Barrios Mangoré, Agustín - Cancion de la Hilandera

Post by hungryman » Wed Sep 26, 2007 5:11 am

Hey everyone,
for those of you who don't know, the title in english is Song of the Thread Spinner. On the top of my sheet music it says "Mexico, March, 1933." I picture old seamstresses in a village somewhere in mexico and it's about 100 degrees and they are humming along as they work.
This is my first tremolo piece besides the ol' Carcassi no. 7 which doesn't count if you ask me-and my first Barrios piece. He really was an amazing composer.

HI Hungryman!

Thanks for playing for us. Even though you say it is your first tremolo piece, you do the tremolo already very convincing, with a pleasing steadiness. Great work!!

The middle section is somehow truncated. Hey, you've got the rare chance to recover from tremoloing, and you don't use it!

Overall, a big :okok:

:merci:

Hi

It is certainly a lovely Tremolo piece by the Maestro Barrios.

The name of the city where Barrios composed this piece is Puebla. As the title shows it is the result of an inspiration by watching a worker at the spinning-wheel and the tremolo represents the repetitive and fast movements of the spinner.

your tremolo is nice and steady. congratulations for selecting this nice piece for your first tremolo piece. I prefer a little faster movement of the spinning wheel.

I remember playing a non-tremolo line in the last page. maybe my arrangement is different with yours.

Happy Guitar
Homayoon

You're right. I asked my teacher why there are different versions of this piece.(after listening to the two on this forum)He said that Barrios would write or rewrite his works and give them away as gifts.

hello hungryman

You probably have a pretty good and expensive guitar, I love its sound...and this piece from the master Barrios sounds very nice on it.

Congratulations!

PS: I haven't heard this song before, but now that I heard it I will include it in my repertoire.

Yes sir, that's my teachers guitar(one of them). I will probably rerecord this because my tremolo is still changing constantly! THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS!

Hello hungryman

Sounds good. Tremolo is always difficult to play with feeling, it's easier and sounds more impressive if played through at break-neck speed, but that's not what it's about. You've done a good job here; it's full of emotion, I look forward to hearing more recordings by you.

Paul
