Improving Right-Hand Speed for Scales by Tariq Harb

A nice little lesson on right hand speed and preparation. I like how Tariq goes through how he practices rather than just the tips. I love these kind of casual videos on youtube, watch enough of them from the pros and you’ll get an overall idea of how to approach right hand technique on classical guitar. You can also check out a more basic lesson on right hand technique here. If you’re looking for a technique book you can check out my review of classical guitar technique and exercise books. You can find more free lessons at the lesson archive page.

This video is a response to some who have asked me questions about improving right-hand speed for playing scales on the classical guitar, whether its using free-stroke, or rest-stroke technique.

Always using a metronome, I tried to explain the practice method that I followed for some years now to improve my right-hand speed and accuracy. I hope this helps you.

Please don’t hesitate to write to me if you have any questions. Thanks for watching!
