The main thing that is incredibly puzzling to me, is, why is there a bar of 8/4 than 9/4 at the start, but there only appears 6 and 7 crotchet beats in those bars, respectivley.

The 12/4 bar only seems to have 11 crotchet beats in it.

and the tupleted bars...

Crazy!

yeah I dont really get that either and there is actually even less beats because there are multiple voices notated

I have a feeling its arranged for bass string(s) and melody strings on a guitar.

Where did you get the music from? Are you sure its correct?

If you watch the video, there's one guy performing it on solo guitar.

^ I know, but it could have been arranged for a violin, it wouldent stop a guitarist for playing it.

I do see what you mean, it was a bit of a faceplam wasnt it?

yes its arranged for guitar and the notes are correct. not sure if the time signatures are correct

It's a guitar piece by Leo Brouwer called El Decameron Negro. It was written for guitar. Leo Brouwer is a great cuban composer I suggest you look up his writing for guitar, I find it interesting.


That guitarist needs to work on his vibrato. This piece is at least at superior conservatory level(way beyond what I can play now) so I can't tell you if the time signatures are correct. I can tell you the guy in the video is playing the piece correctly. Not to my liking but it's correct nonetheless.

that guy does a great job imo.... he has a huge sound which takes years to get right and he played it very musically.

Bah, I just don't like the way he played it. I've heard better versions. And I still think his vibrato is awful. He uses so much movement and effort in it but it hardly pays off, the pitch hardly changes.


I still can't help with the analysis.
