Home Country Hero Mini Challenge
Our musical journey continues! This month, we’re venturing into a challenge that pays homage to our roots. As each of us possesses a unique musical heritage, what better way to celebrate than by diving deep into the melodies that have shaped our cultures, identities, and histories? Let's embark on the "Home Country Hero Challenge" together and weave a tapestry of diverse soundscapes.
We invite you to record and upload a video of yourself performing a piece by a composer from your home country or your heritage. Dive deep into the traditions, styles, and stories that these compositions bring to the fore and enlighten us on how they resonate with your own cultural connection. Feel free to share a composition from another country than your own, if you have something that you deeply connect with!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Record a video of yourself performing your chosen piece from your home country. Upload your video to your preferred platform (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo, etc.). Share the link to your video in the comments section below. Along with your performance, narrate a short backstory of the composer and the significance of the piece in your culture.
Bonus Points: Share a link to a performance of your chosen piece by a renowned guitarist from your country!
INTERACT AND ENGAGE:
Let's travel the world through our strings! Engage with your fellow tonebuddies by leaving comments, offering constructive feedback, and expressing appreciation for their cultural revelations. Let’s connect deeper, not just through music but through our shared human stories.
While there's no tangible prize, the reward lies in the bridges we build, the knowledge we share, and the connections we foster with guitarists worldwide. You might just find yourself inspired by a faraway land!
READY, SET, EXPLORE!
We're keen to embark on this global musical voyage with you, uncovering hidden gems and rediscovering national treasures. Let's celebrate the diversity and richness that each of our musical heritages brings to the global guitar community.
HAPPY PLUCKING, TONEBUDDIES!
Something completely different from here. Annette Kruisbrink is a Dutch guitarist and composer (born in Amsterdam ). I am planning to practice her piece Ahimsa. To get to know her sound and language I tried some pieces from her educational series “ Knock before you enter”
these 2 pieces I chose are not too complicated, but with a bit melancholic, meditative mood, especially compared to Eric’s nice and groovy sound. Hope you’ll appreciate them anyway.
after this I’ll try to find something more lively.
I am trying to revive and refine this one from a previous challenge. This posting is fairly good but still has some roughness and stumbles to it. Overall, my playing of this piece has gotten a lot better, even if it is no apparent in this (or any other of my recordings). I think I should be able to make a good video by the end of the week.
