This etude develops free-stroke scale-work with bass notes and a focus on legato and position shifts. Do not add slurs to accomplish the legato. The shifts are somewhat difficult but remember that ‘the arm moves the hand’. Keep a good left hand position while the arm shifts the hand up or down the neck of the guitar.

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
