Week 4: Tango Tempest 🌪️🎶

Welcome to the Main Thread for the fourth week of "Song and Dance" practice challenge! 

  1. 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. 🎼

  2. 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. 🎥

  3. 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! ↓

    It takes two to tango! 

    Here is a duet of Eric Phillips and I playing a minuet called, interestingly enough, In a Minuet

    I'd be interested to see if anyone has any guesses as to the composer or time period in which it was written.

      I just went looking through my filing cabinet and actually found the original score for this! This is the first of 3 pages. I wrote this in 1988 in a music theory class in college. This version does not have the minor section. At the top of the page it says "(C) 1988 SPUD". "Spud" was my nickname for a while because I had an electric guitar with body that looked like a big baked potato! 😂

    • Steve Pederson Eric Phillips Great performance, guys, and a really nice composition. Those harmonized lines are awesome and I love how the guitars never get in the way of each other which I imagine is hard to do.

      Blaise Laflamme yes, and I think the checkmark next to it is from the teacher indicating that I completed the assignment. I think "Opus 1" is probably a good name for the piece! 😉

      Steve Pederson Hey Steve,  That "Spud" guitar is vintage and hard to find these days.    I think Paul Reed Smith is planning to contact you to bring it back with updated electronics...

      Barney the "Spud" guitar was my first electric guitar - made by a friend of mine. It had this big huge heavy chunk of maple for a body. Also, that big blob of stuff on top of my head is called hair. 😅

    • Steve Pederson thanks for sharing this, very interesting! I'll try to find my 1st composition for classical guitar, it was in 1989, if I recall, and for a friend's wedding.

    • Steve Pederson Actually my first hunch was that you were the composer!  Good for you!  It’s charming!

      Steve Pederson wow! This is awesome! Its a really pretty piece. It sounds something from Romantic era but when Eric is involve, I could say late Barouque.

       

      Updated: Just saw the comments. Well done on the lovely composition!
