Here's yet another book that should be in every serious classical and flamenco guitarist's library; this time, Ioannis Anastassakis (The Art of Rasguedo) eliminates the guesswork on how to practice and perform the tremolo technique. The book addresses over 70 different approaches and methods to practice the tremolo with unprecedented advice from some of the greatest classical and flamenco guitarists including: Andres Segovia, John Williams, Sharon Isbin, Christopher Parkening, Pepe Romero, Scott Tennant, David Russell, Narciso Yepes, Stanley Yates, Stepan Rak, Juan Serrano, Manolo Sanlucar, Manolo Franco, Jose Antonio Rodriguez, Paco Serrano, and many more. Characteristically, Anastassakis presents an exhaustive analysis of the different tremolo patterns: 4-note, 5-note, 5-note extended melody tremolo, 6-note tremolo, 8-note tremolo, and continuous extended tremolo. A comprehensive bibliography of classical and flamenco guitar pieces that utilize traditional and/or extended tremolo techniques is also included. Written in standard notation and tablature.
