Greetings my fellow travellers of The Way. Recently we've been looking at the importance of synchronizing those hands.. so here's your next exciting offering...

Task 36: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-guit...la-turca-part1/

I chose this mainly because it's musical and should be enjoyable and interesting to learn and play because it has strong melody behind it. As you can see, there's plenty of left hand work here which I'm very confident you can do. Some of the trills may give you a challenge and I don't mind if you leave them out for the sake of the performance smile.gif

The timing is important here.. and seeing as we're working on synching up the hands, you'll probably want to make this your priority after memorising the parts.

I noticed in the comments for the lesson, somebody mentioned an error in the tab but they also said where it was so hopefully you should be ok with that..

I hope you enjoy this one.. I look forward to hearing your takes !

Deadline is next Friday 12th October

Here is a first take @ 80bpm. Tried 90 bpm but it was way too sloppy dry.gif

This sounds really good. Although there's no backing I can tell the timing is really tight. I think you can manage a 90bpm !! smile.gif

Sensei, you got me with this one.. I'll give it another shot today. Though to record that 80bpm was very time consuming - don't expect it to be that clean biggrin.gif

Brilliant ! It was nice to hear it with the piano smile.gif

I think those mistakes where only a case of you just momentarily forgetting the lines.. not because you couldn't do it - so all good !!

1 Donut for you !! biggrin.gif

this is what I've got so far (110 bpm)


did a great job on pinky confidence for me so far.
guess full tempo is possible as well, main thing holding me back from higher speed is that thing in the beginning (first 5 notes and whenever this appears again) where my brain stops working on the string switching for some reason as soon as it gets fast.

might give it a break for now, as I can't stand even listening to this piece anymore after doing quadrillions of tries biggrin.gif

great job and have fun with your donut mad tongue.gif

Good take Adrian. I bet that made the fingers work hard !! biggrin.gif

Your hand co ordination was generally good. If anything, you slightly rushed in front of the beat for a lot of it so you could do with hanging back a bit and staying on the beat.

This has been a fun piece to play although like BTrain said you do get sick of it.
As I said I was learning Emir's version of this piece and I prefer it also so that's why mine sounds a little different.
I find this is easier to play fast than slow. Getting the notes even.
I struggled recording this as I'd always play the wrong part some where or forget where I was. One thing that helped me was to always play till the end even if I made mistakes. I remember a classical guitar teacher always had me do this because if you if you make a mistake while playing to an audience you can't afford to stop, you have to cover it up.

It's great to have you Mad and BTrain. You take's are great.

Hi Z-Master ! Very nice - check out those extra trills !! Mr Malmsteen in the house cool.gif

Like BTrain, watch out for going in front of the beat here and there..

You did really well considering it was at full speed. I apologise if this Task has kind of interfered with learning Emir's version. I'd like to hear that when you're done.. maybe share it with us or maybe it will be a REC ? smile.gif

Well done to everybody this week.. you've all uploaded takes and you all officially hate Mozart's Turkish March !! laugh.gif

thanks Ben

I knew I was ahead of the beat in a couple of spots.
it's gonna take a huge effort to play Emir's full version but it sounds like a good challenge. I doubt I'll get it REC level but.
Maybe I'll post it in here.

If you doubt it then you will be correct ! smile.gif It depends though, whether you want to get it REC level or not. If you're happy as is then that's absolutely fine but if you do want to do it then those phrases will reduce your chances and fulfil the prophecy of doubt.

Too deep ? rolleyes.gif

It was too deep wasn't it ? wink.gif

Man, I've gotta get out of this Temple and get some fresh air !! laugh.gif

No not to deep. My commitment to really playing at top level is my issue. I get songs and lessons to 90% and haven't pushed to getting the extra 10%. The REC program is good in that it's pushing us to play better. I think it's time I got back into the REC program.
Thanks Ben

Awesome, good to hear. We'd love to see you tearing it up back in the REC Zone as you know smile.gif
