Lesson: Scarlatti, Light Touch, Consistency, Planning by Martin Bickerton

English guitarist Martin Bickerton plays Sonata in A by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). This comes via his YouTube Channel and his lesson series titled “Tuned Up”. He plays the sonata and then talks about the piece and also gives a lesson on exercises for: 1) Light Touch and Feel: The Buzz Note Exercise; 2) Consistency in Sound: L and R hand fingering; and 3) Planned Performance: what you want to say and when. Looking forward to more lessons, go subscribe to him on YouTube if you haven’t already.
