Giuliani’s 120 Arpeggio Exercises for the Right Hand from Op.1 – These patterns represent a significant study of classical era guitar playing and offer an opportunity to develop dexterity in the right hand. Practice as solid chords and broken as well as with full and sequential plants. For extra practice, try playing a light rest stroke thumb with free stroke fingers which can help to develop a secure right hand. See the practice routines in the preface for an order based on your level.

  1. Hi Bradford, Have you by any chance explained anywhere tips for improving the placement of the 2nd finger LH on the G7 chord to stop it from touching the D string? I have twisted myself into contortions to stop that buzzing! AND I have really small hands so it is really difficult. Thanks, Laura
