4 Ladino Sepharadic Songs for solo Guitar – Hard Copy

4 Ladino Sepharadic Songs for solo Guitar  - Hard Copy

The Vagabond
This is a solo guitar version for an old Bokharian tune.
The melody begins in the bass and then moves to the soprano, supported by chords and triplets with sound shades creating dynamics which express the loneliness and alienation implied by the name of the song. The piece is played a second time, fully, and this time the melody is played in tremolo.

Arvolicos De Almandra
The Almond Trees. This is a Ladino song, which is deeply rooted in the Ladino singing tradition. This time, a piece for solo guitar. It does not seem complicated, but performing the song is difficult because it should be played lightly. In addition it is filled with appoggiatura.

Mama Yo No Tengo Visto    Clike2see the video… 
A Ladino song (Spanish-Jewish) song from the 16th century. The melody in the transcript is true to the original, and is played here from the bass through the soprano strings and up to the harmonic bell-like sounds. The melody is accompanied by a constantly recurring bass.

Dedicated to my friend, the guitar artist and composer Dr. Gregory Newton.

  Cuando El Rey Nimrod
A Ladino song that celebrates the birth of Abraham. It incorporates many elements taken from the Nimrod Midrashim. This song is sung as a Shabbat Z’mira (table song) and at circumcisions. The exact date of its origin is unknown but it probably dates from the 16th or 17th century.

4 ISRAELI SONGS for Solo Guitar - PDF

I Am Guitar [Heb: Ani Gitara]
Composed by Naomi Shemer for the singer: Benny Amdursky.
Here is arrangement for solo guitar that combines Lahav’s ideas: Opening with two short mysteries chords- arpeggios that leads to one of the most beautiful melody every written… second part repeats the song with written improvised wrapped around the origin melody. The words are not les touching: "I am guitar, the wind is playing my strings accordingly to the seasons of the year….." and ended: "I am guitar, I remember every one that ever play my stings, and I thank them all

The Valley Song  [Heb: Shir Hae’mek]
The melody was composed by Daniel Sambursky in 1934!
It was composed as a movie’s sound track, and became a popular song along with  the lyrics by Nathan Alterman. The melody and the lyrics are reflecting the atmosphere of the valley where i am living [God’s seeds valley). This amazing intensive short melody based on 4 very short themes. Now arranged for solo guitar.

Wind Flowers  [Heb: Kalaniot]
Composed by Moshe Wilensky in 1945 and sung by Shoshana Damary. Winlensky born in Poland and immigrate to Israel in 1932. His style combine European style with Israeli folk style it’s roots are eastern. Wind Flower is one of the most popular and amazing song Wilensky composed – now arranged for solo guitar by Naftali Lahav. The minor-melody streams in the bass while one changing note accompanying – of beat – in the background… the chant – in tremolo – is turn to Major…

Lahav’s Guitar Scales – Hard Copy

Lahav's Guitar Scales - Hard Copy


Lahav’s Guitar Scales

The method suggests Exercises and Scales.
The Exercises will help to assimilate the principles of practicing and playing scales
It is most recommending to keep on practicing those exercises as you progress playing the scales.
The Minor scales edited only as Natural-Minor Scales, this way the ascending fingering will serve
the descending.

All the scales in this method have been edited, as archetype patterns therefore should be played from other notes along the guitar’s neck. You may find the Tab most useful for transpose and duplicate scales locations. Play each scale ascending and descending

As a main concept, don’t stretch or strain the left-hand’s fingers to reach a farther fret!
Instead, move the whole palm to a better location [A position I call: perfect balance] where
you will feel most comfortable pressing without involving lots of muscles and strains.

The Latin letters that indicate the left hand positions are applying to finger No. 1’s location.
It is most recommended to progress this method, step by step, mastering the scales by heart and go back from time to time as you are diversify left hand fingering and patterns of rhythms. [Read more…]
