Hi friends,
I know, it has nothing to do with piano and so may be it´s not the right place to put this thread on a site called "pianosociety". But since here are also some threads of a more private character, I have thought, may be there is someone, who likes also guitar-recordings, and I have an opportunity to picture myself as a (minor) guitarist to my friends here.
Guitar is only my second instrument. I had to study it as a minor at university, because every music-high-school-teacher has to study two instruments here. (Guess, what was my main-instrument?! The fiddle? :wink: :lol: )But it was my first instrument, I have started to learn in the age of seven. Piano I started to learn only with 12 years. Actually I´m not practising too much on guitar, but spend nearly all my time to practise piano. But now it came, that my mother wished some guitar-pieces played by me for her birthday tomorrow. So, I thought, it would be a good practise-possibility and an interesting experience to do some guitar-recordings (also from the editing-view). So, I have learned really a lot by doing them.

I´m playing three pieces on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sh3nHm6 ... annel_page (good old Bach, Bourée from the suite for lute, e-minor, BWV 996)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QT5gITIu ... annel_page (Leo Brower, Simple Etudes- Estudios Sencillos, Nr. 1)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC9EYnm- ... annel_page (John Dowland, "Come again")
(So, Chris, refering to your last pm, I have to say, that there are no hot folk-rhythms for you, alas! :lol: Though the piece of Leo Brower has some typical latin-rhythms like 3+3+2 and variations of them. )

I´m very interested in your comments.

OMG, Andreas - that's wonderful! I love guitar music! You play very well too. Really - I loved it!

Flute is my second instrument, but guitar is my third. Except I can only play three pieces right now. I have been wanting to learn more for a long time, but just haven't gotten around to it.

Thank you so much for putting this up. I love learning about members' other interests.

wow this is nice! I never would have guessed you play the guitar so well.

Was the bach/lute suite transcribed from lute to guitar? If so, who did the transcribing?

Is it common to play music for the lute on the guitar?

Hi Monica,
thank you very much for your interest and your kind comment. :D I´m glad you also like my guitar-recordings. So, when do I see your flute-videos here? :wink: (I´m just joking, knowing that you are a "piano"-lady and not a "flute"-lady, whereas I´m a "musicus"-blau, which includes guitar and piano, logical, isn´t it? :lol: )

Thank you for your interest and your kind comment, Stan. I´m really happy. :D

Quote:

The suites for lute are original-compositions of Bach. I´m playing a transcription for guitar by Karl Scheit. Lute and guitar is nearly the same. The lute is bigger, has more strings and a bigger convexity.

Quote:

Yes, it´s very common. Today only very few people play on historical lutes. Some famous guitarists have some re-buildings, f.ex. Andres Segovia and others.

Wow, Julius, I like the videos both very much, you have posted here. Thank you! :D
Especially the four hands guitar-video is so cool and super, that I´m totally "blown away"! (Sorry, I don´t know the right English expression for it, in german: Das hat mich umgehauen!)

Shake on it! I´ll look for a suitable easy guitar-duo. The audio-file I´ll edit in the usual way with my multi-track-window of Wave Lab. Would you like this? If it´s well, we´ll post it here in the General-Forum.

um....Andreas...I was kidding a little bit about that. Yes, I can play the guitar but not nearly well enough to play a duet with you. For one thing, I need to build up callouses on my fingers because my guitar has metal strings and it hurts like hell when I play with 'soft' fingers. Do you know what I mean?

Plus, I can really only play chords. However, I can play Stairway to Heaven, a Pink Floyd song, and about two lines of that popular Albeniz piece, but that's about it.

O.k., Monica, don´t mention! It was just a request and I didn´t know, how well you play the guitar. Yes, I know what you mean with the metal-strings. I only use soft strings, never metal strings, because I play on a classical concert guitar, not Western or so. And for a pianist, metal strings are really not the best. :wink:

I´m very happy about your interest in my guitar-recordings, thank you. :D

Andreas - go back to the 'book club' thread and read what Alfonso wrote.

Lovely performances ! Your guitar playing is as solid and polished as your piano playing. I especially liked the Brouwer piece which you play with much flair. An interesting composer, which I'm sure must have Dutch ancestry (the name being thouroughly Dutct). It doesn't seem like he's written any piano music :(
The Dowland and Bach pieces are very tastefully done though the Bourree rather loses his dancing character at this slow tempo.

