Diario di bordo ( seconda puntata )

Visto il successo inaspettato della prima puntata
ecco la seconda puntata del mio diario di bordo :
riflessioni, domande e pensieri sul viaggio quotidiano
del chitarrista classico Daniele Magli.

Ovvero vi racconto un po' gli affari miei.

1) Sono appena tornato da Londra dove ho anche visitato il Museo delle Scienze:
che emozione trovarsi davanti il modulo di comando dell'Apollo 10:
ragazzi non scherziamo, è stato un sogno, ho pubblicato la foto sul mio facebook, fantastico.
E poi aerei della seconda guerra mondiale , i primi computer enormi, una bella esperienza davvero.

Sono anche tornato al Tate per rivedere Kandinsky ( c'è il mio quadro preferito )
Mondrian... Picasso...

2) In questo periodo sto elaborando nuove teorie su come risparmiare energie suonando
e nuovi metodi per insegnare le tecniche più difficili della chitarra classica :
se tutto va bene presto tutti i miei allievi saranno dei geni della chitarra.

3) Mi domando come mai tanti chitarristi insegnanti delle scuole medie e licei musicali
 ( certo non tutti , ribadisco non tutti, ma tanti )
siano noti chitarristi-schiappa... essere chitarristi schiappa e musicisti mediocri è il segreto per avere una cattedra in italia?
L'ultima volta che me lo sono chiesto mi hanno radiato a vita da un forum  : ))
 ma voi se volete potete iscrivervi a questo blog e dire la vostra opinione...

Intanto io continuo a domandarmi perchè se uno è noto per non essere mai riuscito nemmeno a tenere
 in mano una chitarra in vita sua e a suonare un pezzo in modo decente , perchè mai lo Stato italiano gli debba dare una cattedra da insegnante di chitarra... che sia una casta anche quella dei professori ??? o forse contano più le raccomandazioni che la bravura??? o detto forse eh ...

Tanto restano chitarristi-schiappa e anche i loro allievi lo sanno.

4)  Dopo aver composto Passion, Eclipse e Silent Era sto continuando a comporre ma al contempo penso che non farò video di miei pezzi per un po' di tempo : guardando il mio sito mi sono accorto di aver fatto i vedeo di 19 mie composizioni , mi serve una pausa di riflessione.
Vi ricordo che gli spartiti pdf gratuiti di tutte le mie composizioni sono a questa pagina del mio sito :
http://www.classicalguitarvideo.com/teachpag/danielemaglimusic.htm


5) Sto leggendo il bellissimo nuovo libro di Angelo Gilardino dedicato alla vita di Andres Segovia
non perdetelo, Gilardino è un genio quando compone ma è trascinante anche quando scrive.

Vi saluto e vi ringrazio e vi do appuntamento alla prossima puntata del mio diario di bordo

Classical Guitar Tabs : Parallel Universe

 
 
'Parallel Universe' is one of my Sci-Fi Studies for classical guitar.
The Sci- fi studies are compositions crossover with many influences from 70's rock music playing with classical or acoustic guitar.

Parallel universe is very funny to play but a bit difficult because the sixth string is tuned in D

Spanish Romance guitar tabs

However you call it this is the most famous classical guitar piece ,
Spanish Romance also known as :

Jeux Interdits
Forbidden Games
Giochi Proibiti
Romance D'Amour
Romanza
Romanza Anonimo
Estudio

and other ....

and its composer is anonymous but maybe was Antonio Rubira
a spanish guitarist: he was the first to publish Spanish Romance around 1900
under the title " Estudio ".


If you can not play it immediately I recommend you to play before my composition Twilight,
a piece I composed also as a preparatory exercise to Spanish Romance.
Twilight free pdf scores and guitar tabs are at my website :

Here is Spanish Romance, my arrangement, as I play in my YouTube video and as i like it

Come Memorizzare un Pezzo ( 1 )


Chitarra classica : come memorizzare un pezzo

Ciao a tutti !

