HVL - Choros No. 1
In this recording I go over each of the three sections (A, B and C) just once. The form of the song is A-B-A-C-C-A. I just play A-B-C and my video is 5 minutes long! If I took all the repeats it would be at least 15 minutes! I don't want to put you through that.
This is just an update on my progress. It's slow in the going, but I believe I have all of the fingerings - both right and left hand - finally figured out.
There is one chord voicing in the B section that involves a pinky stretch up to the 7th fret that I just cannot physically do without damaging my hand, so I made an adjustment and took one of the notes out of the chord to make it manageable for me.
And, how about that camera angle?
