Llobet, Miguel - El Testament d’Amelia - Video

Post by RenaissanceStrings » Fri Apr 19, 2019 12:14 pm

Hello all,

I hope that this message finds you all in good health. Today, I will be sharing with you all, my rendition of Miguel Llobet’s “El testament D’Amelia”. It has been a year or so since my last post as I decided to focus on technique and musicality rather than on recordings or videos.
In short, I've been studying the classical guitar for around two years now and it would be fair to say that I have never felt as attached to anything as I do my guitar. I spend around two hours a day studying theory and working on my technique and I think this is the best place to get fair critique and insight on my progress. I hope that you all enjoy it and I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a lovely day.

Mohsin

Wow, Mohsin, for just two years your progress is very good. We studied this piece as part of D07 this year. You nailed the harmonics pretty well, the most challenging part of this piece, save for a few fingering challenges. I struggled too, as you'll see below.

For comparison I offer my rendition from this year's lessons on Delcamp with no added effects. Although I came back to this piece this year, I have been playing it for quite a while.

One thing I learned from your video is to improve my background. Nice clean background and props! My videos have been focussed on the lesson submittals, so I haven't paid much attention to video production details such as this. Nice work.

All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Hi RIck,

Thank you for your feedback and video. You have a great understanding of the piece and play with maturity. Thank you for sharing. In regards to the harmonics in the piece, they were indeed challenging but as with anything else; practice makes perfect. I have subscribed to your youtube channel and look forward to speaking to you in the future. Have a lovely day.
