Giuliani, Mauro - op.050/13 Allegro - D04 Video

Hi people! This song is composed by Mauro Giuliani and I am the one playing on the video. Could you guys tell me what you think of it, and maybe provide some feedback? I'm quite new, so don't expect the highest quality. Also, the volume is quite low on the video, and you might have to turn it up :)

Hi Gustav,
Is there any way that you can record this piece again with the volume louder? I couldn't get my sound system loud enough to hear you play. :(

This is a pretty tough piece, you actually play it technically pretty well overal.

However I would suggest to work on it more slowly so that you master it completely. In classical guitar we normály don't win any big points for playing tougher pieces that are however "not there" technically.

And you could also then concentrate more on the music, e.g., what is melody and what it accompaniment in this piece?

regards, Mike

Hey, nice post!

I think that you are not ready yet to play this piece. There are several hints, for example:

- your thumb (l.h.) should never play towards the index finger
- fingers of the r.h. are not preparing for next notes
- tone is uneven
- rhythm is uneven

That are some points you could work on. It's your decision :)
I always remind myself: cleanness ALWAYS over speed! If you can't play something relaxed and clean in the supposed speed, than you have to play it at slower speed and gradually speed up. Muscles and brain learn, but slow. I think it has something to do with the motion moving to the reflex center of the brain. This takes A LOT time and work. Once it is in the reflex center, it stays there for ever :)

Good luck!

Hi Nazgul, I remember hearing John Mills play this sweet piece, only about 20x faster (and livelier)! The only thing which I feel is lacking in your rendition is the crescendo towards the last few bars - ending with a climatic bang! Keep practicing until you reach warp speed and you will only hear the melodic line with a droning accompaniment in the background!
