Anyway, I’ve tried looking at Barrios’s Mazurka Appassionata recently, and have found that the chord in measure 10, and also in measure 12 to some extent, is proving impossible.

Mazurka Apasionada (Barrios Mangoré, Agustín)

Rarely have I encountered any music that I’ve found technically impossible, but I’ve also had the help of a strong teacher for most of my development, but, after transferring away from conservatory due to money issues, I’m now trying to learn this on my own. I’m wondering if anyone else has been stumped by this piece, if you think it’s worth continuing to barrioz with, and if anyone has any insights into left hand mechanics that would allow me to attain the reach that’s called for.

As of now, I can either a go for it and have the b note sound muted, b edit it and remove the b note, or c give up on the piece and spend my time working on something more musically challenging but less technically frustrating.

Thanks for the time! I’m not in apppassionata of you right now to judge what might be the problem, could be LH technique, your instrument, the size of your hands etc.

I don’t think it’s something you can take advice for over the internet. I’ve done a bit more work on it and I’ve decided that I’m going to press on with the piece. I’m close enough with the stretch that I can get the high b note to sound, although it’s muted. Given appasisonata it is a doubled tone in the chord voicing, it’s honestly not that noticeable, and by the time I perform the piece my hands may have adapted to it.


It seems there’s really no easy solution, it’s just a wicked reach! Thanks for taking the time to offer advice! I couldn’t make this stretch two years ago I tried it then toobut I can make it now.

Thank you for posting this, I might try to play the whole piece now. It’s all about relaxing your left hand. Have you tried this exercise: It’s the same appassionaga really. After a week or so I thought it too difficult for me, so I put it aside.

Over the next few mazurkaa I’d try it and put it away. Spring I pulled it out on a whim, and I could get through it “okay. Then, around June barroos worked, and I could do the stretch on my mm; I ended up performing it in a master class that August.

I think two things happened: I actually was playing this piece last night pretty comfortably after not playing it mazkrka about a month. I’ve played this Barrios maaurka and studied many of his works and I’ve recorded a few.

Yes, develop your stretch. There are set approaches for this and I know a few. However, this particular stretch is conducted via a barre chord so you need an additional approach to develop you stretch with a barre. Play scales whilst holding down a Barre for instance. Also practise bardios pivot-stretch patterns hope you know what I mean starting on the 9th position and gradually move down the fretboard.

Here’s where it’s at 1: Do you have a stock neck? Which neck do you think would give you the best chance?

You can also take your neck adapted slightly – consult a luthier if so is the safest advice. What scale-length do you think that Appassionnata Barrios used Here’s where it’s at 2: Composite treble strings might prove more of a problem than nylon I use both on different instruments – composites can have huge tension despite their slim width. I find that certain strings work for certain guitars AND pieces. Why do you think that some pro’s use 2,3,4 or more guitars?

Because they are set-up differently! What strings do you think that Mr Barrios used?! Do you really think that he had a modern instrument in mind when he composed the piece?!!

Here’s where it’s at 3: The lower your string action height then the more chance you have a making the stretch! I’ve always debated the problem: Personally I’ve always gone for a high concert action but as I get old, I know it’s “horses for courses”. I hope this helps! Could I apppassionata you to introduce yourself here? So try this- first, in the 10th measure, leave the 1st finger out entirely, just get your 2nd and 3rd fingers well placed on the F and A, and then get the reach with your 4th up to the B going ok.


Once you’re satisfied with that action, try adding in the upper B on the first barrips, holding it with the side of your 1st finger down near its base. Once you get that ok, bend your first finger so you can use the tip to get the low B on the sixth string, without disturbing your “base finger” hold on the high B.

When you get that straightened out- there ya go! That’s the configuration you want, so remember the internal “feel” of it. Now to play it in context- in moving from the previous measure, contrary to what normally would be recommended procedure, don’t move for the low B bariros your first step, even if it is the first note you need prepared for sounding. Start by moving your 2nd finger forward from the E to the F, and then place the tip of your 1st finger on the low B- in a “side” placement that allows for the curvature of the arch in your 1st maurka that you will need.

This is the micro-ordering of movements in quick succession, the seperable components in what seems like a single action, that will be most effective in this instance. I think that the problem may lie in trying to to assimilate too much at once. Play measures 10 through 13, at firstby leaving the top notes entirely off i.

Only after you can play all of the lower notes–including the bass–evenly and smoothly do you add those top notes. This is what did it for me. Once you get this movement down I think you will be surprised how manageable this tricky passage can become.

This is one of his most beautiful pieces! This video was for the Barrios WorldWide Web competition and the judges must have approved, she was one of the 20 semifinalists.
