how to compose for classical guitar

Many people ask me "how I compose a piece of music for classical guitar?"


I do not have the answer for inspiration, do not know what is genius, and where they come from musical ideas.
 
since I was 14 years old I had in mind as it should be my composition for classical guitar.
 
So I felt the bass continuum and the open strings but I could not do any thing good.
 
composing music, is to be a musician, and you need to know music theory
and harmony, you have to know the history of music and the repertoire of the classical guitar from Mauro Guliani to Angel Gilardino so one day you will be... Daniele Magli!
 
You'll be yourself with your musical ideas.
 
 
The first pieces of music that I have composed I did make Pdf scores from my friend and teacher of classical guitar Graziano Zuin and then by my friend Davide Cosmo ( he is also the webmaster of my guitar website )
 
I gave them the manuscript of my compositions and then they made ​​the Pdf score.
 
But then I figured out how to use the program and I do myself  Pdf musical scores of my compositions.

I am a famous classical guitarist ?

First of all  I thank the guitar teacher Mr. Francois Delcamp
for introducing me to the site Fandalism.com so
now I have a  guitar page there :

And now the topic of the day :


for me it is amazing to think that until 2005 I was an unknown guitarist, and now so many people watching my videos or they play my compositions,
and they learn from me to play the classical guitar on my free  guitar website :

Unfortunately, I also had some minor problems on the Internet in a  italian guitar forum
where 7 small envious troll ( i call them "the seven dwarfs" ) have tried to ruin my reputation with every kind of lies and slander.
Then I discovered that some of them work as classical guitar teachers because they are "recommended" ( how do you say in English," Raccomandati", "pull strings for", "enchufar", "pistonner"... so they steal jobs to those who deserve to teach classical guitar...
 they steal the Italian Job !!!!)

Among them was a guy who after having criticized  my interpretation of "Grande Ouverture by Giuliani" he traded a harp for Andres Segovia. And he's the best of the group.

So I say : do not believe everything you read about me on the internet or guitar forums, because it could be as simple envy.


But, apart from this unfortunate episode in the Italian guitar forum, my experience on the internet and in particular on YouTube is exciting and satisfying.

I have not yet learned English well but thanks to the classical guitar I can communicate with the young guitarists from all around the world.

This is great!

my Youtube page has had  1,888,136  views and I have  970 subscribers !
What are you waiting for ?

in short, whether you are my fans or my troll, or envious or my friends , or that you are "the seven dwarfs from the italian guitar forum" or my supporters ... thank you, thank you all for the attention you give to me, this is more then success!

or maybe... I am now a famous classical guitarist ?

Come scegliere un maestro di chitarra classica

Oggi ho provato a leggere un forum italiano di chitarra e ho visto quante sciocchezze riescono a dire i maestri di chitarra classica dilettanti e improvvisati.

è necessario affidarsi solo ai consigli di un musicista professionista però...

in questo stesso forum molte sciocchezze si leggono spesso anche dai "veri insegnanti" di chitarra classica delle Scuole Medie o dei Licei Musicali, che a volte sono solo dei gran raccomandati
e la chitarra classica per questi soggetti è solo un mezzo per ottenere uno stipendio sicuro.

Alcuni di loro frequentano i forum di chitarra classica per incrementare le entrate facendo affari vendendo le loro composizioni e i loro libri : fingono di aiutare chi comincia a suonare ma il loro vero scopo è il business.

Insomma per questi e altri mille motivi purtroppo dai forum di chitarra si può imparare molto poco
 e trovare un maestro di chitarra classica è necessario.


ma allora come scegliere un maestro di chitarra classica ?


Prima di accettare qualcuno come vostro Maestro di chitarra classica assicuratevi che :


1) sia diplomato al Conservatorio.

2) abbia fatto concerti, dischi, incisioni, o almeno un video su YouTube ( almeno uno, dai! )

3) che vi piaccia il suo stile, il suo modo di suonare... questo è importantissimo !
