Week 3: Fingers on Fire
Welcome to the Main Thread for the third week of "The Transcriptions" practice challenge!
- Make sure you've read the guidelines before replying!
- Watch the kickoff livestream!
Pick a transcription that was originally composed for another instrument, like piano or violin. Don't be afraid to choose a challenging piece or explore works from composers you haven't played before.
Commit to practicing daily and share your progress with the community. Aim to practice every day and post at least two videos per week showcasing your progress. This will help you stay motivated and accountable, and also allow you to share your transcription journey with others. Whether you're tackling a complex piece, refining your skills with a piece you already play, or experimenting with new playing techniques, the community is here to support you and celebrate your achievements.
Share your favorite piece that you would like to see transcribed or your favorite recording of a transcription. This will not only inspire others in the community but also provide a rich resource of ideas for everyone to explore. Plus, it's a great way to celebrate the creativity and artistry involved in adapting music from one instrument to another.
↓ Happy Sharing! ↓
Debussy - The Girl with Flaxen Hair (Final Version)
I will make this my final recording of this piece for this challenge. With the Llobet mini-challenge, and now the Spanish Music mini-challenge, I'm not digging into this Transcription challenge with my usual gusto. Still, I'm glad to be able to add this beautiful piece of music to my repertoire.
