Miguel Angel Cherubito (*1941) MILONGA, movement 2 from “Suite Popular Argentina” (1989, dedicated to Narciso Yepes)

Played by Viktor van Niekerk, 10-string guitar

Standard tuning of the 10-string guitar designed by Yepes (afinación estándar de la guitarra 10 cuerdas):

7=C2 [the lowest string / la más baja]
8=A#2 / Bb2
9=G#2 / Ab2
10=F#2 / Gb2

SCORDATURA of the standard tuning for this piece:
6=D2
9=G2
10=F2

“The Milonga also comes originally from Spain and can be danced as well as sung. It resembles the Habanera but is faster-moving. There are two kinds of Milonga: the country version, which is sung and in which the interpreter improvises; and the town version, from Buenos Aires, which may be sung and danced. This is faster than the country version and may contain various themes: melancholy, romantic or amusing. The Milonga from my suite has a dramatic character and belongs to the country type.” (M. A. Cherubito)

The complete SUITE POPULAR ARGENTINA will be available later in 2012 on Viktor van Niekerk’s album “From the Antipodes (Guitar Music of the Southern Hemisphere)”.

I try to avoid looking backwards and still believe that the best is ahead of me. But when I find some sepia-coloured photos in a drawer, then it’s hard not to let the memories flow. And come the notes… Here is the result. A kind of slow, melancholic and bittersweet waltz. Something that our grandparents could have danced on. With the passing-time, the music also can turn yellow.

Thank you for watching.

Lagrima Explained – Part 1 – The Right Hand Technique (Tarrega School) – Classical Guitar Lesson

The music for this lesson is available at http://www.guitar69.com/videos.html

“Lagrima” by Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909) is one of the classical guitar’s most popular romantic pieces.

In this video, I demonstrate the right hand technique used in this piece – particularly the use of rest strokes, or apoyando.

Using rest strokes fluidly and creatively is one of the hallmarks of the “Tarrega School” of playing, represented by such great artists as Miguel Llobet, Augustin Barrios, Andres Segovia, Rey de la Torre, Oscar Ghiglia, Aldo Minella, Julian Bream, and John Williams – among many others. Please watch videos of these fine artists to see and hear how they use rest strokes in their interpretations.

Audio recorded with the Edirol R-09 HR mini – recorder

The best guitar interpretations of Naudo 3

Naudo is a musician from Brasil. He began to play guitar at five years age. He never went to any school or music conservatory. He learned to play guitar jamming with other musicians, and went digesting all musical styles.
Since 1993 he live on Tenerife Island, Spain where he work playing in jazz’s Clubs. His guitar is an semi-acoustic electric Alhambra

In music, interpretation or arrangement is either a rewriting of a piece of music with additional new material or a fleshing-out of a compositional sketch, such as a lead sheet, also refers to the process of a performer deciding how to perform music. The American Federation of Musicians defines arranging as “the art of preparing and adapting composition for presentation. An arrangement may include reharmonization, paraphrasing, or development of a composition, so that it fully represents the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic structure”. Orchestration differs in that it is only adapting music for an orchestra or musical ensemble while arranging “involves adding compositional techniques, such as new thematic material for introductions, transitions, or modulations, and endings…Arranging is the art of giving an musical variety to the melody”.
A song can be recorded with a different arrangements. As well as different instruments, the tempo, time signature and key signature may be altered, sometimes drastically so. The end result is a song that retains familiar phrases and lyrics, but offers something new. This practice was particularly popular in the late 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s… Well known examples of this include Joe Cocker’s version of The Beatles’ With a Little Help from My Friends, Ike And Tina Turner’s version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Proud Mary… The American group Vanilla Fudge and British group Yes based their early careers on radical arrangements of contemporary hits.
The guitar is a musical instrument with ancient roots that is used in a wide variety of musical styles. It typically has six strings, but four, seven, eight, ten, twelve and eighteen string guitars also exist. Guitars are recognized as one of the primary instruments in blues, country, flamenco, rock music, and many forms of pop. They can also be a solo classical instrument. Guitars may be played acoustically, where the tone is produced by vibration of the strings and modulated by the hollow body, or they may rely on an amplifier that can electronically manipulate tone. Such electric guitars were introduced in the 20th century and continue to have a profound influence on popular culture. Traditionally guitars have usually been constructed of combinations of various woods and strung with animal gut, or more recently, with either nylon or steel strings. Guitars are made and repaired by luthiers.

Before the development of the electric guitar and the use of synthetic materials, a guitar was defined as being an instrument having “a long, fretted neck, flat wooden soundboard, ribs, and a flat back, most often with incurved sides”. Instruments similar to the guitar have been popular for at least 5,000 years. The six string classical guitar first appeared in Spain but was itself the product of a long and complex history of diverse influences. Like virtually all other stringed European instruments, the guitar ultimately traces back thousands of years, via the Near East, to a common ancient origin from instruments then known in central Asia and India. It is distantly related with contemporary instruments such as the tanbur, setar, and the Indian sitar. The oldest known iconographic representation of an instrument displaying all the essential features of a guitar being played is a 3,300 year old stone carving of a Hittite bard. The modern word, guitar, was adopted into English from Spanish guitarra (German Gitarre, French Guitare), loaned from the Andalusian Arabic qitara and Latin cithara, which in turn was derived from the earlier Greek word kithara, which is related to Old Persian sihtar.

The modern guitar is descended from the Roman cithara brought by the Romans to Hispania around 40 AD, and further adapted and developed with the arrival of the four-string oud, brought by the Moors after their conquest of the Iberian peninsula in the 8th century. Elsewhere in Europe, the indigenous six-string Scandinavian lut (lute), had gained in popularity in areas of Viking incursions across the continent. Often depicted in carvings c. 800 AD, the Norse hero Gunther (also known as Gunnar), played a lute with his toes as he lay dying in a snake-pit, in the legend of Siegfried. By 1200 AD, the four string “guitar” had evolved into two types: the guitarra morisca (Moorish guitar) which had a rounded back, wide fingerboard and several soundholes, and the guitarra latina (Latin guitar) which resembled the modern guitar with one soundhole and a narrower neck.
