Damping is a challenge, and there are some big stretches in the last section, measures 25, 26, 27. There are no damping markings, but the bass notes are quarter or eighth notes and should only ring for one beat, or half beat, respectively, so damping is implied. You can play the B in measure 27 on the second string open, but it is fingered for the third string, 4th finger (the stretch in the highlighted section). This will give it a sweeter sound, but I think others (Haris or Duang, can't remember) played it open. Otherwise the piece isn't too hard to learn. With repeats its rather long. You play it all the way through, then repeat the last 8 bars, then repeat from the top up to the Fine. Oh and don't forget the grace note slur in measures 11, 15.Beatriz Martin wrote:So is the exam piece from this lesson? I didn't even study this Ghiribizzo 23 yet. Any ideas for learning it well? Thanks,
I had trouble with this recording my lesson for this piece because it was a bit long. I'd get it perfect, right until I realized I was almost to fine, then I'd muff.Beatriz Martin wrote:
It'll be interesting to try to record an exam piece without getting nervous, I wonder how many times we will have to start the recording by saying our names and then stop in the middle and start again.
Good idea, otherwise we will be: my name is ... my name is... again and again Althought maybe what we are supposed to do is to practice until getting it perfect then on the last week try 3 recordings and choose the best one.Rick Beauregard wrote:I asked for clarification on recording your name etc. If we can do it once, then edit it into the beginning of our recording of the piece. No answer yet.
until when do we hold the G? just until after playing the B with the pinky?CarlWestman wrote:one of them is that reach with the pinky in measure 27. I realize you can release the index (finger 1), but you still have to hold down the G with finger 3.
Hi Rick, Marko said in page 1Rick Beauregard wrote:There are no damping markings, but the bass notes are quarter or eighth notes and should only ring for one beat, or half beat, respectively, so damping is implied.
not sure what this means.Marko Räsänen wrote:It's not apparent from the notation, but I would say that all the bass notes are of quarter note / crotchet duration.
Rick, how do you exactly play the grace notes thanks,Rick Beauregard wrote:Oh and don't forget the grace note slur in measures 11, 15.
Actually there would be rests in the bass line if they were eighths, so all of the bass lines must be quarter notes.Rick Beauregard wrote: I might interpret those connected to the eighth notes to be eighths since there is no down stem showing them as quarter. In any event the require damping.
