Hey everyone,

 

here’s my arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s classical theme of the “Nutcracker March”! 🙂 It should suit beginning classical guitar players very well and it is a fun piece to play! I hope you’ll enjoy it! Tell me in the comment below if you liked it.

 

Once I transcribed this arrangement I am going to release the sheet music for free here on my website!

Stay tuned,

Tschaikovsky’s March Slave Theme | Intermediate Fingerstyle Arrangement by Lukas Wedrychowski| Free Tabs / Notation Download

Hey everyone,

 

here’s my arrangement of Tschaikovsky’s “March Slave”. It is meant to be an arrangement for the intermediate player or maybe “late-beginner”, as it includes harmonics and some more advanced techniques such as slides (from a beginner’s perspective).

I hope you enjoy this version of it. Please, consider subscribing to my YouTube channel as well as sharing my videos on your socials and giving my videos a thumb up if you liked it! This helps me out a lot as I am still growing!

Thank you so much!

 

I wish you an amazing day,

Lukas

#ProgressLog | Guitar (Y1/W1)

Hey everyone,

so here’s my weekly progress entry. For the better part of the week I’ve been stuck with Für Elise which is a real blast! It is probably the most difficult piece I’ve studied so far. That’s the reason why I haven’t managed to fully learn it but I will keep it in my plannings for the next “Classical week”, when I will most likely finish it completely and record what I’ve got! However, I’ll make sure to upload regular updates on how I progress on that piece.

My practice schedule so far was pretty straight forwards. I figured out the chords and basic patterns that I needed for this piece and isolated them in my practice. So far the changes go relatively smoothly, however, there are still some that require futher practice (in particular those who require a three-string-barring with a single finger).

Year 1 (2017) – Week 1

Guitar | SUMMARY

  • Repertoire
    • Classical:
      • “Für Elise” by Ludwig van Beethoven (Part A + B finished, although B not recorded yet)
  • Theory
    • Scales:
      • Major Scale (D, A, F, B) ==== Theoretically I know these scales now by heart.
      • Minor Pentatonic Scale (2nd box) ==== Didn’t manage to get this one done.
    • Chords:
      • Am, E, F ==== Done!
    • Key signatures
      • Repeating C, D, E, F, G, A, B ==== I managed to learn C, D, E and F but not the rest.
    • Intervals
      • Root to perfect 8th ==== Done!
  • Technique
    • Spider exercise ==== Done!
    • Scale practise
      • Major Scale(D, A, F, B) ==== I only managed to practice D, A and F
    • Chord Practice
      • Am, E, F ==== Done! Although some inversions require some stretches.
    • Rhythm Practice
      • Standard 4/4 fingerstyle pattern (4) ==== Done!
    • New Technique
      • Basic percussive elements ==== Done but not yet repeated. Probably the upcoming week!

Alright that was quite something! As I once said I will most likely be able to do vLog summaries of my weekly practice sessions at the start of mid-february since I’ve got a huuuuuge exam coming up and I can’t find the time to set up everything properly for that yet. So until mid february you will get these pure text-based lessons with some clips of the pieces that I recorded so far.

Here’s part A of Beethoven’s “Für Elise”! Sorry for that one mistake! I promise once I finished the piece I will record it without any mistakes at all ! :^)

#ProgressGuitar | Update on “Für Elise” (Y1/W1)

 

Hello everyone,

this is my mid-week update for Y1/W1. I’m still head over heel with “Für Eliseby Ludwig van Beethoven. It’s a pretty piece but at the same, also quite tricky due to its key changes. This video shows my progress after three days. I’ve just completed the first section of the piece and will start with the second one today.

In total there are three parts to cover before I can finish the piece so it is still a long way to go before I can add this to my repertoire. However, I will give my best to finish it in time and provide a #vLog update at the end of this week.

Stay tuned!

Lukas
