggio-like tune. You also spanned it to more than 1 octave.
As of Ecossaise, it sounds quite clean and confident and at good tempo. But it appears that your right hand struggles a bit when you play first measures. Also, there are some missing finger alterations. I think this is because of apoyando. I have troubles with apoyando as well...

Angela, I looked more closely at how you play measures 1 and 3 (notes in the rectangles): I think you don't do slurs.
Measure #1: finger 3 pulls off from A on string 3. No right hand involved.
Measure #3: finger 4 hammers on to produce D (string 2). No right hand involved.
These seem to be most complicated parts of the piece and that's why we had appropriate exercises.
