I have recently completed analyses and performance editions of the Douze Etudes Op. 6 by Fernando Sor. These are free to download under the "Blog" heading of my website for all who may be interested. The editions are in pdf format and are located at the end of the discussions of each of the etudes. http://www.johnhallguitar.com/

Your analysis is exactly what I was searching for, for a long time. Musical theory seems not to be so difficult if it is explained and shown on examples, that can be heard and played and your explanations are easy to follow even for me.
I believe that Sor's complete op6 etudes are not to be found for free somewhere else in the web and they are surely some of the greatest from the classical era. It is a lot of work that you have done, thank you very much for that. It would be great if you could continue with other music.

Many thanks for your analysis of these studies. This is an excellent addition to the lexicon of guitar pedagogy. Blimey, that sounds pompous. What I mean is, I'm delighted to have these, and I'll be using them in my lessons with students. I hope you are encouraged to continue with your analysis of the Sor studies. May I suggest Op 29 next? :-)

Twinkle Twinkle Bach Bourree

Post by johnhall » Thu Jun 16, 2011 6:10 pm

Since completing the Sor Op.6 I have made available an analysis (harmonic) of the famous Bach Bourree in E minor BWV 996 as well as what I think is an interesting jazz harmonization of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star if you can believe that. Both are free to download in the "Blog" section of my website:http://www.johnhallguitar.com/ Hope you find it as interesting as I did.

Nice website, John. Thank you for sharing!

May I suggest that you put the web address in your profile? That way, it will appear on each of your posts as a "globe" icon beneath your username and members can go directly to it. You might be able to pick up a few Skype students. :wink:

I see that you are on the faculty of three colleges. Would you like to be considered for the Teachers Group? It looks like you have fulfilled all of the conditions except that you'll need to contribute a few MP3s.

Just let us know,

Alan

Barrios-Julia Florida Analysis

Post by johnhall » Sat Jun 25, 2011 11:15 pm

I have had quite a bit of time on my hands lately so I figured I would look at some Barrios. Most everyone is familiar with Julia Florida. Although it is no Brahms Intermezzo it is a beautiful piece and a good example of nineteenth century harmony. Again, it is freely available on the “Blog“ page of my website: http://www.johnhallguitar.com/ I hope you find it interesting and thanks for the encouragement.

That's a Bachianas alright. Beautiful! :bravo:

I visited your lovely website shortly after you joined us, John. I was especially pleased to be able to download the Carulli Duets there. I think they are brilliant and I used to have a book of them. Unfortunately, my duo partner absconded with it. :roll:

Good luck and best wishes!
