Description
 

The Total Classical Guitarist



The Total Classical Guitarist teaches the essentials of classical guitar from beginning levels to late intermediate. This exciting method features in-depth lessons on right- and left-hand technique, posture, ornaments and slurs, performance aesthetics, fingernail care, and much more. Intended for those with some experience playing guitar (not the absolute beginner), this book will appeal to traditional classical guitarists and teachers---as it features examples written in standard music notation only (no TAB). A CD demonstrating all of the examples in the book is included.

Features:
  • Practical, easy-to-understand lessons in technique and posture
  • In-depth discussion of fingernails, including shape and maintenance
  • Comprehensive instruction on performing slurs and ornaments
  • Special techniques such as pizzicato, Bartók pizzicato, natural harmonics, artificial harmonics, tamboura, and tremolo
  • Musical considerations like dynamics, colors, articulations, rubato, and vibrato
  • Practicing strategies, including notes for crossover players and making the most of your practice time.
