The Classical Guitar Essentials Advanced Pro is the final course in this series. If you've been following the series since Part 1 The Basics, you've come a long way in your journey in learning Classical Guitar. Way to Go!

In this course we will finish off with 3 Masterpieces in the Classical Guitar world:

1. “Lagrima” by Francisco Tarrega

Spanish guitarist Francisco Tarrega is often called 'The father of modern classical guitar' due to his great influence on expanding its technique and repertoire. This piece is one of his most famous studies, sometimes they call it "Teardrop", and you'll know why when you play it.

This piece is in two sections: one in E Major, the other in E minor. There is much fingerboard movement and a lot of attention should be given to the left hand fingering, something we will discuss in details in the course.

This one is a MUST for any classical guitar student.

2. “Romance” (Anonymous)

This popular Spanish melody is one of the most recognizable melody for classical guitar. Although no one knows who composed it (Anonymous), it remains a beautiful melody and it demonstrates your skills in a lot of ways.

Written also in two parts, the first in E minor, and the second in E Major, it contains overall 7 Bar Chords which some requires wide stretches. Lots of dynamics and the use of vibrato in some notes will make this piece one of your favorite to play for yourself and your family.

This is where all the training on the bar chords will really pay off.

3. “Allegro” Op.40 No.6 by Mauro Giuliani

Less famous piece compared to the others, but still it contains double notes in 3rds and harmonized melody that will test your abilities on the fingerboard.

The technique of playing 3rds using guide finger on the first two strings, is a very new technique which we haven't discussed yet. So this one will be a new ground for you, and it will break the pattern of playing arpeggios and scales.

This final course is targeting the advanced/intermediate students who has been following me since the beginning. However, if this is your first course with me, make sure that you can read standard sheet music, as there are not TABS in the course!

We start the course with a group of scales and arpeggios, mostly 3 octaves to cover the whole fingerboard. These scales and arpeggios are from The London College of Music Grade 5 exam book. Also the three pieces we are covering here are from the same level. If you wish to take the exam, this course will help you massively to score Distinction, which is the highest score in LCM. But if you don't want to, the scales and arpeggios here will help you understand the pieces - and music in general - so you know what are you playing, and why the pieces sound like what they sound.

Also I included 2 other small pieces to help you practice and memorize the new scales that we are covering here. Playing the scales over and over will only help you develop your fingers. However, implementing the scales in your playing, this is where the small pieces will come in handy.

The pieces are “La Donna E Mobile” From Rigoletto, and “Humoreske” By Dvorak.

The course is rather short compared to my other courses, and the reason is that the pieces are really long (2 of them) and quit hard. Still you will learn a lot from them, and your technique will be enhancing dramatically.
