Lesson: Combining Phrasing with Relaxation and Technique Practice on Classical Guitar. In this lesson I discuss the idea of presenting good phrasing and combining the ends of phrases with relaxation in the body as well as “pushing the reset button” on your technique and posture as well as the mind in performance. Here’s the YouTube Lesson Link if you prefer to watch it there.

This was a terrific and valuable lesson – thank you. I’m still fairly new to classical guitar, and I notice how much my tone changes as stress creeps into my body while playing. My right shoulder shifts up and my right hand angle subtly changes, completely changing the tone. Training to “reset” at the end of a phrase is a great recommendation.
This is a great lesson! Thank you so much!
I definitely need to also apply this technique to my cello practice as well. Tension is such a hindrance in any instrument!
Great lesson, thank you.
Very helpful. Thank you so much for these!
This lesson will help me to deal with some of my issues on posture. Thanks, Bradford.
