TheMusicalEvents My homepage is: How should I go exactly about studying how to play an etude? It was also easy to me to make the bass “sing” and play the accompaniment softer.

I’m a bit of bbrouwer Brouwer fan There are two stages to learning and using a study such as this Brouwer: When the sun shines, bask.

This estuudios what the piece reduces to, if you take out the arpeggiation and just consider the chord changes in fact, only the filled notes senclllos to be fretted, the others are open strings: And these pieces don’t always focus upon the “traditional” areas of technique of earlier guitar studies, such as right-hand patterns and left-hand scales and chords.

The Estudios Sencillos by Leo Brouwer: How simple are they? – Classical Guitar

The first 5 studies were good at this level, but Study 6 seemed to be a bit of a stretch. Thank you for posting a review! Also, isolated practise of bars across the change of time-signature helped me greatly, as here it is difficult to damp the semiquaver open E bass note at the end of bar 22, so that it doesn’t ring under the open A in bar Brouwer himself suggests an alternative picking pattern see belowat the start of the piece, but you could also experiment with: The notion of “Easy” or “Simple” studies is one that goes back to the classical period, when composers fo the guitar and other instruments would publish pieces with this kind of descriptor in the title.

Similarly, once one starts to play the piece with the right-hand arpeggiation, it is a good idea to make “mini-exercises” from any changes that are difficult, in order to fluently change between bars measures. Other recording recommendations can be: If thumb sound is still weak at this point, he may spend a lot of time just working on thumb sound, teaching ways to shape the nail, to attack the string and so on.

Recently I heard a recording by Ricardo Cobo – he plays most of it quite fast. This is then real study and not just playing In particular, it is useful to “maximise” practice time, by paying particular attention to those chord changes which one finds most difficult, and repeating these correctly in order to learn them fluently.

From the first to the last, they each focus upon an important aspect of classical guitar technique, while also always being satisfyingly musical compositions.

However, in order to learn the piece, to allow this kind of practice, it may be easier to first take this aspect of the piece away, to make it quicker to learn to play the whole piece fluently. Please also consider introducing yourself here.
