Lesson: Allegro from Free Method (beginner)

Classical Guitar Lesson, Beginner, Easy, Allegro (Scale Etude)Allegro (Scale Etude) for Classical Guitar
From: Classical Guitar Method Vol I • BeginnerNotation, 80 pg: Free PDF
Level: Easy, Absolute Beginner

This lesson is for my graded repertoire lesson series which you can find halfway down the lesson archive page. When I teach guitar I have the student set up a model for technique and then they try to maintain that model when playing pieces. Therefore, straightforward pieces without too many weird shapes and stretches are very important for beginner to around grade 3 level students. This excludes many pieces but as a core set of works it is important. This is the first full page piece from my free method book for classical guitar.Get the free pdf and follow the video lessons. Allegro is an easy piece for absolute beginner players so just make sure to be careful of your posture and hand positions (I’ve included a video for that as well). This one really focuses on getting students to alternate i and m and ‘trick’ them into practicing scales.

  1. I am new at the classical guitar, I am also 69 years old. In 1966, I joined the United States Marine Corps. I was very active with music from age 10 from 1956 to 1968 as a percussionist, I took classes at the Juilliard School of Music. In the Matine Corps, I was a percussionist, and performed for two Presidents, and traveled across America. Now being 69, I needed……missed, the amazing satisfaction of music, hence, the Classical Guitar. I find you to be an amazing person, and one that is willing to help people learn, enjoy and grow as a musician, even thou, not as a professional, at least at in my case. I salute you, respect and want to support you. I did download your free book. My question is, how, where I can buy future music books, and have you benefit financially?

    I have been practicing your free book about one hour per day, I am a disabiled veteran, have a love for music, and I am so glad that I found you. I do NOT have a teacher as yet, I do understand music, and realize that a guitar teacher would/could escalate my abilities. Again, I thank you, and admire you, and also know that that you a gift to all of us. Lastly, thank you for your gift, your love of Classical Guitar, and your passion for this wonderful instrument.
