Grade 1 Lesson: Lección 75 by Sagreras

This lesson comes from my new book Classical Guitar Repertoire Lessons Grade 1 – Eight pieces at the grade one level with dedicated lessons preparing you for each piece. Check it out at Werner Guitar Editions!

Lección 75 by Julio Sagreras (1879–1942), from Primeras lecciones de guitarra. Sagreras was an Argentine guitarist and composer and this study is great for working on combined melody and chord shapes. There is nothing very awkward or new about this piece except for more block chords, quicker moving arpeggios, and more involved right hand fingering. Practice the melody on its own and some of the chord shapes to prepare the piece.
