I want to play like that!!!!!!

damn, I wish I can play like her... time to dust off my guitar!


  • I'll have to practice too ... I doubt I can play like that any more ...

    Any idea what the piece of music is called. I'm a memeber of a music library in Perth and might be able to find the piece if i go looking for it.

    [And YES, I am classically trained ... so everythin she is playing was 100% possible for me when i wa younger and used to play that sort of thing.].

  • practice and keep on practicing i guess.. and since you are classically trained, you can get it right in time..

    Sorry, I'm a fan of classical guitar but I'm bad at remembering classical piece's name.. the tittle of that clip is Paganini - Caprice Nro. 24
    if that help much..

    how long does it take you to master classical? I'm thinking of taking classes since you can only learn so much by yourself..

  • 'Paganini - Caprice No. 24'

    That's a lot of help! That's the name of the piece! lol

    I'll have a look next time I'm in the music library. I might have a look through my Classical books to see if I have a copy of that piece already.

    Thanks. ;-)

    Mastering Classical will depend on the person and that.

    I got to fifth level in a year (starting from scratch), but that takes most people about five years ... just lots of practice, and wanting to be good ...

    I'm probably back down to abotu fifth level, as I never practice anymore ... most days I don't even look at my guitars or touch them ... but that's not because I don't want to ... that's just because I am busy annoying people on their blogs and blogging and stuff!

  • wow, takes you only a year to get into fifth level?... five years.. ouch, that's long but I'll try to learn... don't know how long it would take me.

    practice until my fingers bleed!!!

  • Fingers BLeed? Owww.

    Actually, I'll tell you a few funny stories about FINGERS -

    When I had to sit an exam for music, I accidentally slammed my index finger in the car door! OUCH! I lost the fingernail and bleed everywhere ... it was a painful recital! Ow~! Ow! Ow!

    Because it was the right hand too, which was the fingernail used for plucking the string i became difficult, as I had to pluck the string with the finger which was in lots of pain! Ow Ow Ow!

    Other funny story - I was playing my electric guitar (practicing), and accidentally sliced one of my fingers on the high E String ... there was this spurt of blood all over my guitar ... it looked really cool.

    In later years, there was an advert in Guitar Player Magazine where someone was playing guitar with these HUGE blood spurts over the guitar ... I thought, I bet someone else did the same thing as me, and now they thought it was so cool, they use it as an advert! ;-)

  • omg.. shrugs... >_<

    and I though you are talking about fingering... XD

    that must have hurt alot!! ...
    I found out that I have to change my guitar strings now since the 1st string broke and snapped onto my arm... too bad it's not bleeding coz it would be so cool if it did..
