The 20 Brouwer Simple Studies (Etudes Simples, Fr.; Estudios Sencillos, Sp.), are good examples of guitar studies. From the first to the last. since many yeares I’m coming again and again back to Estudios Sencillos by Leo Brouwer. Recently I heard a recording by Ricardo Cobo – he. I’d recommend progressing to this after completing Brouwer’s Simple Studies. It consists of 10 homages to famous composers and are played in their typical.

And this is just one point.

Again, this “maximises” practice time and effort, by applying most effort to passages of the music which are difficult, rather than always playing from beginning-to-end. Those things may take several months to develop.

Description “The Leo Brouwer Etudes have become a standard part of the classical guitarist’s repertoire. Your question will appear on the site once someone answers it.

The Estudios Sencillos by Leo Brouwer: How simple are they? – Classical Guitar

Merely playing through such pieces will certainly improve technique, but extracting passages for further study, or devising small exercises based upon short passages, tailored to ones own technical needs and interests, will prove more fruitful.

How simple are they? The notion of “Easy” or “Simple” studies is one that goes back to the classical period, when composers fo the guitar and other instruments would publish pieces with this kind of descriptor in the title.

It took me a couple months of practice, setudios myself, playing accompaniment alone and than trying to put leeo together with the bass, to reach my teacher’s recquirement.

See what people are saying about Loading This may sound counter-intuitive, but bear with me Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only Although these ideas and this approach deal specifically with this single Brouwer study, I think this approach can work well for most simplles although the specific way to “reduce” a piece will be different for different studies.

Very often, the pieces in these collections would be very easy for a virtuoso or a professional player. If one breaks the piece down into a series of chord shapes fingered by the left hand, and initially just practises the changes between these, it can make the process of learning the whole piece far quickerallowing one to then focus upon the true purpose of the study, right hand technique.

But my asked me to make the accompaniment interesting while still keeping a singing bass.

Is there any particular order of practices I should follow, or maybe analyze, or something like that? I hope estusios enjoy your time here. In particular, it is useful to “maximise” practice time, by paying particular attention to those chord changes which one finds simpels difficult, and repeating these correctly in order to learn them fluently. You can’t take the meaning of this in an absolute way – it depends on your perspective.

Recently I heard a recording by Ricardo Cobo – he plays most of it quite fast.
