About this book, This book teaches classical and fingerstyle guitar skills with a focus on the rich pedagogical tradition of.
classical guitar Most learning objectives are covered through pieces and duets rather than exercises or. descriptions This allows students to perform full pieces from the first lesson Working with a qualified. teacher as well as watching the lesson videos should provide students with a healthy start to guitar. How to use this book, Study Part 1 in progressive order studying every piece on every page Incorporate Part III as a. technique routine from the beginning The chord section can be studied more loosely based on the. skills and age of the student Take lessons with a qualified teacher and watch the free video lessons to. help you learn proper technique musicality and listening skills. Five Main Goals, 1 Play solos and duets from start to finish with a steady tempo. 2 Play legato melodies also with open string bass accompaniment. 3 Play arpeggio pieces and patterns, 4 Become proficient at reading music in first position without key signatures. 5 Accompany basic songs with strumming or fingerstyle chords. What is left out, This book omits information that might clutter the beginner learning experience Music should be. learned through listening and experience Only a small amount of theory and musical expression have. been included I encourage students to explore these topics with their teacher during weekly lessons. Advice on theory and expression have been included in the free lesson videos which is a better. medium for communicating musical ideas,What to study after this book.
Method Book Volume 2 Continue your progress with new repertoire techniques key. signatures scales time signatures theory musicality rhythm training new chords and more.

Werner Guitar Editions or at This is Classical Guitar. https www thisisclassicalguitar com free classical guitar method book pdf. Rest stroke or free stroke Nails, Teachers have different opinions about the use of rest and free strokes for beginners I have seen good. results from both approaches My beginner students use free stroke until proper hand positions and a. relaxed legato playing style are established Students need not introduce right hand nails until hand. positions and posture are secure Consider introducing nails during Volume 2. Use of the left hand pinky finger, Students should use the left hand pinky for D and G 3rd fret of the 1st and 2nd strings This fingering. is required for solo pieces later and also helps align the left hand Students will have no trouble using. the pinky if it is curved and in the proper position. Memory and technique exercises, Beginner students especially youth do not need to be overly concerned with technique exercises. Motivation and inspiration will come from experiencing music through playing repertoire Students. should memorize their pieces and look at their hands while they play However a brief five to ten. minute technique routine can be beneficial to establishing technical concepts. Recommended books to use with this method, Sight Reading For the Classical Guitar Level I III by Robert Benedict Sight reading with.
emphasis on interpretation phrasing form and more http amzn to 2o8bE0P. Berklee Music Theory Book 1 Intro to theory with an answer key https amzn to 2K1TeHw. Tuning the guitar, Students should buy a clip on tuner I like the D Addario Micro Tuner http amzn to 2pecdpN. Tuning by ear to the teacher should begin during the first lesson as well as relative tuning. 1 Play the 6th string at the 5th fret and tune the open 5th string to the same pitch. 2 Play the 5th string at the 5th fret to tune the open 4th string. 3 Play the 4th string at the 5th fret to tune the open 3rd string. 4 Play the 3rd string at the 4th fret to tune the open 2nd string. 5 Play the 2nd string at the 5th fret to tune the open 1st string.

Practice Advice, Happiness in small goals Making your practice sessions enjoyable will be key to long term musical. success and development When experiencing difficulties break up the piece or exercise into small. manageable goals at a speed you can accomplish successfully Even if you only play a few notes at a. time playing successfully will improve your skills and give you a feeling of accomplishment. Isolate difficulties and solidify strengths Balance your practice sessions by working on difficulties as. well as maintaining easy material you can play well Playing at a high quality level as often as possible. will help develop a solid foundation Work on your difficulties near the middle of your practice session. and finish with something you can play well This will ensure you end with a positive feeling of success. Practicing is Problem Solving Practicing is different than just playing the guitar When you practice. you need to identify problems or elements you wish to improve and solve them immediately Simply. playing the guitar will not make you a better musician If your teacher says you should practice for 30. minutes a day be sure you are actually practicing for 30 minutes not just playing. Combine repetition with thoughtful practice Although a certain amount of repetition is required to. establish your skills balance repetition with thoughtful reevaluation Sometimes improvement will. occur by reexamining your posture hand positions or elements not directly connected to what you are. studying Having a qualified teacher is very helpful They can identify problems before you repeat it a. hundred times That said aim to be mindful at all times about what you are doing. Good days vs bad days Actually I don t believe in good or bad practice days All days are good. opportunities to practice something On days when you are having trouble focusing or executing. material cleanly slow down your speed and use a metronome until you are playing well You may have. to play at half the speed you intended but you can still get in some quality practice. Play slowly I ve rarely encountered a student who practices as slowly as I think they should Practicing. ultra slowly will ensure you are playing with your best hand positions sound confidence relaxation. accuracy and more The majority of your practicing should be at very slow tempos Once you can play. something well at a slow tempo you can speed it up while keeping an eye on the quality level. Page markers Use page markers sticky tabs on the pages you are practicing so you can quickly flip. to the next piece or exercise, Keep it simple Even the most advanced players will practice simple open string exercises but will do. so at a very high quality level Quality practice helps to improve your playing so keep the exercises and. pieces simple enough that you can accomplish them at your highest potential You don t have to prove. yourself to anyone You ll only improve if you set realistic and manageable goals. Trust your teacher If your teacher recommends something contrary to what s in this book please trust. their advice Your teacher knows what s best for you and your personal and unique development. Learning from books and online videos can be helpful but the real work is done through long term. communication with teachers and other musicians,Getting Started Finger Names.
