Lesson: Left Hand Preparation (Planting)

Lesson of the Week for Classical Guitar
Left Hand Preparation (Planting) via my YouTube Channel.

The main benefits to your left hand technique are: accuracy, speed, efficiency: economy of motion (using small smooth motions). It’s a great way to practice your pieces. It’s also a way to work on your left hand technique rather than just play something over and over. If you’re looking for technique books I would recommend: The Bible of Classical Guitar Technique by Hubert Käppel which is an amazing 245 pages of exercises and text. There are also some great left hand exercises in Scott Tennant’s Pumping Nylon. You can see more lesson videos at the lesson archive page.

Help Support the Site

Support the site. You're reading one of the most popular independent classical guitar publications online. The website, newsletter, and lessons are available to everyone for free. But it’s difficult and expensive work. Corporations and social media have caused falling revenues across the web making it increasingly challenging for independent publishers. If you value the website, newsletter, free lessons, or sheet music, please consider offering your support to keep its future sustainable and secure. – Bradford Werner
