One of the most common pieces a lot of people start out with is the BWV999 prelude in Dminor (originally C minor).
It seems that many teachers pass this piece on to students as an introduction to the classical guitar.
Personally – I couldn’t disagree MORE with this approach as it is certainly no where near a beginner level piece and there is a great deal of technical work required before anyone should be ready to play this piece.
That being said – one of the things that really got me when I worked on this piece was the monster stretch in measure 15. It’s huge and you really need to take some time working it out.
While browsing through my classical guitar feeds this morning I found this video discussing exactly that – hope you guys enjoy!
This guy states that he doesn’t have the piece performance ready, but he has obviously done a fair amount of research and spent some time on this stretch so hopefully it will help some of you out!
