Description

Level: 4
Number of Pages: 12
Instrumentation: Guitar only
Composer: VACHEZ, Sebastien



Here one is asked to retune four of the strings, 3rd to F#, 4th to D#, 5th to B and 6th to low B. Ok but that takes quite some adjusting. It begins with multiple layers of F#s arid Bs to create an authentically Eastern feel to it (some parts are in two staves here also) Then the main Molto Ritmico section leads on with a pizzicato motif, interwoven with various ideas often built around hammer-ons and pull-offs, before the pedal idea hinted at the beginning leads to an extended section where the F#s and Bs underpin a swiftly moving semiquaver melody. Time signatures change swiftly from here on in before settling down back to the Molto Ritmico's first idea. This in turn leads after a swift climax to a repeat of much of the foregoing before a coda whips up the excitement level before a close on a fortissimo B major chord. The hardest thing about this piece is the retuning needed. Having said that, much of it is used in a drone capacity, to enhance the Oriental feel needed. As it stands it is quite an effective four-minute piece that one could place in a concert, providing you didn't pale at all the retuning needed in mid concert.
