    I just picked up the guitar again after 20 or so years of not playing. My husband thought I was nuts because he by no means new I could play. This video can teach you to bring out the gorgeous sound of the guitar even if you are virtually a beginner. You don’t need to be able to read music either. I recommend this to anyone. The songs are hauntingly gorgeous.

    Welcome to classical guitar and a musical approach., October 5, 2004

    In this program (a generous 75 minutes) Fred Hand takes us through proper approach, techniques and routine of classical guitar. He moves at a leisurly, comfortable pace and emphasizes the goal is to make music, not just to play guitar.

    Fred does not play quick, speedy lines and he takes time to clarify each piece as well as why and how he works out his parts. If your an advanced classical player there may be too small/too late culture for your interest. This is a perfect lesson for someone like myself, a long time rock and roller who needs a proper approach to classical guitar.

    A fine lesson that covers many bases and is brilliant for playes of many levels.

    I plot on getting his second title also “Seven pieces for classical guitar”.

    This is the next best thing to studying with a classical guitar instructor. Hand gives the viewer a crash course in classical technique, offering tips on everything from posture to fingernails to vibrato. The audio and video are first rate, although I was a bit distracted by the blue light effect that made Hand’s hair look like a terrible wig.

    Frederic Hand’s resume is impressive. Having studied below the renowned guitarist Julian Bream he has since performed, composed, and recorded for 30 years effective with the likes of Luciano Pavoratti, Placido Domingo, and Zubin Mehta. He puts his expertise to work for the viewer in this video covering pieces like John Dowland’s Lady Hunnsdon’s Puffe and a dance by Gaspar Sanz, as well as Hand’s own compositions, A Celtic Tale, Heartsong and Lesley’s Song with accompanying sheet music for all. Highly recommended.
