D02 Classical guitar lesson 08

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Fri Feb 28, 2014 8:29 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D02.
If you are new to the course, please read this message to familiarize yourself with the conditions for participating in the lessons. You should also read the first message in lesson 1, where you will find advice on how to make the most of your study time and on the methods of practising that I recommend.




First we will study some technical exercises from volume D02.
- page 77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GAMMES - SCALE - SCALES – ESCALAS
When changes of position are needed, you will be using the "position shift" technique. The position shift involves moving the left hand along the neck, from position to position, from fret to fret. Position shifts are shown by oblique lines linking two fingering indications given for the same finger.
Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.


- page 80 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
Ascending slurs are produced by striking (hammering down on) the string with a left hand finger. The faster and more decisive this movement is, the more volume is obtained. Practise particularly on the nylon (unwound) strings, as these are the most difficult to get a clear sound from.


- page 82 number 34 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) ARPÈGES - ARPEGGI - ARPEGGIOS – ARPEGIOS


- page 86 6/ Improvise using only 6 notes (D E G A B C) for 20'.






Next we'll work on five pieces :
- page 35 Johann-Philipp KRIEGER (1652-1735) MENUET
- page 37 Henry PURCELL (1659-1695) MENUET Z. 649
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemiola



The Tarentela and the 2 Villanos are played using strums with the index finger. The arrows indicate the direction of the strum. In the strum, several strings are struck in rapid succession, to give the effect of a chord, that is to say of notes played simultaneously.

- page 43 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA TARENTELA
In bars 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8 the thumb rests on the 6th string. In bars 3, 6 and 7 the thumb rests on the 5th string. It is important not to move the hand while the index finger moves up and down. Resting the thumb on a bass string helps to keep the hand still. It also prevents the accidental sounding of one or more bass strings that are not used in certain chords.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarantella


- page 49 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) 2 VILLANOS
2 Villanos: While the index finger is playing the strums, the thumb rests on the 5th string. Except when the chord of A major is being played, where the thumb rests on the 6th string.



I ask you first to work on all these exercises and pieces for one week and then to post your recordings on the forum for:
- page 80 number 25 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS - LIGADOS
- page 86 6/ Improvise using only 6 notes (D E G A B C) for 20'.
- page 35 Johann-Philipp KRIEGER (1652-1735) MENUET
- page 43 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA TARENTELA



Good luck!


I thank Geoff (GeoffB) who has helped in the translation of my lessons into English.

In Krieger Minuet in measures eg 6 and 7 we keep the notes till the ----- lines finish? So in measure 6 sol will last 2/4 instead of 1/4? Thank you.

Those lines indicate the hemiolas. The durations of the notes don't change, only the accentuation. Normally when the time signature is 3/4 you would emphasize the first beat of each bar slightly. But now instead of emphasizing the the notes occurring at the first beat of bars 6 and 7, you emphasize the first and the third beats of bar 6, and the second beat of bar 7. So in effect you play those two bars as if it was three bars with the time signature changed into 2/4.

So instead of: BEAT, beat, beat | BEAT, beat, beat
you play: BEAT, beat, BEAT | beat, BEAT, beat

Hopefully my explanation makes sense :bye:

Thanks Marko. I was wondering what those markings meant.

Hi, has anyone been able to figure out the trill being used in measure 7 of the Johann-Philipp KRIEGER MENUET. I can't seen to figure out what's being played.

D01. Symbols

"--------" indicate that the fingers of the left hand are not lifted but remain in place on the fingerboard.

Un saludo
Mariano.

Hi Halil, it's a cross-string trill, and it's played like this:
1) p plays 'e' on the 4th string, and at the same time a plays 'c' on the 2nd string.
2) i plays 'b' on the 3rd string (4th fret)
3) m plays 'c' on the 2nd string
4) p plays 'b' on the 3rd string (4th fret)

The notes are played in very rapid succession, which is why finger alternation must be used. Naturally all the notes are being let ring which eachother, which creates a harpsichord-like effect. It's an advanced technique, way beyond the 2nd year, so don't feel bad if you can't make it sound like professor Delcamp does.

Hi Mariano,

That is the case when the dashed line connects two notes of the same pitch, as in 'La Tête Bizarde' (D01 page 14; bars 23-24). When the dashed line is used above the staff to group notes together, it means a hemiola.

Here's a brief explanation on a cross-string trill.

Really good find, Stefan!
Many of the things he talks about generalize well into arpeggio playing as such :merci:

He's a solid teacher, infrequent videos though, can't blame him.

Hey thanks guys for this really interesting discussion. I've been trying to do one of these cross string trills without any clue as to how to go about it (or indeed knowing that it had a name!) Suffice to say that I wasn't very successful.
Anyway, the explanation and video are very helpful, so hopefully I'll do a better job next time!
Regards, Linda
