Lesson: Playing Legato and Musical Melodies

A lesson on playing legato melodies on classical guitar. Four main areas are discussed: Left hand legato technique, right hand legato technique, dynamic shaping, and phrasing. The piece I’m playing in the video is Kean O’Hara by O’Carolan from my Method Book Volume 2 but you can just learn from the video for free if you don’t wish to buy it.

  1. Hi Bradford,
    Thanks for the lesson. Can you please advise the piece of music you were using for the lesson, I’m sure I won’t be the only person asking this question. Then I will be able to relate your ideas of phrasing to the music and my playing. Many Thanks.
    Regards, Den.
