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.

Help Support the Site

Support the site. You're reading one of the most popular independent classical guitar publications online. The website, newsletter, and lessons are available to everyone for free. But it’s difficult and expensive work. Corporations and social media have caused falling revenues across the web making it increasingly challenging for independent publishers. If you value the website, newsletter, free lessons, or sheet music, please consider offering your support to keep its future sustainable and secure. – Bradford Werner
