  • Excellent Lesson Lily I have been playing for 45 years and have to still be very careful with my right han i always have to remember where my hand is supposed to be and sometimes I llok at my right hnd and I see or think I see a problem with my right hand little finger i SOMETIMES DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH it short of cutting it off and it tends to stick out someties which I think ceates tension I belive this is why I never developed my trmolo wher I anted it although I now can play it comfortably a about 95 on the metronome. I also think my hand may move around more than it should. Sometimes too I think my fingers work better when I on’t plant but I do practise this technique. I hav mastered I believe the sreaight wrist and relaxed hand. When I first started classical guita years ago I was taught more of the Segovia hand position which was more of a bent wrist and a higher ach this position i believe creates tension and todays best players have gotten away from that. Thanks Lily I belive your instruction will be very helpful to me and others!

    COOL!!!!

  • Samir Thomas says:

    Awesome and very well and clearly illustrated. She sure has a style.

  • Rob Blanks says:

    Very thorough technique. I can see she was taught very slow and methodical which is how you become a teacher. Makes me want to try it all over again back when I was into finger style a lot.

    I am very impressed with Lily’s style of instruction and I would love to purchase the course. How do I do that? I have a Yamaha G 230 classical guitar sitting next to my Gibson Les Paul studio guitar. I usually play jazz and blues, but have always been interested in classical guitar and flamenco guitar. I will wait instructions on how to purchase Lily’s Classical Guitar Secrets!

    AVAILABLE VERY SOON – PLEASE KEEP CHECKING THE BLOG AND YOUR EMAIL. _ CLAUDE

    Interesting! I’ve had classical instruction before and I really should take the time to practice it again but I’ve been so involved with electric. Classical guitar has such a beautiful sound.

  • Marcus says:

    Little more explaining what strings ur on, not easy for a beginner to know where a C is on the 5th fret, the light was not very good placed as u can see a reflection of it on the guitar and for me made it hard to see where u put ur fingers

    ITS A LOT OF CUT AND PASTE THAT I DID IN THIS VIDEO – ITS SHOWING A LOT OF LITTLE PIECES
    FROM DVD 1. THE REAL THING IS VERY IN DEPTH – CLAUDE

  • Marcus says:

    I meant on the 5th string, Sry no edit function :S

  • Gerard says:

    Hi Lily, you are very good on the Classical guitar. Listening to your playing is inspiring me to pick up my own Classical guitar and practice more regularly. Your little reminder about good habits for the right hand really helps too, as I have had some problems in the past with my right hand. Thank you for creating these videos.

  • ike says:

    Ok Claude, what is the price for your guitar lesson and does it includes lessons from Lily’s?……ike

  • ike says:

    Hey Claude, the bass guitar piece on your blog is a really tight piece of playing, thats the kind of tight rhythm i like. Maybe i should switch to the bass guitar…..ike

    I started studying and learning Classical Guitar but kept getting my left hand injured, breaking fingers, etc. I put a damper on my guitar studies. The last incident was with a chain saw, …lots of stiches. As I look now, I realize how fortunate I really am. Blessed. I still have my fingers, and now retired I am now picking up the guitar once again. Love your lesson Nice guitar playing. Count me in as a student!
