Micro Study 1
This lesson is all about that stalwart: A major arpeggio over 2 octaves. It comes up a lot in classical guitar music. But more that that it is a template for getting your shifts and fingers up to speed. Use the idea of fast then slow on anything you wish to push into the stratosphere – it works.
Micro Study 2
This lesson extends the last micro study: B7 arpeggio over 2 octaves. It comes up a lot in classical guitar music, and is hand for improvisation in the key of E major. But more that that it is a template for getting your shifts and fingers up to speed. And for getting your left hand fourth finger up to strength. Use the idea of fast then slow on anything you wish to push into the stratosphere – it works.
Micro Study 3
This lesson is all about legato left hands: the hammer-on. It utilizes a very short fragment of finger cycles to push the hammer-on technique. These will not work up to speed unless you are relaxed, which involves some repetition.
Micro Study 4
This lesson is all about legato left hand: the pull-off. It utilizes a very short fragment of finger cycles to push the pull-off technique. And follows on from the last micro study. Use the both together to get a full legato work out.
