Classical Guitar Without Nails (Part 4) LESSON DESCRIPTION:
I'm almost done with this mini-series on playing classical guitar without nails.
In this video I walk through seven different elements of the technique that it takes to play classical guitar, no nails style, with just the fingertips.
I know this is a pretty niche topic, but there isn't much information on it out there on no nails playing.
I think these videos will be a helpful resource as more and more people seem to be interested in playing classical guitar but don't want to deal with having long, delicate fingernails on one hand.
Also, learning and creativity feel so much more potent when switching things up and exploring a variety of styles and sounds that can influence each other.
For example, while working on the classical guitar without nails techniques featured in today's video, I came up with a simple fingerstyle/solo-guitar arrangement of Autumn Leaves.
I'm excited to share that arrangement with you in a few weeks.
But I'm getting ahead of myself :)
Next week will be the final video on playing classical guitar without fingernails, then I have some fun fingerstyle lessons, and more jazz videos coming up after that.
