Ten Classical Etudes for Guitar (PDF)

Title Page for Ten Classical Etudes for GuitarTen Classical Etudes
By Sor, Carcassi, & Giuliani
For intermediate classical guitar
Fingerings, Tips, Video Lessons, Fingering
Comes with two editions: Notation & Notation + TAB
Edited and Fingered by Bradford Werner

I have tested all these etudes with my students and found them to be very beneficial for learning musical and technical concepts. The etudes have been arranged in a progressive order from easy to difficult. The first and last etude emphasize the importance of using etudes to develop a musical technique. The notation only edition is great but the TAB edition should help make this book accessible and easy to understand for students less comfortable with notation.
