Basic Tremolo Exercise, and how to practice tremolo on classical guitar. From my pdf book 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar for beginner to intermediate classical guitarists. Includes: notation, TAB, fingerings, practice tips, video lessons. YouTube Video Lesson Link (HD)
In this lesson I cover a basic tremolo exercise across the strings. The importance of single-string and staccato tremolo practice. The importance of an overall well-rounded technique. Then I dive into various ways to work on your tremolo. Take it ultra slow and develop an even and balanced tremolo. It’s far too easy to go fast and pretend you’re improving.
You might also want to check this video even though I mention the idea above: How m, a scales can improve your tremolo and arpeggios. FYI, my full technique book with notation-only have many more exercises.
