The product of a 14 year research project, this book contains over 350 studies to thoroughly train the right hand of classical guitarists in the use of all five fingers - adding the little finger to the present four finger technique. These studies build a five-finger technique in the playing of chords, arpeggios, tremolos and harmonics, beginning with the thumb and one-finger combinations and increasing in complexity to the thumb and four fingers. The studies are played over easy, yet interesting, left hand progressions up and down the fingerboard. Postlewate demonstrates how to develop your own right hand studies by including examples from standard classical guitar repertoire pieces by Fernando Sor, Federico Moreno Torroba and Heitor Villa-Lobos at the end of the book. This book is a companion to MB 98711 - HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS and other compositions (music composed, transcribed, arranged and edited by Charles Postlewate for the guitar, using five fingers of the right hand) and its accompanying 60-minute CD, HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS (MB 98711CD).

Spanish Description

[Este libro es el resultado de un proyecto de investigación de 14 años de duración. Este incluye más de 350 estudios para entrenar la mano derecha del guitarrista clásico a usar los cinco dedos-añadiendo el dedo meñique a la técnica actual de cuatro dedos. Estos estudios desarrollan una técnica de cinco dedos para tocar acordes, arpegios, trémolos y armónicos, empezando con combinaciones del pulgar y un dedo y aumentando en complexidad al uso del pulgar con los cuatro dedos. Los estudios se tocan sobre progresiones fáciles, pero interesantes, de la mano izquierda por el diapason. Postlewate le muestra cómo desarrollar sus propios estudios para la mano derecha a base de ejemplos del repertorio tradicional de la guitarra clásica por Fernando Sor, Federico Moreno Torroba y Heitor Villa-Lobos incluídos al final del libro. Este libro acompaña a MB 98711-HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS and Other Compositions (HOMENAJE A VILLA-LOBOS y otras composiciones: música compuesta, transcrita, arreglada y editada para la guitarra, usando los cinco dedos de la mano derecha por Charles Postlewate) y el CD de 60 minutos, HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS (HOMENAJE A VILLA-LOBOS) - MB 98711CD.]
