That's a very good explanation and great points, Chu.Chu Bun wrote:Sorry for being late in the discussions. I was on Spring break then caught a flu afterward.
I agree with Dave. If you pull the string up and release it, the first and maximum swing will be in the downward direction and if the action of your guitar is too high, the string may hit the fret and make a twanging sound. Instead you should push the string down with your finger, then let the string slips up to make the sound. This is very similar to when you do a rest stroke. I remember reading somewhere your rest stroke and free stroke should be almost identical until the very last phase where the finger rests.
By the way, I don't think you really need to grow nails to play classical guitar. I guess most of us started too late to worry about reaching world class level, so a few disadvantages will probably not make much difference. I play without nails and I would say the only time I regress not growing nail is when I tried to learn the piece Recuerdos de la Alhambra. So I learn to hate that piece instead!
Hi Bert, thank you for making your postings - I enjoyed listening to them. I like what you have done with the improvisation of the folias.Bert Stendahl wrote:Lesson 07
Yes, this is the part I find more difficult, hitting the notes on the stretches. I might come back to it after the exam, but I think I will need to memorise sections in order to take my eyes off the music.DaveMoutrie wrote:There are some tricky bits in part c of the ghiribizzo - slides and stretches.
