How to play Concerto De Aranjuez Part 2

Today I’m going to do a follow up video of Concerto De Aranjuez, the previous video was on the rasguedo opening passages. This is the following 8 bars. Let’s discover it together.
The end of the introduction, which includes some thumb work and scale work.
I’m going to use my thumb to play the melody, preparing the thumb at the end of the last chord. Use Staccato, putting the thumb straight back on the string. There is also a crescendo coming out of the chords to make sure that the melody stays loud. For the final run start it on the 4th string 5th fret to minimise string changes.
It’s a tricky scale that you can practice going up and down and also break it up into sections.

Overall, practice with a metronome and take care with the articulations.
