Hints on Dust in the Wind: This is a very challenging song, especially on the solo section. It is played on free stroke, but you can add rest stroke to bring out the melody more. This is a long term project so treat it as such: Practice slowly at first, master what you have now before moving forward, play loudly.Other than the solo and a few minor parts, the right-hand fingers are assigned to play as follows: Ring finger plays 1st string, middle finger plays 2nd string, index finger plays 3rd string, thumb plays bass strings (4th, 5th, 6th).

Gitano Guitar Support http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/2013/02/06/gitano-guitar-support/ http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/2013/02/06/gitano-guitar-support/#comments Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:40:07 +0000 Administrator http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/?p=1438 gitano_LRG

I received the Gitano Guitar Support from a former student. We both used the traditional foot rest method to prop up our guitars, and he purchased the product to try out, and gave me one as a gift since he knew I would like it. He was right! The support is the best I’ve used, by far. The product attaches through two suction cups at the base, and depending on where you attach them on your guitar, the angle of the guitar can be adjusted to almost any degree. This support will allow the performer to sit down comfortably on a chair with both feet on the floor while the support does the lifting. This is definitely a more comfortable playing posture, and is great whether performing or practicing. In addition, the device folds close, allowing it to remain attached the whole time, even when in a gig bag or some cases. The product quality is great, and the price is fair.

Philip’s Learn all The Notes On The Guitar Flash Cards http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/2013/02/06/philips-learn-all-the-notes-on-the-guitar-flash-cards/ http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/2013/02/06/philips-learn-all-the-notes-on-the-guitar-flash-cards/#comments Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:16:21 +0000 Administrator http://classicalguitarblogger.com/blog3/?p=1430 Flash cards - the big picture

I was contacted recently by Philip Glaser, the creator of these flash cards, through my website. He is a new user of classicalguitarblogger.com, and thought that his flash cards would be of help to fellow guitarists. While I have not personally used his product, I have used this method with homemade flash cards to teach guitar notes to my students, and know that it can be a useful tool. Basically these flash cards include two sides, with one side having the staff notation of a note, while on the other side you see what the note name is and how to play that note on the guitar. Through repetition and making a game out of it, the student learns how to read the notes on the guitar and how to play them. All in all, the product seems good, useful to many guitarists, and available to purchase through various methods.
