I renewed my membership (I tend to do so periodically). Then I look for lessons that have arrived while I was gone. I then select those I consider very worthy. This one is.
Hi folks! Welcome to the lesson titled 'Skip this etude!'. This lesson is the first part of an etude composed for practicing string skipping.
The etude is written in F# minor key, using both the harmonic and natural scales.
There are two main pieces of the etude, both in F# minor, the first one starts on the first scale position, and expands throughout several positions, sliding from one to another. The second piece, uses only the fifth position. As you can see, both pieces use string skipping.
By incorporating some various sequences and melody lines, so to play this etude and make it sound right, you will need to learn to skip and to jump from one string to the other, with precision. To be able to do that, you will need to practice the etude part by part and with patience, and relaxed hands, building up speed from slow to fast... If that doesn't work for you, try doing some string skipping exercise, I will probably produce some of those in the near future. So, good luck! And remember: use metronome.
