D05 Classical guitar lesson 10

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Thu Jun 06, 2019 12:02 pm

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the latest version of volume D05.
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're going to work on a series of exercises:
- pages 152, 153 Francisco Tàrrega (1852-1909) Estudio en la mayor n°101, Estudio en mi mayor n°102.




Today we'll look at 4 pieces.
- page 26 Anonyme Se Io M'accorgo ben d'un altro amante
This piece is made up of 3 phrases of 4 bars each. The second and third phrases begin with an upbeat on the last eighth note (quaver) of the preceding bar. Each phrase is divided into two parts of two bars each. The first part of the phrase gathers momentum, suggesting a crescendo and possible accelerando. The second part of the phrase falls away, suggesting a diminuendo and allargando.



- page 64 Dionisio Aguado (1784-1849) Egercicio 19
A very good arpeggio exercise. I recommend that you practise it with the fingers of the plucking hand placed on the strings, as I demonstrate in the following short video.


The passage from bar 7 to bar 8 requires a little-taught technique. Many editors simplify the passage by making the F# which begins bar 8 an octave lower. The solution that I suggest involves using the second finger as a pivot finger. This holding on of the pivot finger is indicated in the score by a broken line linking the last A of bar 7 to the first A of bar 8.



- page 88 Julián Arcas (1832-1882) La Saltarina
This polka-mazurka is based on a phrase structure of 4 bars. Julián Arcas learned the guitar using Dionisio Aguado's method, and later became the teacher of Francisco Tarrega. Julián Arcas bridges the gap between the classical and modern periods. He would also go on to compose in the popular style of his country, the flamenco.





- page 120 Jean-François Delcamp (1956) Prélude n°1 en ré mineur
An arpeggio study in D minor which requires a lot of rubato. Use accelerando to accompany the reduction of intervals within bars. Many bars begin with an interval of a tenth or a sixth, and end with a smaller interval, like a fourth, a third, or a second. You will be pleased to know that bars 14 and 15 serve as a short respite. I particularly like this interlude which fits nicely into the study without dissolving in it. To lead back into the repeat of the first 8 bars, I devised a little "springboard" in bars 27 to 29 from a ninth chord on the dominant (A 9th).




I ask you first to work on all these exercises and tunes for a week and then to upload your recordings of:
- page 26 Anonyme Se Io M'accorgo ben d'un altro amante
- page 88 Julián Arcas (1832-1882) La Saltarina



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 Colin Bullock, John Montes, Rick Beauregard, Marko Räsänen and lagartija who have enabled these courses to run so smoothly.

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

Jean-François

You will have seen the post by Prof Delcamp concerning an update to the registration conditions for the lessons viewtopic.php?f=41&t=54023#p587778
If you intend to take part in the new series of lessons in the Autumn, you should read the conditions as there have been some changes.

Below is a summary of some of the changes I have spotted that will affect you:
  • Student group will be cleared in August; new and returning students may register between September and December.
  • The Students group will be closed for new registrations at the end of December (since any later doesn't allow time to complete the course properly)
  • No joining more than one forum for lessons - no simultaneous eg English/French participating.
  • Students need to be able to express themselves clearly in the language of their chosen forum (they've had some real Google translation howlers on the French forum, to the exasperation of the mods there)
  • Each lesson will be locked 3 months after posting.
  • Students are expected to post at least one message per week containing encouragement, constructive criticisms, or advice. Students will be removed from the group if no posts are made in 2 weeks, unless valid reason given (there was already a condition to post once a week, but now it is being enforced).
  • Video recordings only - no audio (in lessons and exams)
  • D06 and above to be on each forum, rather than just on the Spanish forum (less friction over Google translations)
  • D06 to D08 combined into a single course (allowing a viable class size)

Wow! quite some changes - A good idea to combine groups 6/7/8 together, but does that mean we all comment on each others playing ie group 6 members comment on submissions by groups 7 and 8? Should be interesting anyway. Hope the english group works out OK or I'll have to take a crash course in Spanish.

We think that’s how it will work. Even at level 8 a group 6 could still make reasonable comments on timing, dynamics etc, so you should be able to make a valuable contribution.
Are you thinking to do 6 next?

Yes, would like to do level 6 as long as there are enough of us to make up a reasonable group. I guess we will just have to wait and see. How about you Colin? anyone else?

I went through the 05 pieces as best I could but couldn’t do the videos. Hand exercises and thumb brace are working well and I’m making good progress so I hope fo be able to join in.
Chu completed the lessons, but like you, injury prevented doing the exam.
Andrei did say he would be back and he’s very capable of handling 06.
I’m game if you are, let’s see how it goes.

Sounds good to me. Nice to hear you are making progress with your injury - hopefully you will be up and running in time for the start of D06. Lets just hope we can all comply with the new more stringent conditions. :wink:

I don’t think it will be too onerous, just need to comment each week. Mods will make exceptions if someone is ill or away on business.

I’ve had a quick look at some of the 06 pieces. They seem to involve more intricate fingerings and some pieces don’t have fingerings. More moving up and down the fretboard.
We’ll see :?
