Chopin - Prelude No.22 in G minor
Chopin - Prelude No.22 in G minor by entschwindet und vergeht
Another of Chopin's Preludes given the once over by my clumsy fingers. This one is nasty, brutish and short, with a usually thundering bass melody (in octaves on the piano) being played stacatto entirely by the thumb, with the other fingers left to render the syncopated, angular chords draped over the top. I must say it's quite fun to bash the guitar around a bit in a way that isn't normally done, but I suppose that to play this piece properly requires a bit more precision than I've got, what with my miniscule practise regime these days.
