Solo instrument (Acoustic Guitar [notation])
Instrumental parts
Not available

Nothing more nor less than thumb exercises over open strings at steadily increasing speed from 40bpm to 160bpm. Simple exercise in hand placement and right (plucking)hand thumb technique. Emphasis should be on smooth execution. Master at all speeds, but start SLOWLY!

When playing Spanish Guitar the mobility of fingers and thumb is greater than pure classical styles. Resting the fingers on 1 serves as a check for relative position of thumb and fingers and can set up a good hand position under proper guidance. Download the MP3 as a metronome…. If you get tired stop and rest!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
