This is quite a bit more difficult to learn than Andreina, I'm on part 7 now.
Fair play to Tavi for producing this tutorial, you can see it wasn't easy to do.
I've finished online Uni at last after 6 long years so will have a lot more time now to learn songs and post videos. I'll post one just after finishing this piece and again in a few months when it's had some practice (and hopefully include Andreina if I can get bar 6 under control).
Has anyone else learned this yet?
I've messed up Bar 20 and completely forgotten about Bar 21-22, don't know how that happened but I'm going over the tutorial again to learn it properly!
Great job with Natalia and yes I agree it is much harder than Andreina....I did get through the score but no fluency and have been side-tracked learning other pieces...think that is my biggest problem continually changing what I am working on! I'll get back to it soon and also post Andreina update in the not to distant future.....but again well done!
The tricky end bit I struggle with where there's the option of using a bar instead, I might do that. I watched Ana Vidovic play it and that's what she does, good enough for me.
Ok here goes!
Painful in parts but after 1 week have to be fairly happy with it, just have to practice every day and wait patiently for it to improve.
The left hand moves much faster than any piece i've learned. I'll wait for your video for inspiration before I start it then :P good luck!
Hi Alex, after learning Andreina I had to learn this piece as well. When you watch Tavi's performance it does seem very difficult but now I've got over the hard part of remembering all the notes it's actually not that bad.
The first section that repeats I can almost play at the tempo Tavi plays, only obviously not as accurate. The two sections that follow I don't play as fast, still getting used to the chord changes and being able to grab them quicker. I'll give it another go today with a recording as I'm a bit happier with it now.
You play Cavatina very well I have no doubt you'd have no problem with Natalia. It's well worth working through the tutorials and being able to play this after. I agree with you that Tango might be more difficult again, I started on that but decided to leave it for a while, didn't get passed the first few bars!
you're pretty brave for taking that on.. to me it seems like the hardest piece on the site repertoire after maybe the Dyens tango. I won't start it for a while I think but how's it going? you could record your progress even if the piece isn't finished - if you make the video private on youtube then only linked viewers can watch it.
Not really worth sharing at the moment. I can play it through now but will have to give it at least a couple of weeks practice before it's anywhere near ready to record. I'm quite pleased with the first section, can play that fairly quick but the rest needs a lot of work to start building some tempo.
Mullenms you said you were working on this piece in your Andreina post, did you finish learning it? I'd also like to see another video update of how you've got on with Andreina. I'll record one as well and the video will show the difficulty I have with bar 6, don't seem to be making any progress with it.
Both tutorials are great additions, I've had a big sense of achievement from learning them and hope one day to be able to play them properly.
