D03 Classical guitar lesson 10

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:05 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D03.
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.




Now we are going to work on a series of exercises:
- page 101 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) BARRÉ - BARRÉ - BARRÉ – CEJILLA
To acquire the technique for the barré, it is essential above all not to force it. The ideal is to practise a little, but every day. Practising the barré demands patience. The first results of this practice (improvement in strength) only become noticeable after several weeks or months of daily practice.





To continue your progress during the summer, I suggest several pieces, the most difficult in the collection, which will make use of all the techniques that we have studied during the year.
- pages 28-29 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) CLARINES Y TROMPETAS


- page 74-75 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) TANGO


- page 76-77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MALAGUEÑA FÁCIL


- page 83 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) NOVELETTE 002



I look forward to hearing you play these exercises and pieces.
- pages 28-29 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) CLARINES Y TROMPETAS
- page 76-77 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MALAGUEÑA FÁCIL



Good luck!

We have reached the end of this year of studying together. I am intending to resume next year.

My thanks to the students, to Geoff for his splendid translations, and also to Robert Goodwin, Alan (Tarbaby), Rich (oski79) and lagartija who have enabled these courses to run so smoothly.

I wish you all a good summer. See you again soon.

Jean-François

Thank You Professor Delcamp for posting these lessons. We have learned some wonderful pieces this year.
I appreciate the videos and clear instructions. :)
Congratulations D03 students! We have made it this far. Good luck on the final exam.
I have started working on these pieces but will probably post them over the Summer.

In the Malaguena, for the opening bars, are the 2 chords played from lowest to highest first or the other way? It says 'p' with the arrow going downwards so I'm assuming a down to top motion?

R.E. Rasgueado strokes-
The upside down "v" ^= downstroke from low strings to high. Right side up V- upstroke high strings to low.
The Maleguena Facil peice indicates the thumb is used for a downtroke and the P finger for the upstroke.
This is how I interpret it. I hope I am correct

Ok.. so the thumb first plays the low E 6th string, then it plays an upstroke starting from the first string, and then m plays the downstroke Rasgueado.

Thanks, Marco. That was interesting. So the markings could mean either a downstroke or an upstroke depending on the piece itself. Also, interesting discussion on trills... yes, they seem difficult as of now. I feel Baroque trills sound better when started on the higher note.

These pieces for lesson 10 combine the whole year's techniques - p-i-m-a alternations, rasqueados, slurs, trills etc.
