The Bible of Classical Guitar Technique Detailed compendium on the basics and playing techniques of the guitar in the 21st century (Intermediate-Advanced)

by Hubert Kappel

This is more than just a book about technique. Hubert Käppel, a worldwide-recognised and successful classical concert guitarist, is one of the most exceptional artists in his field. His reputation as an instrumentalist and a guitar teacher is not disputed. He was the only German among the award winners at the "Concorso Internazionale di Interpretazione" and since then has played on concert tours across the globe. He has been leading Europes most successful guitar class at the Cologne University of Music for some time, started the "International Guitar Seminar Frechen/Colonge" and is a sought-after judge at international guitar competitions.

He left himself more than two decades to publish his "The Bible of Classical Guitar Technique", so that he could pour all of his teaching experience, which spans more than four decades, into his work. This is how a 246-page strong course book came into being, which will deliver material for guitarists for many years to come.

Of the books three large sections, the second, practical part makes up the bulk, containing many technique exercises (arpeggios, scale exercises, hammer-ons and pull-offs with the left hand, tremolo, flamenco techniques, speed training, vibrato techniques and dynamic exercises). This technical part is framed by theoretical topics: in the "Prerequisites and Basics", Hubert Käppel gives detailed tips for effective and systematic practice and how to move when playing. In the third part, the important topics of fingering techniques and memory training for playing by heart are tackled and comprehensive plans for daily practice cycles are presented. Through the meticulous system used when putting this book together, it has been possible to do without an index because of how detailed the contents page is.
