PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: CLASSICAL -

[Bar 39] At bars 39 and 40 use the first fin­ger as a ‘hinge’ barre – where the tip of the fin­ger re­mains on the bass note Bb through­out but the rest of the first fin­ger lifts off and on the string for the Bbm chord. Re­mem­ber to ap­ply a 3rd fret barre on the first beat of bar 41. As well as us­ing ex­otic har­mony and scales, Satie also used colour­ful lan­guage to ex­press mu­si­cal in­struc­tions in this piece. I have added them to the score with trans­la­tions in brack­ets.
