The Total Classical Guitarist teaches the essentials of classical guitar from beginning levels to late intermediate. This exciting method features in-depth lessons on right- and left-hand technique, posture, ornaments and slurs, performance aesthetics, fingernail care, and much more.

A CD demonstrating all of the examples in the book is included. Features: * Practical, easy-to-understand lessons in technique and posture * In-depth discussion of fingernails, including shape and maintenance * Comprehensive instruction on performing slurs and ornaments * Special techniques such as pizzicato, Bartok pizzicato, natural harmonics, artificial harmonics, tamboura, and tremolo * Musical considerations like dynamics, colors, articulations, rubato, and vibrato * Practicing strategies, including notes for crossover players and making the most of your practice time About the Author Martha Masters is an award-winning performer, recording artist, and educator.
