  • Hello everyone. Today I come with more Fernando Sor Op 9, this time we'll play variation number 5. It's a difficult and virtuoso variation. What makes it difficult is coordination with both hands. With the left hand, play each position alone, and practice relaxation between every switch. Try playing the E major scale by thirds all over the 1st and 2nd string, then add a slur on second string. After that, practice playing the E major scale over 1st string with just your first finger, do it with different rhythms.

    The right hand fingering is not too difficult, just remember to play the second string lighter than the 1st one because the melody is on that string. You can check the fingering in the standard notation score.

    I included several backing tracks, at full speed, 75%, 50%, 25% and a jam track, a jam track on a classical piece! I made a jam track over the harmony of the first half of the variation using a tango groove and a little reharmonization. Don't worry, you still can play over the chords of the main video and it should sound ok.

    Hope you like it!
