Lesson: Left Hand Technique Advice with Matthew McAllister

Siccas Guitars The excellent Scottish guitarist Matthew McAllister gives a lesson in left hand technique for classical guitar. Matthew has fantastic technique but most importantly a very musical technique. He’s also a great teacher so enjoy this lesson. This comes via the excellent Siccas Guitars and their fantastic YouTube channel. This is a great lesson with equally good camera/video work. Very useful. If you’re looking for a technique book you can check out my review of classical guitar technique and exercise books or look inside and buy Scott Tennant’s Pumping Nylon on Amazon.

  1. Matthew,
    Truly appreciate your lessons. You make it easier to grasp the concepts behind exercising without which exercising is not very productive. Thanks.
