Classical guitar workouts

Studies of this quality provide a perfect daily, musical workout with plenty of subtle physical and artistic challenges.

Develop your technique

This collection of carefully chosen pieces will help you develop some fundamental, classical techniques, increase your knowledge of the fingerboard and add to your repertoire of great music. 

The module is made up of popular works by Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani who are major figures in the history of the guitar.  In each film the pieces are explained in detail and played by Richard and every lesson comes with a carefully edited and fingered, downloadable PDF.

Learn to read guitar music

As ever, Richard would encourage you to read the proper music which contains a wealth of information. This module is your chance to glide gracefully away from the limitations of tab and immerse yourself in the liberating and versatile world of musical notation. Remember, if you haven't seen it already, we have a module on Sight Reading for Guitar.

Great first module. Excellent clear tuition. I am enjoying the patterns and fast fingers on this one. Just got to keep practicing now for fluidity. So well explained and great to hear and see RD play this and talk through the piece. Thank you. This is bringing my guitar playing on no end. Fresh inspiration and ideas. Expert tuition. Nothing seems impossible anymore.
