Basic Rest Stroke

 

On this page you can find links to recordings of some of the music in the Basic Rest Stroke book, along with the accompanying score. To purchase this book please visit our online store.

Purpose of the Downloads

The downloads are intended to provide a standard of comparison to enable the thinking individual to answer questions such as the following:

“How do I know if I have practiced enough?”

“My present assignment is so boring! When can I play more interesting music?”

OR

“When my teacher asks me to repeat an assignment, I panic. I think maybe I’m not progressing fast enough. Am I correct or not?”

“How much of my practice should be devoted to accurate, steady playing, how much to expression?

“As a guitarist with more than ten years of study, I have gone through several methods and learned standard repertoire. Yet, I cannot play even a single piece straight through with confidence. What is wrong with me?”

“I was inspired to take up guitar by the recordings of Segovia. If I practice really hard, how long will it take for me to play like him?”

OR

“I have been playing for six months, why don’t I sound like Segovia?”
