Yeah well, the only difference is that he was sure and I wasn't.
Get a smaller guitar and put your foot on the ground, you don't need a stool for classical position, they're pointless, just cuts off circulation in your leg and give you abdominal cramps. Since you're a beginner I'd recommend Elecrtic or Electric-Bodied acoustic, then when you've got the chops start playing a boat with strings.
As of right now, I'm still a sophomore in high school, but it's never too early...
I was looking over the requirements for auditions at FSU, and this is what they give on their website:
1. Major and minor scales (Segovia edition)
2. right-hand arpeggios
3. knowledge of entire fingerboard
4. adequate musical performance of such standard etudes as those of Aguado, Carcassi, Guiliani; selections from Sor Studies (Segovia edition); performance of minor works by Milan, Bach, Tarrega.
I've been working through the Segovia scales, and I'm assuming right-hand arpeggios is something similar to the Giuliani 120 or some other right-hand exercises I've been doing, so I don't think I'll have a problem with them when it comes time to audition. What I'm afraid of is the "selections from Sor Studies" bit... Will they just hand me a Sor Study and ask me to play it? My sight-reading is passable, but I can't see myself passing that unless I work through them all beforehand. Maybe I just have no idea how the whole thing works...
Maybe they are also available in Europe? If yes, I would be interested in the names.
^^^ Was that a joke response?
That sounds shit
A classical guitar is the most basic and standardized of form factors with respect to the instrument in general. Nylon strung guitars have kept pace with changes to the contemporary acoustic guitar, (cutaways, 14th fret neck joints, electronics, spruce as a top wood), but as these changes have been made, so would a purist argue it isn'a a "classical guitar" any more per se.
Your instructor is "first at the scene of the accident", so to speak, and he or she should be overseeing this issue.
There are a lot of people on the internet, talking a lot of smack about how much you need to spend for "street cred" on a guitar. These oftentimes are people who have the money, and enjoy telling others about it.
There are some fine instruments produced in Asia nowadays, and people sometimes mistake bling, brand, and country of origin as being necessities.
The irony is, the more you spend for a guitar, the more delicate instruments become.
That said, as long as you can set the "action" of your present to a comfortable point, I see no reason not to continue using your current guitar. As you improve, and perhaps even buy a better instrument, you'll find there's a lot of benefit to having a "beater" for day to day practice.
If your instruments are adjusted and sized in a similar manner, there's no justification for banging on a multi-thousand dollar guitar on a day in, day out, basis.
I'd didn't "proofread" your tab, but I did notice you've tabbed the song in a slightly lower key than it would typically be played. (I think).
I don't know about the cutaway and company but when it comes to resonance...It's supposed to be plugged in (it's a solid body, the sound hole is fake).
As for the fingerboard...you may be right. The most expensive classical guitars use exotic woods, but there are a lot of very good guitars (pricey too) that use rosewood.
Any more information/opinions?
also to follow the specific fingerings which are part of classical guitar music.
its much better and many times louder than a nylon string gutiar
So then you have to fret the 2nd fret on E-6 to produce an E on that string.
The drop D tuning taketh the E away, and your finger puteth it back.
This is Em in drop D
E-6 2 (0 in standard tuning).
I'm sure you know this, but that's just for the record.
i was referring to the allegro, do you think it's safe to repeat fingers on a piece like that?... i don't think so ...
So I've played electric guitar for about three years, and acoustic for a year and a half. However, I've had an itch to play classical because I want to introduce some serious discipline into my guitar life. Plus the music is just fantastic.
So I've been talking with the various classical guitar teachers around here, and I've settled on one that I'm starting with in May. Thing is, I need a classical guitar. Ordinarily, I'd go out shopping by playing a few guitars in a store. Can't really do that seeing as I don't really have any classical technique.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a solid classical guitar? Let's put a limit at 300 USD for now. Preferably new, but I'd look into used if that's the case.
EDIT: Just as a sidenote, does a steel string acoustic cause any serious complications for learning over a classical?
you can't repeat fingers on the right
Did you actually pay the ~300$ for Sibelius or does your college/school/uni have a copy?
What software did you use? (assuming those aren't real instruments)
