This is the best guide for learning how to play the classical guitar, among the ones I have seen. Unlike many other books which simply describe basic techniques, some exercises followed by musical pieces, this book attacks the fundamentals very deeply using various ingenius exercises (probably developed by the author). For example, from page 15, it teaches how to improve finger independence using #1 Four sets of exercises: put down or fix the fingers indicated on the third string, play the notes indicated with the free finger. #2 Six sets of exercises: moving two fingers and fixing two fingers #3. Opposing Motion #4 Horizonatal character builders #5 Odair's favorite drill #6 The spider. My favorate is Daily Warm-up Routine which is composed of 10 exercises. And I was surprised that these exercises really work ! The final part is Guiliani's 120 arpeggios. But the author divided them into 10 groups and suggests to attack each group one by one. For example, group 1 is from 1 to 10 plus 16, and 17. Group 2 is from 81 to 94, and so forth. This book also contains many illustrations of left and right hand motions, and descriptions of do's and dont's. An excellent guide book for the people who learn classical guitar without teachers.
