number 15 from
pieces by Fernando Sor,
is another example,
we've had two
other ones that
much a great
This is not so much of a melody
kind of texture or that, that kind of
It's really more anytime a voice enters
you have to really treat it as if it's
a melody unto itself.
The first repeat there really there is,
its just a single line until the final
measure but when we get into measure nine
that's where the counterpoint starts.
So what's a good thing to do, since this
is kind of, you know,
this may be an early example one of the
early examples for
you before you get to something like a
Bach Fugue or de Allende Fantasy or
even a vice that the D-minor prelude is to
really become familiar with the,
the, the method of practicing, or the
approach to practicing
counterpoint really for your ears as much
as it would be for your hands.
So for example, measure nine to ten
that stem down voice,
really get to know that as a melody.
It's really an imitation of the stem of
the of the upper voice melody.
It's doing exactly the same thing
melodically as the, as what just came
before it in another voice.
it's a good thing to actually play that.
So taking it out of the structure and
playing it with the proper, with the
proper inflection and
then, reinserting it back into the texture
trying to make it sound like that, just as
melodic as when you played it alone.
Like something like that,
and that's really the main,
the main challenge.
There's some fingering suggestions that I
have throughout that,
that may be different from the original,
example going from measure four to five
the third note of measure four.
This D here.
I'm playing closed with four on the fifth
And then again in the beginning measure
five, I'm closing that open D, making it
a, putting that on the fifth
fret of the fifth string, playing with the
fourth finger on the left hand.
So, you know, the, the, you'll see in the
right hand fingerings that,
just for the proper string crossing,
things of that nature you'll see in the in
in the fingerings in the study materials
this piece what I'm really going after
Okay, so that's number 15 and of the Soren
progressive studies this is 44.
