Fret­ting hand tech­nique

Guitar Techniques - - CLASSICAL -

Fret­ting hand tech­nique on the clas­si­cal gui­tar can be phys­i­cally ar­du­ous due to the num­ber of voices we have to play si­mul­ta­ne­ously: of­ten we re­quire held chords un­der­neath a melody line. Or a bass line, mid­dle ac­com­pa­ni­ment AND melody all to­gether. There is a lot of phys­i­cal fret­ting go­ing on and it can cause aching and tired­ness in the hand or arm. To build up stamina make sure you use sen­si­ble and ef­fi­cient fin­ger­ing, learn pieces slowly in small sec­tions, with re­laxed ac­cu­racy. Stop and rest for a mo­ment if aching oc­curs. And prac­tise reg­u­larly!
