D03 Classical guitar lesson 03

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Tue Nov 15, 2011 7:27 am

Hello everyone,
Please start by downloading the new version of volume D03 that I updated today.
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 88, numbers 10, 11, 12 - Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) GAMMES - SCALE - SCALES – ESCALAS
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 video corresponds to bars 5 to 9 of the scale of F major, number 10 on page 88. In this video example, I am playing slowly to make it easier for you to see my first finger sliding from position I to position V, then from position V to position X. In the descending scale, notice that I do the same thing in reverse. When I return from position X to position V, my first finger slides from one position to the other without ever leaving the string.

The following videos are for numbers 10, 11 and 12 on page 88. Concentrate your practice on the passages highlighted in yellow, and do your best to perfect the position shift technique.





- Page 94, number 30, bar 2. Jean-François DELCAMP (1956) LIAISONS - LEGATURE - SLURS – LIGADOS
We have already worked on the rest stroke (apoyando) with the fingers of the right hand. Now we are going to work on doing a rest stroke with the fingers of the left hand. That is the best way to learn how to execute descending slurs. In number 30, bar 2, the fingers of the left hand execute the slurs with the help of the rest stroke. The fingers 4, 3, 2 and then 1 pluck the second string then finish their move by coming up against the first string. Place the left hand fingers vertically in relation to the fingerboard, that's the right position to play slurs.




Finally, we'll look at 4 pieces, pages 11, 12, 34, 35 and 56.
- page 11 ANONYME (ca. 1600) GREENSLEEVES
In this piece, take care to hold the bass notes for their full duration, especially the C and G basses. In bars 16 and 24, as soon as you get to the second beat you can prepare the fourth finger which will be used for the top G of the following chord. You can see in the piece the Siciliana rhythm (dotted quaver, semiquaver, quaver, or dotted eighth note, sixteenth note, eighth note). The piece consists of three sections, the third section being identical to the first, so it has an A-B-A structure, also called ternary form.



- page 12 ANONYME MARO PONTKALLEG
This piece consists of three sections, the third section being identical to the first, so it has an A-A-B-B-A'-A' structure, also called ternary form.
From bar 25 onwards, arpeggiate your chords slowly from bass to treble, organizing the rhythm in such a way that you finish the arpeggio with the top note on the beat.



- pages 34-35 TURLOUGH O'CAROLAN (1670-1738) BRIAN BORU'S MARCH
This piece consists of three sections, the third section being identical to the first, so it has an A-B-B-A structure, also called ternary form. You can see in the piece the Siciliana rhythm (dotted quaver, semiquaver, quaver, or dotted eighth note, sixteenth note, eighth note).



- page 56 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) VALTZ
Take care to damp the bass notes properly from the second quaver (eighth note) of the bar. This piece consists of two sections which are repeated, so it has an A-A-B-B structure, also called binary form. You can make particularly good use of the repeat if you aim to give it a different feel each time. Thus you could play the B section in a non-conclusive fashion the first time round, and in a conclusive fashion the second time.




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 88 number 10
- Page 94 number 30, bar 2
- page 11 ANONYME (ca. 1700) GREENSLEEVES
- page 56 Niccolò PAGANINI (1782-1840) VALTZ


Good luck!


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

Dear M. Delcamp,
The new version of volume D03 updated November 15, 2011, has the filename of previous version (delcamp_d03___2011-10-18.pdf), which can be misleading.
Regards,
Vlad

Where are the postings of student recordings of this lesson? I will try to post one, though I might be a little advanced for this group. By the way, I love the stretching and the chromatic scale exercises. I never did the chromatic scale right until now (now I hold fingers down unless absolutely necessary to move them) , and it has helped my technique. Thanks, M.Delcamp!

Dear All

Here is my first attempt at the two pieces...I will try to video the scales and ligados tomorrow.

:bravo: Ned, very good, but in some places in greensleevs you sometimes lose a rhythm, you need to regulate this. :bye:

Ned, Nice work on both pieces. I like the thumb damping on the waltz. I think you could even bring it out a little more. On Greensleeves, I agree with Goran. All the notes are good, but the rhythm is off in a couple of places. You are looking more relaxed as you play these tunes. Keep up the good work.

I have done the homework, Delcamp 03, lesson 3 Pp. 94,88,11,56, and it is now on my YouTube channel, but I do not know how to share this video here. I think I have followed YouTube's instructions (clicking "share", then "embed" and copying the code that is supplied), but neither a hypertext link nor an embedded video appears here. Any suggestions?

Donna,

I find it simpler (although probably more time consuming) to just attach my video files inline to the text replies. It takes a while to upload but it doesn't require a YT account. There's no thumbnail in the post but that doesn't seem like a big deal.

Also...there is a D04 that is more advanced if you prefer to work on that material. Some folks work at many levels (like D02, D03, and D04) all at the same time. Good luck!

This is the best I could do. Click on YouTube in the bottom left corner, then click on donnasutliff.

Yes Mark this is maybe simpler for you, but question is do I want to download your video to my computer. Maybe I don't have the time or space, or fear of viruses or I just do not feel.

OK Donna, this is your video:

You just must put code after "..v=" from Youtube in this case code is "5pECwd9eCxc" and your link to video is:

Code: Select all