I am very envious of you being able to play the classical guitar. I love that instrument and have always wanted to play it. Too late to start now, and too little time.

That 4-hands video is hilarious ! These guys are good, and I just love that kind of hillbilly folk music :)

No, I think Leo Brower hasn´t written any piano-music. What a pity, indeed. :!:

Yes, you are absolutely right with this. I´m not able to play the Bourée faster and stay accurately. I would have to practise more on it. So, I decided to play it properly and with nice dynamical differenciations in a slower tempo.

Well, it´s never too late for something, if it is a very deep wish of yourself, but you are right, it would take you probably some years to play it properly. (But may be a talent like you with good musical pre-knowledge could play well in two or three years under the condition, that you take weekly lessons. But it would take you some time from to practise piano, and I don´t suppose, that this is, what you want.)

You know, Andreas - on my run this afternoon, I was listening to my idop and heard a guitar piece that made me think of you. It's actually a piece I play in my car whenever I am going on a road trip. Perfect for when the weather is nice and I open up the the roof and the the windows, put on the cruise control, and crank up the radio. Here it is in case you want a something different. It's by an American band called the Doobie Brothers - one of my favorites.

Wow, that sounds really american. I really can imagine you sitting in a big american road cruiser with open cape hood driving a long hunderts of miles through a prairie, nothing than dust and sand, some cacti and bushes, rocks and mountains in background while listening to this music. That must be a special feeling, I think. :wink:

Thank you very much for posting this file. I like such music between for entertaining, and especially while driving car it´s nice to hear such music, because the noise of the motor is mostly too loud for to listen to classical music.

So, I burn it on a CD and switch it on when I drive with my old beetle-Volkswagen with open cape hood through the Odenwald, (with open hood only, if it´s not raining exceptionally). :lol:
(I have an old VW beetle, 1303 Cabriolet, built in 1976.)

My father would love you! We had VW Beetles all the time when I was growing up. I remember going on family vacations in the summertime; my mom and dad in the front seats, and my sister, brother and I in the back seats. Can you imagine that? There is not that much room back there! And I was the smallest so always had to sit in the middle on the hump. We drove all over the place too. Come to think of it, I'm not sure we even had air-conditioning.

How spoiled my own kids are because we drive much larger cars when we go on vacations, and most of the time we don't even drive, but fly and then rent a big luxury car at the airport.


I'm glad you liked that music. I have a lot of great 'traveling' tunes if you want any more. I listen to them when I jog too. Helps to keep me going....

Oh, that´s nice. When I was a child my parents also had VV Beetles all the time. First a gray "Ovali", they were built in the sixties and had a smal oval rear window. (The older ones of the fifties had still the small "pretzel"-window as rear window, but such an old one we ourself even didn´t have any more.) After this "Ovali" we had a green export-modell. This was the modell with a special nice bumper, rear and front. The bumpers had some additional metal bars. I don´t remember that a VW-beetle was ever built with air-condition. I don´t think so. For this it´s nice to have cabriolet. :wink: We, too, drove into vacations with this beetle, sometimes with friends (four or five persons) and all this was possible. Somehow it was always jovial.
Did you live in Germany, when you were a child or did your parents have the beetle in the USA?

Well, I think, too much luxury isn´t the right thing for children, too.

Yeah, I like this american folk- or western-music. If you like, you could send me more, thank you :D (but would this be legal?! :? ).

We had the beetles in the USA. My dad was big fan of them. I don’t know what models we had, but I do remember the white one we had. There were these giant flower decals that my sister placed all over the car. Decals are things that you pull the paper off the back and then the decal is sticky and can be stuck (applied) anywhere. The flower decals we had were approximately 10 inches in diameter, multi colored, and we had dozens of them on the car. Talk about a hippie car! Still can’t believe my parents went for that. I didn’t think they even knew of the band, The Grateful Dead. :lol:

You’re right – it probably is illegal. I’m going to take off that attachment up above right now. The other pieces I have are not really western-music, but more just kind of hard-driving, kick-ass stuff that I like. I have no problem sending mp3’s by email. Who’s going to know, right? I have an idea about a few pieces that you may like or may just make you smile. I’m thinking Elvis, Pfish, Korn, Harry Belafonte, Steely Dan, Beetles – I mean Beatles haha – stuff like that. I have a sort of weird taste in music sometimes, and we all know how musical taste is very subjective. I'll send you a couple mp3s, so look in your email shortly.

