Bach Gavotte BWV 995

Bach, "Gavotte BWV 995"

Transcription and Fingering: Renato Bellucci


San Bernardino, Paraguay, December 26, 2014

Pivots and Levers are technical resources referring to how certain fingers in the left hand behave in order to help the other fingers in the left hand better and more efficiently find their way around the fingerboard. Both terms are self explanatory and watching the video will make it perfectly clear. The efficient use of both pivots and levers will translate in more fluidity and less mistakes in the left hand. Renato Transcribes and teaches one of Bach's greatest Gavottes from Lute Suite BWV 995. Bach reaches a point of immense beauty halfway through the second part and I consider this passage to be one of the great moments in music history. Mastering the use of PresentationsLevers and pivots will make Gavotte BWV 995 a much more fluent work. I examine these Carlevarian concepts in depth in the Technique section of mangore.com. Abel Carlevaro's vision of the technique encompassed the playing apparatus as a whole and the fingers were seen as the final part of a much larger and more complete and efficient set. Carlevaro was the first Maestro who took the time to write a treaty on Classical Guitar technique and he has set the basis for every guitarist to continue upon his work. Having been a disciple of the Uruguayan master, I share these revolutionary concepts with all my students.

Presentations of the Left Hand

Carlevaro had to adapt some existing and non existing words in order to explain some of his technical concepts. Presentation, the way the left hand looks with respect to the fret board, he divided in 3 types: 1- Longitudinal. 2- Transversal. 3- Mixed.

Pivot is an often misunderstood concept. Many guitarists apply it one way or another but not as effectively or consciously as they could.
