In learning to play the classical guitar the left hand tends to involve most of the beginner's attention. However, the first concern in the teaching of an instrument is control of the elements that produce the sound. In the classical guitar this is mainly the task of the right hand. This method places the focus of attention on this point. Right hand technique requires the control of a great many finger combinations. The methodology used in this book is based on reducing these apparently unlimited possibilities to a few basic combinations which we shall refer to as mechanisms. These are presented so that they can be practiced separately with appropriate material composed for this purpose. Companion CD is included in this progressive method for the beginner; all presented in standard notation. In Spanish, German, French and English.

This collection of etudes, written during the 1970's, was composed as a result of Jimmy Wyble's explorations into the musical worlds of counterpoint, harmony and chord melody improvisation for the jazz guitar. The right and left hand fingerings presented in this book were also developed as techniques needed to improvise jazz in two lines. Jimmy uses very standard jazz guitar chord shapes in these etudes; however, these shapes move through the harmony in lines rather than block chord structures. This broken chord technique creates a unique contrapuntal sound that separates Jimmy from the rest of the fingerstyle jazz guitar world. It is hoped that jazz and classical guitarists playing and working through these etudes will see many familiar chord shapes moving in new ways and creating new sounds. These new harmonic sounds combined with beautiful melodies will inspire any quitarist to new levels of musical creativity. Written in notation and tablature. 92 pages.
