It sure does sound familiar.
Are you sure this is a piano piece?
I remember this tune played by strings.

I'll keep it humming and when I come across that tune, I will post it!

I don't know why my Japanese doesn't show.
I can read yours.
Maybe because I use Mac?

Oh, a competitor!
Just kidding. It's a such a famous piece and a good introduction to finger picking style, so I wouldn't be upset.

Hi, Spider!

Well, it will take a series of serious courses to explain counterpoint theory..

But, if I make it really simple, it will be something like this:
1. Compose one line (single part) music. (or, you can borrow a line from someone else's)
2. Add another line that goes nice with the first one.
When doing this, the intervals between two lines creates tension and release.
Dissonant intervals, such as minor/major seconds, tritone, minor/major seventh, have tension,
and they need to be prepared by consonant intervals and released into consonant intervals.

Examples:

--------
---0-1-
-2-----
-3-3-2-
--------
--------

sounds better than:

--------
---0-1-
-2-----
-3-2-0-
--------
--------


The intervals between two lines are:
The first one: major 3rd - tritone - minor sixth
The second one: major 3rd - perfect 5th - minor seventh

The first one has tritone as a dissonant interval. It is prepared by the consonant major 3rd, which has the same bottom note with this tritone.
And this tritone resolves into consonant minor sixth.

The second one has minor seventh as a dissonant interval. It is not prepared, because none of the notes are not in common with the previous ones.
It ends with dissonant intervals.
That's why it does not sound right.

There are many other rules and exceptions, but I think these two examples will give you an idea of what it is like.

I found Wikipedia explains counterpoint well.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterpoint

Good luck!

Hey quick question about classical guitar,

is it common practice to use a capo on nylon strings?

does it damage the strings when you do?


I'm thinking about getting a classical guitar, and the pieces that i have come up with, that I play on electric, use a capo and I wasnt sure if I would be able to play them on a nylon stringed guitar or not.


Thanks,

Chris

Kosei, I just wanted to say that your classical guitar lessons are great... And it would be nice if you made a lesson about some Chopen's piece.. If that's possible of course (I'm aware that almost all of his compositions are composed for piano) laugh.gif

Chopin is one of my favorite composer. I have not played any of his piece, but I will look into that. Thank you!

Hi Kosei,
I am planning to buy a Godin Multiac Grand Concert Duet, what do you think of it, it has the pickups and an internal microphone, will that make it sound as classical as possible when amplified.
I would like to hear your opinion before taking my desicion.

Hi!

I have not tried Godin Guitar.
Among the ones I have tried, I would recommend Takamine for Classical sounding guitar with a built in microphone.

Yeah that's what I wanted to asked you as well. I think there are very few Chopin transcription for guitar. I love Chopin, I own a great CD. It is a Cello and Piano Duo; it is absolutely beautiful. My favourite is his Nocturne in C sharp minor...I really really love it !!!I don't know if it could be played on classical guitar well but maybe you will soon come up with some great Chopin lesson...Thanks for your great lessons so far....and check that out guys: (Everybody who has seen "the pianist" probably knows that piece...) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUIPN9_UOAs...feature=related
