In this part of the world I’m living in it is hard to find a proper trainer for Classical guitar lessons. Thanks again and we are really grateful to you. Nelson Velasquez January 19, 2015 at 4:47 am - Reply I use a technique similar to playing scales on the piano,the arm does no shift all the way from 1st position to 5th position,what I do is prepare the hand for smooth shifting,when the 4th finger plays G#,the 1st moves to G,you have to lift 2 and 3 just a bit to male room for 1,this way you only have to go from G to A instead of F to A. Simon January 28, 2015 at 9:24 pm - Reply Hi Nelson, That sounds great, I think its great to really analyze technique closely like that so we can see what’s going on, then work on refining it. Thanks for sharing. Simon Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
