  1. Good day Mr Werner. Hope you are doing well. I have a question about dynamics on the classical guitar. How do you correctly play softer and louder with your right hand? I sometimes tend to play to “hard” into the strings when I want to play forte. Its difficult for me to explain, I just want to know what is the best way to play piano and forte with the right hand, is there maybe a technique you can share to enhance that ability? Keep safe. Your training material is world class. Kind regards from South Africa.

  2. Good afternoon Mr. Werner,
    I am practicing on Etude No. 3.- Sound Picture (Classical Guitar method Volume 1). I found out the your dynamic notes is P,P,F,BLANK,F ( from line 1-5) But after I watched your video, I feel like it should be P,F,P,P,F. Am I catch it right?
    By the way, I really like your class. I will continue learning it! Appreciated you and your assistant give us the wonderful beginner class.
    Merry Christmas and happy holiday!

    • As written on the piece. Start soft and crescendo, then piano, then forte, stay on forte for the line with nothing on it, then decrescendo. But it’s all open to interpretation, follow the general markings but also your own musical instincts.
