Exercise 91 to 100 - NBN Membership

Mauro Giuliani's 120 studies or exercises for the right hand are undoubtedly among the most recognisable and famous of all technical studies for the guitar. Mauro was a recognised virtuoso in the early part of the 19th century and his contribution to the guitar was staggering. These 120 exercises will help you to gain control over your right-hand enabling you to play a vast variety of pieces in any style.

There are only 2 chords used throughout the etudes:

Chord 1: C-major (C, E, G)
Chord 2: G7 (G, B, D, F)

The right-hand fingers used are:

P: Thumb (Pulgar)
i: index
m: middle
a: anular (ring)

Tips:

1. Keep your right hand steady
2. Restrict movement to the large joints of the hand (not too much bouncing)
3. Let your fingertips flow across the strings like a paint brush
4. Don't grab at the strings
5. Try to keep your wrist straight without too much bending
6. Relax
