The Chaconne is considered by many to be the greatest piece of music ever written. Its also considered on of the most difficult to play. But as you can see the genius of this piece is in the development.
I'm going to bring you through this piece little by little so, if your with me from Belgium or Spain or parts in between, stay tuned. #1 as usual, stay with Tarregas' left hand covering 4 frets ( or more) ( See the Tarrega method by Pujol) seriously I don't care who you see with their thumb over the neck, its the same as riding your bike with no hands , You can do it but do you want to be in a down hill race without steering? And yes I can play with my teeth but not while playing the Chaconne. (inserting dry humor)
#2 ALWAYS PUT DOWN BOTH FINGERS OF A SLUR WITH MORE WEIGHT ON THE NOTE YOU ARE PULLING OFF TO.
#3 memorize the chords, the development of this music is based on the opening chord structure. think of them as #1 chord #2 chord #3 chord etc if you don''t know the chord names ( #1 is d minor by the way) Remember you haVe A 6TH STRING TUNED TO D
that means the G on the 6th string is now on the 5th fret and the Bb is on the 8th fret. Alos remeber that you are in Bb or d minor ALL B'S ARE FLAT UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED
OK, that my lecturing NOW enjoy its not that tough if you are in position stay that way and you can enjoy the feeling of this awesome music peace, health and abundance "PLAY FOR YOURSELF FROM YOUR SOUL" james Hunley www.theacousticexperience.com
