For those wishing to Learn Classical Guitar there are plenty of books available, but it is really hard to decide on which will truly help you Learn Classical Guitar. I have included a few of the ones that I personally found to be the best available. Jason Waldron has done a superb job in bringing the Classical Masters to the Classical Guitar for beginner and intermediate players. The fact that he is one of the World’s best players has helped him greatly in being able to transpose these pieces to the guitar and they all sound great. They are all pieces that most students exposed to the Classics will be familiar with and this helps greatly in playing with the correct rhythm and timing. This greatly speeds the average persons ability to quickly learn Classical Guitar.
Another of my personal favourites is Scott Tennants “Pumping Nylon” Scott has written a masterpiece for developing the correct technique for both left and right hands, whenever I am having difficulty with my technique for a new piece I find that spending a couple of days on Scott’s exercises soon solves the problem.
There is a small selection of books to the left and they can also be found at (Play Classical Guitar).
This brings me to another question that has been raised by one of my readers, and that is how do left handed children learn to play guitar? Well there are two or three solutions often they play a right handed instrument in exactly the same manner as a right handed child, this is because both hands are required to do relatively complex and unrelated tasks in order to play. The other solution is a left handed instrument, these can be bought and in the list of guitars I have included a left handed model.Then some guitars such as my Yamaha can be strung either way as either left or right handed as the bridge consists of a slotted piece of plastic with a triangular shaped insert which is tallest under the base strings, this can be reversed when the strings are removed and the instrument strung in the reverse sequence, thus turning it into a left handed instrument. The only remaining difficulty is in finding left handed tabulature, most of the lefties I have come across reverse the right handed tabulature and become very proficient at it.
