Beginner Left Hand Exercises for Classical Guitar

Left Hand Exercises for Classical GuitarHere is a lesson and some exercises for the left hand position and development on the classical guitar. This is one of the most common and important lessons for beginners and intermediate players.

I’m using example exercises (No. 2 Vertical Builder & No. 3 Horizontal Builder ) from my PDF eBook 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar. It’s a great exercise for working on your fundamental left hand technique. Beginner students should just aim for control and go slowly. Advanced students may wish to bring the metronome into the equation. Main tips: keep the knuckles/palm parallel with the strings, curve your fingers at each joint, play on the fingertips, play right next to the fret.
