PLAY­ING TIPS

Cd track 41

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: CLASSICAL -

[Bar 21] At bar 21 the as­cend­ing melody stays on the sec­ond string and then at 22 I find it help­ful to land on the first A chord us­ing a hinge barre – this where the top A note is pressed down with the side of the first fin­ger rather than the tip. It makes the change from the pre­vi­ous chord shape eas­ier. Pick­ing hand fin­ger­ing is in­di­cated in bar 22 and I play the open E notes in the melody with a light rest stroke. This puts the sec­ond fin­ger onto the sec­ond string and there­fore im­me­di­ately ready to pluck the chord with no re-plac­ing of the fin­ger. It’s a handy tech­nique once you get the hang of it.
