ÊÒThe aim of this book is to gather in one place a compendium of techniques specific to the classical guitar.ÊÊEach technique has a written explanation, preliminary exercises and two original compositions, providing the opportunity to use the techniques in a musical context.ÓÊ Steve Marsh Mel Bay Publications was founded on MelÕs simple pretext of Òfinding a need, and filling it.ÓÊÊMel Bay author, Steve Marsh, continues in that tradition with the publication ofÊThe Anthology of Classical Guitar Techniques, a highly original concept that fills a distinct need in the guitar study repertoire.ÊÊGraded from lower intermediate to higher intermediate in difficulty, this anthology avoids fundamental skills known to most beginners and goes straight to intermediate-level techniques such as: arpeggio, barr, campanella, glissando, harmonics, pizzicato, rapid scales, rasgueado, tambour, tremolo, vibrato, and more. Each of the 32 techniques is illuminated with preliminary studies and two original compositions, all written in standard notation only. If youÕre ready to take the next step with the classical guitar, this book will improve your technique and musicianship in general, increase your ability to listen to yourself critically, and so lead to more productive practice sessions.
