Lesson: Shifts and String Noise on Guitar

This is from my Lesson of the Week segment of the site. A lesson on shifts and string noise for classical guitar using Ricardo Iznaola’s Kitharologus: The Path to Virtuosity (Amazon). This is exercise No. 37 in level 3. I’d put this exercise in the intermediate level but beginners and advanced players could also benefit. I love how sequential and progressive the book is, it’s one of the best books I’ve seen for guitar. It starts super easy with open strings but it gets very difficult so it’s not for the faint of heart.
