ISBN 9780786659654. With Text language: English, Spanish. Classic. 8.75 x 11.75 inches.

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).

    Adding the "little" finger to classic guitar right-hand technique is now an unavoidable trend. Postlewate has written landmark studies for methodical development. Beginners can work on the little finger, though this book requires some reading at an advanced beginner level. Highly recommended!
