Lesson: Speed and Movement with Matthew McAllister

Matthew McAllister demonstrates an exercise which helps develop speed and movement on classical guitar. This comes via his amazing YouTube channel where he’s posted a number of other great lessons. Nice combination exercise here that places an extra check on speed to make sure your individual fingers are keeping their movements concise, controlled, and relaxed. Good lesson with an important reminder to practice in various ways with various articulations. Also, remember to listen carefully as you play, not just do the movements.
