Classical Guitar Sprezzatura is a guitar lesson for guitar players of any style who wish to either learn fingerstyle guitar techniques or to improve their fingerstyle guitar playing. This guitar tutorial is a perfect foundation to any guitar style be it jazz, flamenco, classical, blues or for even the rock guitarist who wants to work on rock ballads. Dr. Mark Switzer demonstrates the foundational right hand techniques typically found in classical guitar, breaks each down very simply and then provides the student with exercises designed to perfect each technique for use with any style of music.
What makes this guitar DVD lesson different is the way the camera shows the right hand technique of the rest stroke and free stroke from the student’s perspective which makes the material far easier to absorb. This guitar tutorial also focuses on teaching the foundational techniques instead of teaching licks or a single song. This guitar lesson therefore teaches how to play the guitar well rather than how to play a single song.
For the price of a DVD, the guitar student obtains multiple lessons that can be paused and rewound as many times as they want instead of paying for lesson after lesson. This guitar tutorial also serves as a wonderful supplement for a guitar instructor to use with their students to address the foundations of rest stroke, free stroke, and left hand technique. Basic exercises are also shown to aid in the development of the techniques.
The techniques presented in this DVD are not just the product of Mark’s 40 plus years with the guitar but rather it is a continuance of a long tradition which he learned from maestro Pepe Romero and from his father Celedonio Romero, who worked with Daniel Fortea, who was a pupil of Francisco Tarrega, the “father of the modern guitar.”
