Ten Classical Etudes (PDF)
Ten Classical Etudes by Sor, Carcassi, & Giuliani
For intermediate classical guitar with fingerings, tips, and video Lessons. Comes with two editions: Notation & Notation + TAB. PDF Download (40 pages). Edited and Fingered by Bradford Werner. The level is intermediate (approx. RCM Grade 4-7).
The etudes have been arranged in a progressive order from easier to more difficult. The first and last etude emphasize the importance of using etudes to develop a musical technique. I have tested all these etudes with my students and found them to be very beneficial for learning musical and technical concepts. You can also find some of these works in hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.
