  1. That David Russell clip was really on the money. One of the most insightful and practical lessons on what constitutes technical practice.
    Each player can pick up something from this approach relative to the level they’re at. I think this is the antidote to the manic quest for speed and volume that pervades the classical guitar world at this time. And, what a nice man !
