D02 Classical guitar lesson 08

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Apr 03, 2019 9:17 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.

Great stuff Ken. I knew I could count on you to forge ahead. I enjoyed listening to your submissions. As per usual, they are great. It looks like folks on the French board, not surprisingly, agree with me.

Over the next few weeks, I am revisiting my pieces in lessons 1-7, with a particular focus on my RH technique. As I repeatedly have noted, I owe you a debt of gratitude for consistently reminding me about my RH. I will probably pursue the pieces in lessons 8-10 over the summertime.

Thank you again for generous comment, Judy. :merci:
One of moderator from french forum uploaded advanced score for JP Krieger Minuet. I'm practicing that now along with tunes from 9th lesson. :ouioui:
I'm struggling now with rasgueado, as I mentioned above already. It surely doesn't feel like I'm getting better at all. :chaud:
It is a great idea to revisit tunes from previous lessons. You will get better and play easier with nice flow than before. :okok:
I'm waiting for exam piece announcement on 20th! :D :bye:

These are all nicely done, as usual Ken. (I have a friend named Kim Johns so I apologize if I occasionally address you by the wrong name). We have a lot in our plate this month, yet you always go even a bit further than expected, which also explains your amazing progress with these lessons! You should be proud. 👍🏼

:merci: for listening and generous comment, Linda.
These minuets and rasgueado is a lot to work on. I'm very satisfied with Maestro Delcamp's method. I really don't feel I need any other extra work from any other method yet. Delcamp's book itself has many charming tunes that students miss to play.
I might need more intermediate exercises from Scott Tenant's pumping nylon, when I reach D04.
I believe D01=Very Beginner, D02=Beginner and D03=Late beginner. You will enjoy Minuets. :ouioui:

Ken, (or anyone), how did you go about understanding how to play the rythym and timing in La Tarentela? I’ve listened to it dozens of times, tried counting out the written notation, tried learning one bar at a time and then stringing the next bar together. And I still can’t hear or feel or understand the rythym in my head so I can tell my hands what to do. It just feels very foreign and awkward to me.

Sorry for asking such a hard-to-answer question. ☺️

Can everyone please check here https://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/ ... 3#p1349862 that you are qualified for the exam.
I’ve sent out some PMs where I’ve spotted missing videos, but may have missed some.

Linda, I'm glad I can help you. :discussion:
When you watch La Tarantela from YouTube, click setting and change play speed to 0.5 to make half slower or you can even go 0.25 also. :ouioui:
You will hear rhythm clearly. :wink:

This is my final version of La Tarantela and I believe I got it. :D

..... tried counting out the written notation,
I assume you have counted 3 beats to the bar, each quaver (1/8 note) taking 1 beat and each crotchet (1/4 note) taking 2 beats. Try counting and tapping without playing anything.

Well-played, Mike :okok:, although you might need to correct some. :discussion:

Slurs: You did it wrong, Mike. Please, look score and Maestro Delcamp's video carefully again. :chaud:

Impro: Very peaceful and comfortable impro. :bravo:

Krieger Minuet: :bravo: for this Minuet. Beautifully played and interpreted. :ouioui:

La Tarantela: I don't think you read what prof. Delcamp wrote, which is following. I believe rasgueado shouldn't sound like strum at all. :shock:

- 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.
