D03 Classical guitar lesson 06

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:26 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.




Today, we're going to work on a series of exercises.
- page 91 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LEGATO STACCATO
- page 92 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GLISSANDO
- pages 96-97 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MORDANTS ET TRILLES
:idea: :arrow: Level D02-D08, Ornaments in baroque music
When changes of position are needed, you will be using the "position shift" technique. Position I is the left hand position where the index finger (1) is placed behind the 1st fret, position V is the hand position where the index (1) is placed behind the fifth fret, etc. The position shift involves moving the left hand along the neck, from position to position, from fret to fret. In the scales we're looking at today, notice that my first finger never leaves the first string, I use it as a guide for my hand. Position shifts are shown by oblique lines linking two fingering indications given for the same finger.
The following videos are for numbers 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 37, 38, 39 and 40. Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.














Finally, we'll look at 4 pieces, pages 15 and 19.
Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LAS HACHAS
Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA MIÑONA DE CATALUÑA





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 97 numéro 39 Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) MORDANTS ET TRILLES
- page 19 Gaspar SANZ (1640-1710) LA MIÑONA DE CATALUÑA



Good luck!


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

My fingers were/are pretty sore, with this group. Here's an attempt at the optional piece.

Hi, Tom Wimsatt.
Beautiful Trills you've achieved in such a short period. I gave up to join D03 this year because trills and basic rasgueados that I possibly couldn't do without D02 lessons. I started as a very beginner and every single things are new to me. As I see you progress much, I have a confident I'll progress similar like you. IMO, I'd better get stronger slurs before trills comes. Your tempo is just amazing to listen every time. It sounds just lovely. I usually start my lesson with Maestro Delcamp's and your video. I'm currently working on T.Arbreu Pavane with your last year exam video. You are a wonderful player to follow and I'm glad you are in this forum. :bravo: :bye:

Tom - well done.

On the Trills and Mordants, I think we are supposed to record all 4.
On the Cataluna, I really liked the "appearance" of a stress free light hand/fingers during your playing the exercise. You can see the difference in tension, as expected, with the difficult stretching in the Las Hachas exercise

First attempts at the Mordants and Trill. Missed the alternating fingers a couple of times.

Hi, Tom Wimsatt.
Wow. I have been watching your posts for quite some time Ken. I consider you one of the best students on the US forum - your a package - deal, great playing and great support to your fellow students. I am honored to hear my stuff is helping you out.

Pavane was a tricky one, it crowded my fingers at times, causing me to start to take a hard look at RH technique. I'm still working that. ... I also surfed the Web for inspiration. I felt the piece was drab and odd, and needed help getting a musical goal in mind so to speak.

Thanks Mike. I think those drills put permanent dents in my ring and index fingers.

Hi Ed. I agree with Mike, you are doing great. I can tell from watching your LH that you have STRONG FINGERS too.

I think it's number 39 only, but I went ahead and updated my post just in case :okok:

First attempt at Cataluna. Slowed the teacher's recording to 75% and tried to match that speed. Now I need to add speed and work on having the notes flow into each other.

Hi Ed. I agree, you've got a good plan to work this piece. You nailed the Trills, all you need to do is work on flow, then speed. I would consider speed improvement a lower priority if I were you. I felt your speed was fine actually.

Hi Tom - thanks for the feedback. I will concentrate on the flow and then repost later in the month. I must be leaving the notes too early.
