Hi everyone,

I'd like to clarify about the bass notes since it is so hard to notice from Mr Delcamp's video. When you look at measure 1 and 2, do all bass notes have the same length? or are they different? I thought they were all the same but later I notice that the second one seemed like eight note since it is sharing the flag with the melody note? CMIIW.

Here is my recording & thanks for watching:

Very good performances William :bravo:

In Ghiribizzo 23 theoretically the bass note is always the same note as the melody note it attaches to. So they would be of different lengths. But professor Delcamp sometimes plays the quaver length bass notes as crotchet length. In my opinion you are free to experiment with the bass note durations. Using quaver duration for bass notes that are connected to quaver length melody notes will sound more accentuated / percussive than crotchet length.

George,

Nicely played, clear strokes and slurs in general. I think there are some notes that are not the same as the score on the last repeating section of the sheet though.

Thanks for the comments on my video.

Concerning weather to remember the notes or not, I think that there are advantages in both methods.
I find that not remembering the notes, but rather reading it helps me to practice to read music faster. In addition, not looking at the frets helps me to remember the "feel" of each position on the frets more. On the other hand, I agree that remembering the notes allows you to concentrate more on the playing and getting better sound. Also the more you memorize, the better you become at memorizing so I think that's a plus also. Personally, I have been tending to read the notes more because I want to get used to the feel of the positions of the fret, and I'm still not very good at reading notes. But I think I will have to practice to memorize more since I have terrible memory when it comes to remembering scores and usually just end up remembering finger positions instead!

Ghiribizzo is very well played both timing and clarity are great! The improvisation also sounds good, well done!

Win, yes I've made an error on the first repetition of the second part of the last part =(
Somehow for me it's very difficult to play without the score.

William, superb control and timing. Ditto for Catherine and George.

Here's where I'm at as of now with the Ghiribizzo no. 23. Those high notes are not easy :)

:bravo: Satyajit

You played the Paganini clearly with no mistakes. :)
It sounds good. With repetition and practice it will sound great!
I liked your addition to the musical game as well. :)
I agree that it turned into a clever little tune. What
should we name it?

William,

You play the Paganini piece with confidence. It was very enjoyable to listen to.

Here's my improvisation.
Surprisingly, I've found it very difficult to improvise in 3/4, all the improvisation I did before was in 4/4.
In this piece as well I start in 3/4 only to descend to 4/4 back in the second part and then back to 4/4 (have to work in other rhytms more often!)

@Catherine, we can call the game piece 'Waltz Macabre' as it has a somewhat ominous feel to it. Like entering a haunted house :)
On another note, on the Folias, I just noticed you played D Major instead of D minor. I like the sequence of notes though, no hiccups at all!

@George, nice improvisation!

Hello my friends,

here are my recordings for lesson #7. I've started with D03 very late this year and still don't have much free time - so please forgive lack of my forum activities.

Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) GHIRIBIZZO n°23:

Arpeggios improvisation upon the harmonic sequence of "Folias":

I've participated in a music game too.

Looking forward to end year exams :) Thanks for your feedback and have a nice day!
