Exercise 1 on the E String

Übungen auf der E Saite - Schule für die Guitare



This Exercise No. 1 in A minor is taken from Johann Kaspar Mertz' Schule für die Guitare.

This guitar method was first published in Vienna in 1848 by Haslinger.

This Exercise No. 1 is part of the section Übungen auf der E-Saite [Exercises on the E String] in Mertz' guitar method.

It uses the technique of bariolage, with a melody on the lower strings alternating with the open E string.

This exercise is easy enough to be played by beginner guitarists.

The guitar student should make sure to bring forward the melody on the lower strings.

Duration : 00:33