Suonare un pezzo di chitarra classica a memoria e caricare il video su YouTube : ecco un grande piacere.
E poi così si allena la memoria musicale che migliora sempre di più.

Come certo saprete suonando la chitarra sviluppate la memoria visiva, quella del tatto, quella uditiva.
Certo è piacevole e utile anche suonare un pezzo leggendo lo spartito ma niente può sostituire il piacere di suonare a memoria.

YouTube è stato la realizzazione di un sogno per me : da quando c'è You tube io posso imparare a memoria un pezzo fare il video e passare a un altro pezzo.

...è molto divertente.

Ieri ho fatto il video di Bianco Fiore di Cesare Negri nell'arrangiamento di Andres Segovia.

Volevo fare il video in una sola ripresa ( di solito mi concedo al massimo tre tentativi , questo per
mantenere un effetto "Live" come se suonassi in concerto ) e ci sono riuscito.

Nella mia pagina ufficiale su You Tube ci sono adesso un centinaio di video che ho registrato dal 2005 a oggi :

http://www.youtube.com/user/danielmagli

Solo per Capriccio Diabolico e la Grande Ouverture di Giuliani ho dovuto suonare un mese prima di fare il video, esercitandomi sul pezzo per un'ora al giorno circa.

Diciamo che per i pezzi di più di 12 pagine di musica è normale che sia così.
Per i pezzi di 4-5 pagine mi serve una settimana di solito.
Per i pezzi come Bianco Fiore mi bastano poche ore, diciamo al massimo tre.

La mia memoria musicale è molto allenata , considerate comunque che da più anni suonate la chitarra
e più il tempo di studio si accorcia.

Una perfetta impostazione facilita la memoria : come chitarristi voi siete la vostra tecnica.

Per questo video di Bianco Fiore ho giocato anche a fare il regista : ho notato che ultimamente i miei video avevano tutti un'atmosfera blu così ho cercato di cambiarla in una più calda , color legno,
sfruttando anche il fatto che il sole andava e veniva, coperto dalle nuvole, spero che l'effetto vi piaccia anche se all'inizio il video è un po' buio.

Tornando alla memorizzazione voi dovete conoscere un pezzo fino a quando, come dico sempre scherzosamente, lo "suonate con le orecchie" invece che con le mani.
E' molto utile ripassare il pezzo per la strada o in treno, oppure guardando lo spartito senza suonare.
Immaginando le posizioni.

Come sempre più siete motivati a riuscire e più presto riuscirete.
come si dice in questi casi ? Siate folli, siate affamati.

Buon ascolto




Per quanto riguarda le mie composizioni io le imparo mentre scrivo i pezzi e quindi
appena ho finito sarei in grado di fare subito il video in dieci minuti.

Cosa successa per esempio per Child of the Sun una delle mie composizioni più
suonate dai chitarristi in giro per il mondo... anzi qualche chitarrista lo ha registrato
su YouTube superando la mia interpretazione :




Per concludere : suonate a memoria : suonare a memoria vi permetterà
anche nei momenti difficili quando avete solo dieci minuti al giorno
di restare in forma , in dieci minuti suonando a memoria potrete fare
i tre pezzi più difficili che sapete , mantenendo così il vostro livello !


Ciao grazie a tutti e visitate il mio sito con tutti i miei spartiti PDF

Guitar Tabs : Silent Era by Daniele Magli

First of all thank you for your many visits to my classical guitar blog from all over the world :
thank you very much !


This week I composed a new piece dedicated to silent cinema, the greatest films of the silent cinema :

Silent Era



the free pdf. scores is as always here :
http://www.classicalguitarvideo.com/teachpag/danielemaglimusic.htm


It is an easy ( but not too easy ) piece to play .
and i hope it is funny and a little melancholy as a piece blues played by the piano
when Buster Keaton took the blows in silence .



the right hand fingerin is : p,i,m,i,  a,m,i  a,m,i, a,m,i
and there is a legato/slurs with open strings after a , every time.
