Indeed, it is extremely difficult to think about both hands at the same time. That's why most guitar methods focus on the right hand first so that it goes to the subconscious as soon as possible. I also noticed that it might be extremely difficult to break bad RH fingering after learning some piece. Even after tons of repetitions the right way at slow tempo I still tend to play it wrong way learned before.DaveMoutrie wrote:Thank you for your comments Andrei. You are quite right of course - no excuse really, but I was concentrating so hard on playing the right notes that I didn't think too much about what my right hand was doing.Andrei Puhach wrote:I like your improvisation!DaveMoutrie wrote:Hi all, here are my submissions for this month. Not quite as polished as I would like, but then time marches on and its time to start on lesson 8. I would need to change my name to Norman to get it any better.
Ghiribizzo sounds great as well, but I noticed that you don't alternate RH fingers on the E string (measures 8-11).
As we move on to more difficult and faster pieces, getting the correct right hand fingering correct becomes more and more important in order to keep the music fluid, so you raise a very valid point.
Thank you for your kind comments! Technically, I played the bar 30 wrong. That connecting line must be indicating the pinky shift only, not glissando. Glissando notation is different.DaveMoutrie wrote:Very nicely played Andrei. Nice even tempo throughout, note perfect and good alternating fingers in the right hand. I also noticed excellent economy of movement in both the right and left hand.Andrei Puhach wrote:page 57 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°23
In bar 30 the slide from E to D, I notice that you only pluck the string once and then slide down. Initially I played it the same way, then had a look at what Jean Francois was doing and saw that he was plucking at both the beginning and the end of the slide. Perhaps this is one of those situations where there is no right or wrong answer.
Once again very well done - I hope to be able to learn something from your playing.
Thank you, Ed, for your comment!Ed Butler wrote:Andrei - beautifully played. I watched it a second time with my eyes closed and just enjoyed the music. The next couple of time I focused on each of your hands. Your hand positions/movements are my long term goal.
Well, I don't know, never thought about it I guess it is impossible to keep it straight down, and no need to, it all depends on what fingers do.Ed Butler wrote:Andrei - thanks for the advice. I will look at it now. Quick question on your left arm/elbow do you keep it straight down or do you let it drift outwards?

Interesting arrangement Andrei, I like the way you add extra notes and weave them around the melody.Andrei Puhach wrote:Sorry for a late submission and poor video quality, here is my improvisation (not totally improvisation, it is a semi-composition):
