    You can still buy "The Study Of Counterpoint" by JJ Fux on Amazon.

    Dude, I have wholeheartedly beleived that for Half of my life! I began studying theory when I was 21. (42 now) Unfortunately, then there were no websites to learn from. This place is great because you can really learn from a person, what it took decades, in the right thread.

    Peace,

    looks like this guy performs the piece on guitar. although i can't seem to buffer the mp3 and no 'save target as..' can be selected. he manages to stretch it to 10 minutes .
    cool, i still don't think its as full a sound as intended, but still cool. the link was only a 2 min clip, how did you get the 10 min version? Also I believe theres a second guitar in there helping him fill out the larger chords that are in the piece.

    Do you know where I can hear a fingerstyle acoustic version of the song?
    They call them fingers, but I never see them fing.

    was that guy not fingerstyle?


    i wouldn't know the mp3 link does not work for me. but if he does not make it sound 'full' (altho how are you supposed to play 1 melody line and make it sound like 2 i don't know) then i probably won't make it sound 'full' if that guy can't.......unless i grow more arms. still think it holds value in both performace and analysis for guitar players, alex masi seemed to think so and made it a lead track on his album. the performance lasts 10 minutes but the mp3 only shows 2 minutes (according to you, it does not work for me )

    cheers Los Boleros,

    i think from now on i will start anylising pieces AS i learn them to improve memory. in fact will do it tonight. i have NEVER really done this before (usually after i have learned to play it)

    this is how i analyse.

    i write down the notes + relate it to the key and find what mode is being used. and when it comes to arps i write down the notes and find out where they are derived from.

    is this okay?

    oh yeah, about the j.j. fux book. i was gonna say that i will buy a 'used' one from amazon soon.

    i have decided it would be a good idea for me to learn it all then start a whole new thread dedicated to this composistion, so we can analyse the whole piece and see what we can learn from the master.

    Thoughts?
