Prelude from BWV 999 in D minor (J.S. Bach), Classical Guitar Solo

Happened to wear in Steve Jobs style before I heard the news at night…

………………………………………………………………………………………………..

This is an excellent piece of music and superb for right hand arpeggio practice too.

There are some tricky places, especially when we don’t use slurs at all.

I put the strings on about 3 month ago. I used my nail polish sand paper to polish the 1st string (around the sound hole) right before this recording.

Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750)

Guitar: ROMERIGO S 01, 罗美里哥 S 01(2010)

Strings: Luthier Concert Silver Set 30 (3 months old)

Microphone: Rode NT4 Stereo Condenser Microphone + Zoom H1 Handy Portable Digital Recorder

Camera: Samsung TL350 / WB2000, 5x Optical Zoom Digital Camera

In the 1st video, I played F base at measure 23.

Same guitar and strings

Microphone: Rode NT4 Stereo Condenser Microphone + Sony MZ-RH910 Hi-MD

Etude in E minor, Op.60 No.19 (Matteo Carcassi)-2, Classical Guitar Study

This is a excellent piece of classical guitar study. It’s good for right hand arpeggio practice in particular.

The melody is so obvious in this study that we need to ring the melody clear and long lasting. For the right hand, Alternating i & m fingers is a bit challenging. Make sure to keep the correct rhythm of the middle voice. Don’t play longer or shorter. Also need to keep the right hand steady and relax. That’s reason which focusing on right hand practice practice is necessary in the study.

For the left hand, there are two big jumps to the 7th fret full bar, one in the middle, another toward the end. They are not easy to do. My tip is that if we can’t bar the whole chord at the same time, then make sure the index finger of left hand position first. Do the other fingers later. For the left hand finger 1, we don’t have to bar all 6 stings tight. The 1st and 6th strings are the key. The stings in the middle are not that important. Hope this will help.
