This is the first compilation of guitar music for a right hand technique that includes the little finger. The 12 complete compositions include original pieces by Charles Postlewate (Homage to Villa-Lobos, Variations on a Theme of Prokofiev and Improvisation on Green Dolphin Street), transcriptions of piano pieces by Claude Debussy (La puerta del vino and Dr. Gradus ad Parnassum), arrangements of Peruvian popular songs (José María and Virgins of the Sun) and new editions of standard repertoire pieces - two studies by Fernando Sor and the beautiful tremolo study by Agustín Barrios, An Alm for the Love of God. Postlewate also includes excerpts of two other standard repertoire pieces by Federico Moreno Torroba (Sonatina) and Heitor Villa-Lobos (Prelude #2) - which are published elsewhere under copyright restrictions - to show the advantage of using the little finger. These pieces demonstrate new right hand techniques for the classical guitar that use the little finger in the playing of scales, chords, arpeggios, tremolos and harmonics. They also show the advantage of using the little finger for speed, accuracy, strength and balance. This book is a companion to  RIGHT HAND STUDIES FOR FIVE FINGERS using Chords, Arpeggios, Tremolos and Harmonics , also by Charles Postlewate.Spanish DescriptionEsta es la primera recopilación de música para la guitarra usando una técnica de la mano derecha de cinco dedos que incluye el dedo meñique. Las 12 composiciones completas incluyen piezas originales por Charles Postlewate (Homenaje a Villa-Lobos, Varicaciones sobre un tema de Prokofiev e Improvisación sobre La calle del delfín verde), transcripciones de piezas para piano por Claude Debussy (La puerta del vino y Dr. Gradus ad Parnassum), arreglos de canciones populares peruanas (José María y Vírgenes del sol) y nuevas ediciones de piezas del repertorio tradicional-dos estudios por Fernando Sor y el bello estudio de trémolo por Agustín Barrios, Una limosna por el amor de Dios. Además, Postlewate incluye extractos de otras dos piezas del repertorio tradicional de Federico Moreno Torroba (Sonatina) y de Heitor Villa-Lobos (Prelude #2)-las cuales han sido publicadas y están protegidas bajo derecho de autor-para mostrar la ventaja de usar el dedo meñique. Estas piezas muestran nuevas técnicas de la mano derecha para la guitarra clásica que usan el dedo meñique para tocar escalas, acordes, arpegios, trémolos y arpegios. También muestran la ventaja de usar el dedo meñique para aumentar la velocidad, la exactitud, la fuerza y el equilibrio. Este libro acompaña a RIGHT HAND STUDIES FOR FIVE FINGERS using Chords, Arpeggios, Tremolos and Harmonics (ESTUDIOS PARA LOS CINCO DEDOS DE LA MANO DER*E*CHA usando acordes, arpegios, trémolos y armónicos) también por Charles Postlewate.
