In this free acoustic guitar video lesson, we will take a look at the classical guitar technique of tremelo.
Now don't think you have to be a classical guitarist to use this. It will work fantastic for every style of guitar. I just happens to be used mostly by classical guitarists since there are some beautiful classical guitar pieces that use the tremelo technique from beginning to end.
I began this video lesson with a little demonstration of what can be done with the tremelo technique by playing the beginning of a piece called Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Memories of the Alhambra) by Francisco TÃ¡rrega. I suggest checking out the complete piece. I may even do full video lesson on it if enough people request it. 😀
Be sure to play close attention to the evenness of the melody line notes. In the video I demosntrate a quick little practice technique that you can use that will get the timing down a lot easier. Even though this technique does require a bit of speed to give the intended illusion of an sustained melody note, you should definitely start out slow when first studying the technique. Then, gradually build up speed followed by learning a complete piece of music using the tremelo technique.
But don't stop there! Try and write your own music using this techniuqe, it can be a very inspiring method of writing.
Don't forget to downalod the TAB PDF that goes along with this video lesson below.
Have fun and take your time while getting the timing of this technique nailed.
