Right Hand Musical Balance on Classical Guitar

Right Hand Musical Balance: how to bring out musical lines or even out the sound of the right hand on classical guitar. In this lesson I’ll show you two ways to practice bringing out a particular finger or musical voice in a texture as well work on evening out the sound of each finger in the right hand. This is useful for bringing out the melody of a piece while softening the accompaniment or equalizing the right hand for more musical balance.
