Beginning With Tremolo

Tremolo is one of the coolest sounding things in classical guitar. Unfortunatly the composer on wholenote does no justice for tremolo. Here we will use a simple chord progression.
Finger the chord with your left hand and with your right hand use your thumb to climb the strings and use an a m i or ring middle index pattern to play the 1st string. I suggest starting off really slow with a metronome. Set your metronome to something slow like 60 and slowly up the tempo as you get comfortable until you can play it as fast as you want. When you build up enough speed this sounds really cool. Another reason to start off slow is that your tremolo will sound more even. After you master this look for the sequel to this lesson which I will be posting shortly. As usual enjoy!!
