Week 2: Ballads and Barcarolles
Welcome to the Main Thread for the second week of "Song and Dance" practice challenge!
Choose a piece that is inspired or transcribed from a song or a dance. It could be a lively south-american danza, a passionate tango, a serene romantic lied, or a poignant aria transcribed for the guitar. You're welcome to explore pieces from unfamiliar composers or challenge yourself with a complex work.
Commit to daily practice and share your journey with the community. Aim to practice every day and upload at least two videos each week to illustrate your progress. This will not only help you stay committed and encouraged but will also allow you to share your musical voyage with our tonebase family.
Share your favorite piece or recording that embodies the theme of "Song and Dance." Your submission will serve as an inspiration to others and create a vibrant pool of potential pieces for other members to delve into.
↓ Happy Sharing! ↓
BWV 996 Courante ....still a rough draft Darn it!
I have been working on reviving this piece since I posted it in the February Love Challenge. I thought I just about had it down when my nails finally gave out. Nailless really destroyed this for me until this week. I am hoping I can get cleaned up in the next 2 weeks.
The trills are pretty good here, still need work, however, I am encouraged. My balance, phrasing and articulation still need a lot of work. Really botched the first section B but the repeat was better.
