Delcamp D03 lesson 10 week n Malagueña Facil measures 33 to 56

Post by OlgaVovk » Sat Aug 03, 2019 7:42 pm

Deear all,
Here is my attempt of Malagueña Facil measures 33 to 56
As usual I am doing this in pieces,
I don't like how my tear-offs sound and I don't know how to make them better and faster
I wonder if anyone could provide me with some insight, It does bother me
i would be very grateful :-)



Thank you!!!
Olga

Hi Olga,

I think your pull-offs are strong, so you have half the battle. Now work on making them beautiful and tuneful and quick. Try pull offs with less pull, almost just lift off. It may not sound right and too soft, but what will be working on is something between the two extremes. After light try a little more pull, and incrementally increase until you reach the sound you want. With a lighter touch you will also get better tone and speed potential. Practice with the Segovia slur exercises until you have the control you are seeking.

Also it helps to keep nails trimmed short and file off/smooth your callouses, if that is causing catching or harsh sound.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Hi Tom
You’ve now been ‘activated’, welcome to the moderator group. I’ll give you time to read through the moderator guidance notes and then take you through how I update the lesson index. I didn’t do the updates on lessons after 7 so you would have somewhere to practice :D

I’ve put some suggestions on how we split the load on the mod area, see you there when you’ve had time to look around.

All the best
Colin

Hi Olga - I am having some of the same issues with pull-offs. I hated the tinny sound. Rick gives very good advice. One other thing I have noticed - we have been taught for pull-offs to pull the finger down to rest on the next string, but when I did that I was dragging the string across the fret during the pull down causing the "tinny sound". I found after after hitting the note I pull down but release enough of the string so I don't drag it across the fret. This is lot easier to practice on the 2nd string where after pulling off the 2nd string your the tip of your finger comes to rest on the 1st string but with more space between the finger and the neck than I had been doing when I just pulled straight down to the next string.

Hi Colin, I'll let you know when I get through the reading material. I would like to try some lesson updates, hands-on training works best for me.

Next attempt at Malaguena. Stumbled near the end but from my ears a definite improvement over my June attempt

Yes, Ed,
it sounds so much better,
I woner if you might consider working on phrasing and dinamics now,
it looks like you knew the piece and now you can own it :-)
Thank you!

Olga - thank you. I am a little tired of this piece but I will use your suggestion of dynamics and phasing on the next attempt of the TANGO exercise.

I am part of Adult Student Music Forum (AMSF) - http://www.amsfperform.org/

A simple one, my piano partner is much betetr than I am

I wonder if someone could recommend a few pieces which are in public domain (better) or some sheet music (in notaton) which could be downloaded/purchased?
Any advice/suggestion are highly appreciated,
Thank you very much!

Olga - this is coming along nicely. I really like the vibrato on the melody notes. On measures 1 -5, because of the camera angle, I could not tell if you were hitting both the 5th and 4th strings with your thumbstroke which gives the Trumpet sound.
