This is a new beginner video lesson for my ebook: 20 Favorite Exercises for Classical Guitar – For beginner to intermediate classical guitarists (Includes: notation, TAB, fingerings, practice tips). I’ve been meaning to re-record some of these with better video.
FYI, my full technique book with notation-only have many more exercises.
This exercise, No. 5 – Basic Tremolo on Open Strings, aims to expose the beginner player to what is required of tremolo technique. I walk through the exercise and then give a few tips. I also give a brief explanation sequential planting and possible corrections. The two books I mention in the video can be purchased from Amazon: Kitharologus: The Path to Virtuosity by Ricardo Iznaola and Pumping Nylon by Scott Tennant. The Iznaola is a very comprehensive book but difficult, the Tennant is great for intermediate player workout sessions. I recommend Tennants first to get things going and Iznaola for a more long-term study.
