DU Seies trea Ma yeas so st tesa as-is pa ehaee ae = setae ot Sear fe gotetet of a's” early wane atts rate 60 Foreword These Etudes were written with the intermediate guitarist in mind, and are supposed to be graded from the third year of study upwards. Many techniques are covered, and the later etudes could also be used as concert pieces. In fact, the final five are a set in themselves, each showing a facet of Latin American music and dedicated to a particular composer. The Etudes as a set were written in a very short space of time (one a day!), but were extensively tested by friends and students, especially Alison Bendy, without whose expert editorial assistance this project would not have come to fruition. The set covers roughly the ground which Carcassi’s 25 Etudes cover, but in a slightly more up-to-date idiom. They are meant to be fun to play, and it is my hope that they will provide a musically as well as technically nourishing diet for all aspiring guitarists. The emphasis in the first ten Etudes is on attaining a stable right hand through the use of different patterns for p, iand m. Slurs for the left hand are also introduced in Etudes 4 and 7, while Etude 6 affords the opportunity to practice portamentos and glissandi. The Etudes from 11 to 20 exercise the afinger of the right hand, especially in combination with iand m (Etudes 11, 13, 15 and 17), and also concentrate on more advanced left-hand slurs (Etudes 13, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 20). The tamboras in Etude 15 may be played at the bridge or on the fingerboard (slapping the strings against it) according to taste. Etude 12 is a study for balancing chords under a melody, and Etude 19 is for the alternation of i and m on adjacent strings. My fingerings are offered only as suggestions throughout the Etudes, but students are urged to consider the rationale behind them before throwing them out! Gerald Garcia, Oxford 1995 These studies are what all students should be but usually are not: they use and develop specific areas of technique in a most musically imagi- native and pleasurable way. The more traditional study collections usually take a single technical pattern for each study which then become like extended exercises. Garcia’s studies give the same benefit and also give you pieces of music John Williams, July 1992 Music Typesetting: lan Baldwin and Gerald Garcia General Editor: Alison Bendy Etude No. 1 Gerald Garcia 1992 Marcato FL Pope Eph te £ a r fn Dolce e sostenuto ‘4 3 rall.
