An interesting video lesson by Jorge Caballero about how to play fast and increase your speed on classical guitar. I like his note about the different types of speed. Also, it’s so important for students to know that speed does not make a performance, it’s musical playing that connects with your audience. Jorge is a GFA winner and spectacular performer. I had the privilege of seeing him perform a while back and was very impressed. If you’re looking for a technique book you can check out my review of classical guitar technique and exercise books.
