Alternating Right Hand Fingers for Classical Guitar


Alternating Fingers Classical GuitarHere is a lesson on right hand alternation for the classical guitar. This is one of the most important concepts of right hand fingering for classical guitar and essential for beginners to accomplish. Intermediate students should also review this because repeating fingers by accident is such a common intermediate mistake. I’m using an example exercise (No. 1 – Right Hand Walking) from my PDF eBook 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar. It’s a great exercise for working on your fundamental right hand technique. Beginner students should just aim for control and go slowly. Advanced students may wish to bring the metronome up to 120 beats tot he quarter note. If you don’t know your finger names on your right hand here they are: i = index; m = middle; a = angular (ring finger); p = thumb
