Our first concert piece: Romance. A piece made famous by the Spanish guitarist Narciso Yepes who recorded it to become the soundtrack of a french movie "Forbidden games". It was the first great guitar classic launched by a movie.. the last one I can think of is Stanley Myers' Cavatina.
To play Romance, we will first focus on the right hand (the hand responsible for sound fabrication, literally). The right hand (from now on RH) will be playing an arpeggio.
Arpeggio = Playing the notes of a chord successively rather than simultaneously.
Use a guitar tuner to tune your guitar. You can always use your ears as backup.
Work on the model and get your RH oiled - To oil: Verb, to put oil into a machine to make it work more smoothly-. Do not play faster than necessary. You are playing too fast if you make mistakes. Nobody is hurrying you. Focus on sound and simply make sure that every string is projecting the sound you like. Practice this model 3 minutes at a time. Then rest and repeat for 3 more minutes. Do this a total of 3 times on your first practice session.
