PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: CLASSICAL -

[Bars 1-6] For the first few bars there is sug­gested fin­ger­ing in­di­cated for both hands. Fol­low this care­fully and aim to make the melody stand out from the ac­com­pa­ni­ment. In bars such as 2 and 6 where a long melody note has been played on the first beat, play­ing the sec­ond beat more softly is es­sGeUn­tIiTaAl-RweTwEaCnHt­tNhIeQaUc­cEoSm­p2an4y­i4ng notes to be crisp and neat but not to in­ter­fere with the melody. [Bars 14-32] On beat 3 of bar 14 a half barre takes care of two bars. On beat 3 of bar 22 use a five-string barre at the 10th fret and trans­fer it to the 7th fret on beat 3 of the next bar. At 31 I use a thumb strum on the A9 chord, then a sec­ond-fin­ger rest stroke on the D note be­tween the D chords. This puts the fin­ger on the 3rd string to im­me­di­ately play the fi­nal D chord, with­out any read­just­ment.
