Q&A Lesson: Descending Shifts During Scales

Q&A Lesson: Descending Shifts During Scales for Classical Guitar – A follower asked the question: “How can improve my E Chromatic Scale, especially the descending shifts which are tricky in the left hand?” In the lesson I demonstrate an E Chromatic Scale, left hand alignment, shifts, guide fingers, and more. Here’s the YouTube link if you want to watch it there.

The book I mention is my Classical Guitar Technique: Essential Exercises, Scales, and ArpeggiosThe 122 page book includes: Practice Routines, Tips, 100 Open String Exercises, 120 Giuliani Arpeggios, Scales, Slur Exercises, Shifts, Finger Independence, Barre, Tremolo, Common Harmonics, and much more.
