To learn classical guitar, every finger mark and we have a separate function. To more clearly its view the image below:
Left finger is marked with a sequence of numbers from 1-4 starting from the index finger.
And right finger marked alphabetical order p, i, m, a, and ch (pulgar, indice, mid, annular, and chico).
To get the guitar that well then we should pay attention to posture and hold the guitar properly. Here is an example and a few things to note:
- Use a high chair without arm fit, which is about 40-50 cm.
- Sitting in the front as much as possible of the seat (not leaning back on the back of a chair).
- Put your left foot on the foot braces (foot stool) and point straight ahead. Height of foot stool can be adapted to the physical conditions of each of us.
- Place the base of the guitar on the left leg, right at the curved section of the waist of the guitar. Neck of the guitar should be tilted upward so that the head of the guitar parallel to shoulder height. It is very necessary to gain optimal coverage and reasonable from our left hand.
- Place the elbow of the right hand so that your right hand can move freely and pressing down the guitar in the style of its own weight.
The Right Hand Position
To get a good right hand position, follow the few steps below:
- Align all the fingers with palms facing down, set the distance from your wrist to the front panel guitar about as far as 5-6 cm.
- Relax your whole finger down from the wrist so that the fingers curved shape.
- Without changing the distance from the wrist, turn the direction of the finger so that the palms face front panel guitar.
