Guardame Las Vacas by Luis de Narvaez.
This is an, a Spanish renaissance piece,
very popular with guitarists.
And really just just, it's a great piece
because it gives you a lot of scale
passages in combination with base notes.
And it' a good it's a good fundamental
piece to study for
that and also there's another challenge
that I want you to notice.
In the performance lesson on this piece.
Notice that at the it's basically a
Notice at the last variation, or excuse
me, the last measure of every variation,
aside from the final, aside from the final
variation which is something of a kind of,
like a coda that's added, a four measure
coda that's added to the end.
Notice that it's an entire measure held
with a dotted dotted whole note,
and note that, you can tell even in the
performance that I'm,
I'm very much keeping time for the whole
Do not fall into the trap of, again,
of an, as I've mentioned in other lessons,
Your next variation or your next passage
much that you end up losing time or, or
So that's really the main the main thing I
think in terms of the rhythm.
Otherwise when you're playing the rhythms
are fairly easy.
You'll notice that again in this sixth
beat, sixth quarter note measure.
That certain measures can feel as if
they're in three beats per measure
in other words three three grouped into
three half notes per measure.
Or sometimes the measure can feel as if
it's almost a six four measure.
Three beats, excuse me two half, dotted
half note beats.
So that the, the six quarter notes are
grouped into two dotted half notes,
providing a, a larger two beat feel.
One and two and as opposed to the three
which would be one and two and three and.
So, have fun with it.
I, recommend the, the Frederick node is a
perfectly good addition to use from this,
as that anthology contains many wonderful
Renaissance, pieces in it.
That's a book that went through when I was
a kid, growing up in Buffalo and
studying, and I loved reading through this
I hope that you'll enjoy studying it as
well and send me your videos.
