Welcome to the entry level series, this series is designed to show you several piece you may find in an admission exam for studying classical guitar. I will be gathering several pieces from the index of some well known educational books on this topic. Styles will go from antique music to romantic music. Unfortunately I will be unable to cover contemporary music due copyright matters.
This one is very simple dance, with very simple form, A-A, B-B. Both A and B 16 measures long with two parts of 8 measures each.
I play this piece in a kind of romantic way, but to play it in correct style I suppose that we should be more straight with the rhythm (it is a dance after all), this kind of romantic interpretation was very common during the first half of XX century (Segovia, Llobet, Anido, Presti, etc). I don´t think that in a admission exam will pick on you very much on interpreting form and style, but they will inquire that you can play the notes with reasonable ease on rhythm, volume, timbre and dynamics (the rest they can teach you once you are in, but often mechanical habilities are preferred as they are very hard to teach in the very elemental levels).
The idea of this is that you try to play this, and where you can´t get a good execution then stops and trying to figure out where is the mistake or the problem (it may be a bad fingering or a bad movement or both), if you can figure it out what's wrong, then ask me, that´s what I´m here for after all, I will try my best to help you. Have fun!.
