D01 Classical guitar lesson 04

Postby Jean-François Delcamp » Mon Dec 05, 2016 2:45 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D01.
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 D01.
Page 54: G major scale and C major scale, numbers 4 and 5. Be sure to damp the notes properly in the descending passages. To damp the notes in the descending passages: lean the fingers of the left hand against the vibrating strings.

Finally, we'll look at six simple tunes, pages 21 to 25
Anonyme : La cucaracha
Anonyme : C'est la cloche du vieux manoir
Anonyme : Le coucou
Anonyme : Alouette, gentille alouette
Anonyme : Vent frais, vent du matin
Anonyme : Lundi matin
Anonyme : Cadet Rousselle

I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
Anonyme : La cucaracha
Anonyme : Alouette, gentille alouette
Anonyme : Lundi matin
Anonyme : Cadet Rousselle


Good luck!


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

The pinky (finger 4) of the fretting hand will be able to naturally dampen the open G note/string as you plant it to fret the following F-note on the D-string.

The numerical (4) in the drawing is indicating the finger to use for fretting the F-note.

Hi Lucin,
I am not the best at dampening but here is my stab at an example for you.
These two pieces are in the Key Of G so they have one Sharp F#. It took me a while to figure this out.

Hi and happy new year to all.

@Dustin: perfect and very quick :bravo:

@Georgi: very well. I like it :casque:

@Lucian: I think you are too quick at the first part from la cucaracha or too slow at the second part. Your tempo is not the same during the song.
It looks so easy when you play. I like how you use your left hand. My fingers are always so cramped