Very nice! Might even be enough to get me practicing classical guitar again. :lol: Seriously, I am enjoying your playing tremendously. I play electric guitar mostly, but I really need to get back to classical some more. :D

Hi Horowitzian,
if I would imagine Horowitz with an electric guitar, I would get probably a true shock. :shock: :lol:
I´m just joking with you, of course, now seriously, thank you for your kind and encouraging comment. I´m happy to have inspired you to practise eventually on classical guitar.
I´m practising on some Chopin-Nocturnes at this time, too, and on the Scherzo nr. 3, c sharp minor (, of which is still a recording of myself on this site), because I´ll play some Chopin-pieces (and Mendelssohn and Bach) in a recital in this summer. So, have much success and I´ll listen to your recordings, if you´ll post them in AR.

Thanks, I will hopefully have a few recordings this fall, and I'll post them if I can. I am actually moderately advanced on classical guitar; if I would practice, I'm sure I could really improve. I may pick it up later today. :)

I listened to your a few of your piano vids as well, and I enjoyed them just as much. Especially your Bach. I'll check out the Scherzo, since I recall seeing it on your channel.

Horowitz with an electric guitar certainly would be interesting. :lol: FWIW, I tend towards jazzy stuff and country style chicken pickin' on electric, rather than the overdriven distorted kind of stuff.

What a pity, and I thought you could play me The Star Spangled Banner in the Jimmy-Hendriks-version. :lol: (Just kidding.)

I have this program, too, so, I´ll try some experiments next time, too.
It´s 00:23 am here now, so I´m going to bed.

Hope, I´ll sleep well in my Bettgestell! (german "Bettgestell" means engl.=bedframe)

Isn't Photoshop wonderful? I like Horowitz's taste in guitars. :D I'd love to have the original image too, if you could provide it. :)

What a pity, and I thought you could play me The Star Spangled Banner in the Jimmy-Hendriks-version. :lol: (Just kidding.)

I'd try, but would probably fail miserably. :D

Sleep well!

I just went to Google - images and typed in Vladamir Horowiztsz and then asked for only large-size images. Try it - there were many other nice photos of him as well.

How do you do that? I didn't know you could specify image sizes. :?:

Hi Horowitzian,
I think, I have found at least a similar picuture for you. You have to google "images", then you´ll be leaded to the google image search, there you can specify sizes of images.

Jimmy Hendriks failed miserably, too, in his attempt to play the Star Spangled Banner, so don´t mention. :wink: :lol:

sorry guys, I just saw this. To get a larger image, simply go to Google Images and then go to the 'advanced image search' and click on whatever size you want. I may try fooling around with a large Chopin or Granados image and put myself into the photo too, like I did this Horowitz thing. Wouldn't that be funny? :lol: (probably only to me :wink: )

This would be very funny, Monica, so at least we could unravel the mystery, who are your favourite composers, isn´t it? :lol: (Just kidding.) No seriously, it would be funny. If I find some time, I will do some experiments, with Adobe Photshop, too.

Here is me on a little trip. My beetle fortunately is the one in the foreground, not the one in the background. And I have my old friend with me to get some inspirations. :lol:

That's funny, Andreas. Now what you should do is get Bach to actually be sitting next to you in the car. There is a way to do that with Photoshop. That's how I got Horowitz's hand to go around the guitar neck.

p.s. cute Beetle!

That´s exactly what I wanted to do at first, but I couldn´t find out, how it works. Could you give me a brief explanation?

Thanks, Monica. Today we have made again a nice family-trip with it. :wink:

Uh oh - now I'm in trouble. I couldn't do it either and asked my son to help me. :oops: :lol:

He did it so fast that I couldn't see what he was doing. I'll get him to explain it to me and then I will pass along the information to you. But really, I foresee myself having way too much fun once I know how to do this stuff. :wink:

Thank you, Monica, I looked a bit at Adobe Photoshop, but the handling seems quite complicated to me. I´d use some hours to find it out just by "trial and error"-method. For this I would be happy about some advice. I also have much fun with such things. :wink:
