In the Privatization chapter, we shall learn to activate each hand and finger separately.
That is way I named this chapter: Privatization.
We will practice the right hand thumb on the bass strings, than the right hand fingers, on
the soprano strings. Then, we will practice each of the left hand's finger separately.
The Privatization chapter is an important preparation for the next chapter:
Chapter II. Combinations
In this chapter we shall combine the individual elements into integrated
and coordinated playing actions: First, the right hand thumb playing against the other
fingers, than gradually we shall combine the left hand fingers...
Chapter III. First pieces
Now let's say you are a guitarist on the road... and it is about time that you will play
some pieces for your friends, parents, teachers or any one. In this chapter you will find
some really nice pieces such as: Johnathan the Tiny, a short Baroque piece, Walls, Autumn
leafs, Malaguena and even Blues.
Do learn some of them by heart; - like the Walls, Blues, etc. - they are easy and
Chapter IV. Notes
Here, we shall gradually learn how to read and play from notes.
It will be much easier now, as we already know the basic playing
positions, so we can concentrate on the notes.
note by note, finger by finger, string by string we shall play from notes.
In this chapter you will cross some beautiful tunes
as a preparation for the last chapter:
Chapter V. My first guitar repertory
I selected a lullaby as an opening tune for this Chapter.
It is an amazing beautiful melody by its innocence and simplicity.
Than we shall play some short guitar pieces written by great guitar artists, like:
Giuliani, Carcassi, Carulli
and Sor. I strongly recommending you to learn these compositions
by heart ...while you are improving your sound and dynamics for an intimate performance
for friends or family .
