This is marked andante, so for my taste the OP's tempo is quite fast, sounds like allegretto. Nothing wrong with striving for the ability to play it cleanly at that tempo though!lagartija wrote: Do you have a comment about the musical/technical intent of this study? (Besides velocity).
Very good point, and nice to hear it approached differently from how most people might approach it in a traditional sense. I'll look forward to seeing what else you post in the future!Dmitry Nilov wrote:Thanks for your appreciation!
Music is a living matter and it would be wrong to put it into "chains" of any metronome's tempo. In different times tempos had varieties. I've just showed here one of the examples of the performing ("prima vista"). There can be several of them, despite the apparent simplicity.
My purpose was to show that these "simple" etudes for beginners can sound in different ways. They are really good for brainwork training, for working with phrasing and articulation, conception and, inevitably, with fingering. A large field for researches of a beginning guitar player.
The etudes like this are ideal to acquire the musical literacy and to understand the laws of the Music.
I'm not so sure he's using the little finger at all. I think it's just moving along with use of the a-finger which makes it look like he might be using it.Kent wrote:I see you incorporate extensive use of chiquito (c). The little finger is underused so it is good you are teaching to use it!
You are right! I don't use it (only in rasgueado), but movements of the little finger along with the a-finger mean the muscular freedom that must be.powderedtoastman wrote:

I could be wrong though!
