D03 Classical guitar lesson 10

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed May 31, 2017 6:36 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D03.
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.




Now we are going to work on a series of exercises:
- page 101 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) BARRÉ - BARRÉ - BARRÉ – CEJILLA
To acquire the technique for the barré, it is essential above all not to force it. The ideal is to practise a little, but every day. Practising the barré demands patience. The first results of this practice (improvement in strength) only become noticeable after several weeks or months of daily practice.

Youtube





To continue your progress during the summer, I suggest several pieces, the most difficult in the collection, which will make use of all the techniques that we have studied during the year.

- page 74-75 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) TANGO

Youtube


- page 76-77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MALAGUEÑA FÁCIL

Youtube


- page 83 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) NOVELETTE 002

Youtube



I look forward to hearing you play these exercises and pieces.
- pages 28-29 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) CLARINES Y TROMPETAS
- page 76-77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MALAGUEÑA FÁCIL



Good luck!

We have reached the end of this year of studying together. I am intending to resume next year.

My thanks to the students, to Geoff for his splendid translations, and also to Colin Bullock, John Montes, Rich (oski79), Marko Räsänen and lagartija who have enabled these courses to run so smoothly.

I wish you all a good summer. See you again soon.

Jean-François

led "movable" chords,[1] as the player can move the whole chord shape up and down the neck.[2] Commonly used in both popular and classical music, Barre chords are frequently used in combination with "open" chords, where the guitar's open (un fretted) strings construct the chord. Playing a chord with the barre technique slightly affects tone quality. A closed, or fretted, note sounds slightly different sound than an open, un fretted, string. Barre chords are a distinctive part of the sound of pop music and rock music.wiki

Zafar - hope you are doing well, thanks for the detail, especially the double "X" which was new to me. If anyone has a good video on how to play this vibrato. I would love to see it.

Thank you for the links Zafar, hope things are going well with you.

It appears there are 2 different techniques for vibrato. Classical guitar players seem to favour the left right/horizontal waggle while steel string player prefer the up and down vertical waggle.

Is anyone else having any problems with the strumming in the tango and the Malaguena?

The Tango is a strum using a, m, i in parallel - the difficulty here is to get all 3 fingers to hit the strings at the same time while only playing the top 3 strings. In the Malaguena we are hitting the strings with a,m,i one at a time in rapid succession.

In the Clarinets and trompets piece the challenge is currently to get the long trills to sound right. Jean Francois, you make it look so easy!

I'll keep perservering and hope to post something soon.

Hi Dave
You are way ahead of me, we have decorators & roofers working so v busy and not a lot of time to practice.
In the Tango I read the ami strum as rasgueado where fingers hit ima scraping across strings but looking at video I wonder is it a pluck rather than strum? The 3 fingers appear to rest on the strings before plucking and then the index strums.
What do you think?

Thank you for your comments Colin.

I had a look on the french forum and they apppear to be playing it as an index finger strum as you suggest - JF appears to be strumming with all 4 but not in a true rasgueado fashion perhaps I'll try the single finger strum to start with.

The Malaguena really does merit a true rasgueado - its a bit noisy when I do it though, could be a good one to start with when the roofers are banging away.

Good luck with the roofers and decorators Colin - could be time to leave them for an hour or two and start playing the guitar al fresco!

Dave, it sounds good. Great trills!
Just an observation: the left hand jumps too much sometimes.

Thanks Colin, I'm still working on this one along with the other pieces - I'm not totally confident about the long trills and there are a few hesitations here and there.

Hope things are good with you, do you think you will be joining the D04 next time round?
