Overview

The classical guitarist's technique handbook

Upon its first publication in 1995, Pumping Nylon became an instant classic and a must-have technique handbook for all classical guitarists---and many guitarists of other styles as well. This complete edition includes additional early intermediate through advanced repertoire. Scott Tennant's encouraging style, sense of humor, and unique approach to technical training helped Pumping Nylon gain countless devotees throughout the world. At the heart of Pumping Nylon is the famous Daily Warm-Up Routine, which includes 11 clever, helpful exercises to get both hands in shape and ready to play while also improving your technical skills. These invaluable technique lessons are supplemented by Giuliani's 120 Right-Hand Studies, Tarrega arpeggio studies, and music examples from Bach, Turina, and Rodrigo. In addition, original compositions by guitar luminaries Brian Head and Andrew York reinforce the material while also providing concert-worthy repertoire.

This second edition of Pumping Nylon Complete incorporates even more great material with new pieces by Evan Hirschelman, Guiliani's Left Hand Studies, Op. 1, and new technical exercises in tremolo and balancing chord voicings. The music engravings have been improved for easier readability, and a brand-new correlating video, available to download or stream, has been included.

If Pumping Nylon Complete is already in your library, it's time to upgrade to this second edition, which is even better than the original. If you are just now discovering Scott Tennant's masterpiece, this is a great opportunity to jump on board and start enjoying this classic. Your practice routine and technical prowess will improve, and you'll have fun as you learn.
