Grade 4 Lesson: Ejercicio in E Minor Ferrer

This lesson comes from my book Classical Guitar Repertoire Lessons Grade 4 – Six pieces at the grade four level with dedicated lessons preparing you for each piece.

Ejercicio in E Minor from Coleccion 12a de Ejercicios by Jose Ferrer (1835-1916) – YouTube Video Lesson Link. This is another great piece for the grade 4 level that utilizes a full range of the guitar from the 10th position to the 1st. Because this is the same key signature as the last piece by Bosch I go over chords shapes instead of scales to cover some fretboard knowledge. I also talk about the phrasing and dynamic shaping of non-chord-tones and do a walkthrough of the piece.
