Lesson 3: the pool and hammer, gamma C major, evil eye (y. malmsteen)

Well, how is «Flight of the Condor’? Turned out? Well.
failed? Let’s deal…

“El Condor Pasa». Analysis.

Every new piece that we will learn, play hard. If it was just to play, then you would already know how what it is intended to teach, that is, to play it would not necessarily. So not to worry in difficulties no, we just them in this school and will learn to overcome.

Each piece consists of «phrase»as the text – of the proposals. Between phrases (which, in turn, consist of notes), as a rule, there is a pause. That is, ‘it’ solo instrument sounds with the arrangement.

to play the whole piece in General, it would be nice to be able to play each phrase separately. If a phrase does not work, then you can slowly at first to play it without the metronome, hands to remember the sequence of movements, then, when this happens, turn the slow metronome and start practicing the phrases in the correct rhythm. The pace should be such that every note was confident and well. If the phrase is already acquired, can slightly increase the pace and work on, should be a little hard, but play. Thus, gradually increasing the pace, we come to the tempo of the original. And so we have to work difficult with each phrase separately (if any), and/or with the entire track at once. Go for it! And how you play the thing in full and in the original tempo, you can proceed to the next (see below).

Pool and hammer.

Sounds it is possible to extract not only the right hand. Hold on one string of the first and second frets, as in chromatic exercise. Remove the sound will sound the second fret), then it ’sternite» finger, clamping the second fret (sounds first). The finger must be from the neck and down a bit.

the Reception that you have just performed is called the «pool» (pull-off). Now remove the sound mediator (you will hear the first fret), and then abruptly push the string on the second fret with another finger (you will hear the second fret). This technique is called «the hammer» (hammer-on).

In the tablature (and music) they are indicated by an arc connecting notes, «the League», from which a sound is called «Legato» (as the pool and hammer):

If you take note of the mediator, and then alternate the pool and hammer, you get a «sound»:

Exercise Legato.

so, we met with a new technique, it is necessary to work. Consider this exercise: first, hold the first finger first fret of any string (easiest — third), remove the note, and the second finger start a series of pools and hammer, so that the result is a trill:

the Second finger will move along the trajectory resembling a flattened ellipse (see photo):

To from his active movements did not sound the neighboring casually touched the strings, you can mute them, putting them loose fingers of the right hand, or the middle finger and the mediator, respectively (see photo)

When the second finger will fizzle out, make the last hammer and leave it on the second fret, let it clamps. Remove the second fret of the mediator, and in the fight enters the third finger, which will also play a trill, but already another:

the First finger when not shooting! And finally, when the third finger will get tired, it will be the turn (Oh, the horror!) the little finger. You know, hard. But it is necessary.

Try to play all trills are not very fast to every sound has been removed due to strong shock/pulling, but not at the expense of speed. If not removed, try, but not accelerate. Over time it will bear fruit.

Gamma C major.

so, the music consists of notes. This suggests that different notes can be certain sequence, or, so to speak, of the Association. Now let us do it. More precisely, we have engaged in.

some notes we already know, namely: do, re, mi, FA, Sol, La and si. They all together make up the range, then there is a sequence of notes. And gamma this is called «major». Why is it so – we will understand later, but for now take for granted.

this Range will also have to play, it works well on stretching a left hand, the independence of the fingers, and in the future will be useful.

Want to note that almost all of it is played in the canonical fingering (remember, Yes: one finger – one way), with the fifth string at the third inclusive it is played in the second position (that is, the first finger is responsible for the second fret), and the first and second strings – already in the third position. Note! On the sixth string will be rastrick to play and the first and fifth frets, keeping the other fingers. Yes, without lifting, as played gamma as well as chromatic exercise: the fingers are removed from the string only when it is fully finished.

Evil Eye (Y. Malmsteen).

If you already know who Yngwie Malmsteen, don’t worry. And if they don’t, then know that it is a Swedish guitarist, hammy classics and famous throughout the world neiskoristeni the tunes. But we’ll take more calm his work. If you have already played gamut, played «El Condor Pasa”, it is time to move on to more serious things.

All works Yngwie are canons «neo», the genre, the name of which decoding is not necessary, and one of these works (or rather, themes from it) will be enough for the first meeting with this direction of music and creativity of the Malmsteen. If you are interested in, listen to his «Trilogy Suite Op.5”, we also play the game. But later on. And now let us return to the topic of «Evil Eye». To play it you need a variable stroke position indicated by the Roman numerals above the staves, fingering canonical, except for the times specified explicitly (the numbers under the tablature correspond to the numbers of fingers, clamping current mood). Oh yeah, you also need file with tablature! Here it is: download file

Play slowly at first, then under the metronome and slowly too, and as you feel confident, you can slightly faster. But too slowly. And so, gradually, podbirayas to a normal pace. Progress in the development of neo-classical!
