Lesson: Etude No.1 by Villa-Lobos


Villa-Lobos Etude No. 1 Lesson for Classical GuitarA full video lesson tutorial for Etude No. 1 by Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) for classical guitar. I go through 4 main ideas, the right hand fingering, left hand fingering, how to navigate from chord to chord, and differences between editions. Along with Sor, Giuliani, Carcassi, and Brouwer, the Villa-Lobos etudes are the part of the core etude repertoire.

Sheet Music: I recommend this edition: Villa-Lobos Etudes (Zigante). Or you can get the old version (some differences and errors) but has the complete solo works including the preludes, suite, and etudes: Villa-Lobos complete works for solo guitar.
