D01 Classical guitar lesson 09

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Tue Apr 28, 2015 9:43 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 55 : Jean-François Delcamp - Gammes en tierces - Scales in third, number 7 and 8.

Youtube



Finally, we'll look at five tunes, pages 44 to 48.
Page 44 - Anonyme : Chanson italienne

Youtube

Page 45 - Anonyme : Volt en la majeur (Damp the preceding note with the finger indicated.)

Youtube

Page 46 - J. A. P. Schulz (1747-1800) Air

Youtube

Page 47 - Joseph Küffner (1776-1856) Duo opus 168 N°14

Youtube


Youtube

Page 48 - Dionisio Aguado (1784-1849) Valse en sol majeur

Youtube




I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
Page 55, number 8 - Jean-François Delcamp - Gammes en tierces - Scales in third
Page 45 - Anonyme : Volt en la majeur (Damp the preceding note with the finger indicated.)
Page 48 - Dionisio Aguado (1784-1849) Valse en sol majeur


Good luck!


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

A question regarding damping. In the piece "VALSE en sol majeur" on page 48. Since we need to damp the open E in measure 9, should we also need to damp the open G and B in measure 1, 4, 5, and 13?
By the way, I cant hear the "valse" in this piece. Is it a different type of valse?

Sorry I haven't been around was working on truck cut my left thumb and tore skin off a couple of fingers on right hand. Am way behind but am starting up again and will follow lessons on my own. No way to catch up to make required submissions for exam.

Good luck to you all.

I guess the damping of G and B is a matter of taste to a degree. Together with D they form the harmony of G major chord, so damping of them isn't necessary for the reason of disharmony.

Jay, really sorry to hear that. I know how hard it is to catch up after illness etc, I'll still be posting after the exam, so if you keep posting when you are able I'll look at your submissions

Hi, Classmates,
Lets create a G major scale. :)
Formula
Whole,Whole,Half,Whole,Whole,Whole,Half (Whole=Two frets, Half= One Fret)
G to A = Whole
A to B = Whole
B to C = Half
C to D = Whole
D to E = Whole
E to F# = Whole
F# to G = Half
G Major scale will be
G,A,B,C,D,E,F#,G
In home study assignment, "VALSE en sol majeur" music sheet "# " is placed at F position.
Rest, Marko explained it better in his reply to Chu Bun query.

The E in measure 9 is part of the C major chord (C-E-G). So disharmony is not likely the reason for it being damped.

Yes, you're right. Playing the the open 1st string has a tendency to waken the 5th and the 6th in sympathetic resonance, so the reason might be either for you to become aware of this phenomenon, or try to minimize the volume of the 'e' (harmonic) when 'g' is played. Or maybe measure 9 is meant to be played so that 'c' and 'e' do not ring on top of each other, and therefore 'e' is also to be damped, whereas measure 1 is fingered in the way that the 2nd and 3rd string are meant to ring together. The easiest way to damp both 'g' and 'b' would be to play them both on the 3rd string, but that clearly wasn't prof. Delcamp's intention.

Colin,

Thank you for the comments. I spent some time on the "valse", but got really busy lately and just rushed through the first two pieces. Hopefully I can find time to practice for the final. Good thing is the Final piece looks simple and there is no repeat.
