This melody was used by Joaquín Rodrigo in his Fantasía para un gentilhombre written for the Spanish guitarist, Andres Segovia.
I composed Gateway to a Dream a couple days ago. I wanted to write a piece for the early intermediate fingerstyle guitar player. The form of the piece is a rondo (ABACA). In a rondo, a section of the song returns throughout the work.
Mauro Giuliani was an Italian guitarist and composer who lived from 1781-1829. He composed a lot of pieces for the guitar ranging from beginner-level pieces all the way up to pieces composed for the concert hall.
In this lesson I will teach you to play his Andantino (Op. 50, No. 1) which I see as an early intermediate level piece.
Here is my arrangement of Ludovico Einaudi’s Nuvole Bianche. Beautiful piece of music originally composed for the piano. Einaudi is an Italian composer and pianist who has composed music that incorporates a lot of different styles fused into his personal style. Such as pop, rock, classical, folk and world music.
Summertime comes from George Gershwin’s opera, Porgy and Bess. Summertime was composed in 1934 and was written in the style of a spiritual.
I’ve always loved Gershwin’s music and I look forward to arranging more of it in the future!
New arrangement! Nuvole Bianche by Ludovico Einaudi. Einaudi is an Italian pianist and composer who has composed music for movies like The Intouchables and I’m Still Here.
Anton Diabelli was an Austrian music publisher who also composed music. He is most famous for having composed the waltz that Beethoven used for his Diabelli Variations. Diabelli composed many wonderful pieces for the guitar. This is a perfect piece for the late-beginner guitar student.
This theme comes from the second movement of Smetana’s beautiful orchestral work called My Vlast. The second movement is called Vltava or The Moldau. In this movement he is trying to evoke the sound of rivers.
Summertime comes from the opera, Porgy and Bess, with music composed by George Gershwin. This song has been covered by many artists including Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, and even Ricky Nelson.
I’ve always loved Gershwin’s music and finally got around to arranging one of his songs. The first of many arrangements hopefully.
I composed Moroccan Nights using the double harmonic scale. The scale goes by a variety of names but what makes it stand out is that it has two large intervals in the scale called augmented 2nds.
I also use some basic rasgueados (strumming) in certain sections of the song as well as a different type of tremolo, compared to what most classical guitarists are used to.
