Basic Classical Guitar Positions & Technique
An overview of the photos & diagrams from the site
YouTube Video Link
Here is a basic overview of my classical guitar technique visual references all in one video. Hopefully this helps students gain a basic knowledge on how to sit and position their hands on classical guitar. I recommend watching this and then continuing on to the specific pages regarding posture, right hand, and left hand technique. Grab your guitar and a mirror and compare yourself to the diagrams. Main posts with HD photos and text are here: Posture and Sitting Position, Right Hand Position, and Left Hand Position. Find more articles at the Full Lesson Archive Page. I have a dedicated beginner lesson page as well.
