If you've ever wondered how to play music that has multiple parts going on at the same time, or how to play chords where all the strings are not right next to each other, then this course is for you. If you would like to be able to play wide left- hand stretches but you don't have a huge hand, and you would like to know how to practice so you don't strain or injure yourself, then this course is going to be helpful.
The course is video-based, and there are a variety of camera angles showing each example in detail. There are also PDF files of the sheet music for each musical example and piece in both regular notes and guitar tablature.
Having good technique is important when you're playing classical guitar, but it's equally important to have an outlet where you can use those techniques. That's why this course finished by helping you learn to play 3 great pieces of music, "Alman" by Luis Milan, "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" by J.S. Bach, and the famous "Spanish Romance."
The great thing about working on your technique in advance is that you will find the process of learning and playing pieces less difficult and more enjoyable.

This lecture will introduce you to right hand arpeggio technique. An arpeggio is when you play the notes of chord one at a time, as opposed to all together. Arpeggio is one of the most commonly used textures in classical and finger-style guitar music.
This lecture will show how to use a special right hand technique called rest-stroke. Rest stroke is different in that the right hand finger pushes through the string and comes to rest on the adjacent string. Rest stroke is great for playing notes that you want to emphasize or have sing out in a piece of music that you are playing.
This lecture will show you how to transition between 2 notes smoothly using slurs. In guitar playing, a slur that goes up in sound is called a hammer-on, and a slur that goes down in sound is called a pull-off. Many guitarists are already familiar with these techniques, so we’ll look at the best ways to accomplish these techniques.
This lecture will show the positioning and technique for playing natural harmonics. This is a really cool special effect that’s fun to play and an audience favorite.
This video is an example of the piece “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J.S. Bach that ou can refer back to as you are learning and playing the piece
