PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - CLASSICAL -

[Bars 1-24] The main aim is to play res­o­nant sound­ing, sus­tained chords with a clearly au­di­ble melody line at the top. I use‘ spread’ chords quite a lot, es­pe­cially on the first beat of the bar to cre­ate a fuller sound. The fret­ting hand needs to work quite hard to keep pres­sure on each chord for as long as pos­si­ble un­til the chord changes, and the pick­ing hand must try not to damp

chords.
