This is a video lesson for my new ebook: 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar – For beginner to intermediate classical guitarists (Includes: notation, TAB, fingerings, practice tips). Check out more free video lessons at the lesson archive. I’ll be releasing videos for all 20 exercises.
This exercise, No. 4 – Basic Arpeggios + Full & Sequential Planting, aims to even out the balance in your arpeggios. Each finger is given a chance to be the prominent voice. This exercise is a basic version of a pattern shown to me by guitarist Michael Dias. I also give brief explanation of full and sequential planting for classical guitar. It has been explained many times before but I certainly hope the video clarifies the issue as writing about right hand planting can be confusing.
