En las sombras : guitar solo
by Sally Greenaway (2012)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
En Las Sombras - in the shadows - is full of passion and driving rhythms, with interesting meter changes. Technical features include palm muting, rasgueado, tambor, and LH only passages. I wanted this piece to really show off John's virtuosic playing on the guitar.
En Las Sombras succeeds/complements De La Luz and Sin Luz, as part of a set of 3 contrasting works for solo guitar.
Duration: 5 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — Changes in time signatures, explores advanced playing techniques on the guitar
Dedication note: Dedicated to John Couch
Commission note: Commissioned by John Couch.
Although there are Spanish influences in this music, I was particularly interested in bringing a little bit of a rock flair to the piece, resulting in an interesting mashup.
