William Kanengiser: Effortless Classical Guitar
Apr 26 2014
Here is a unique chance to learn classical guitar from a master. William Kanengiser shows you how to develop proper sitting positions, rest and free strokes, rasguedos, right- and left-hand synchronization and technique, slurs, and stretching exercises. You’ll discover all this from a superb player and teacher who is one of the world’s most honored classical guitarists.
William Kanengiser has been praised by the Los Angeles Times for his dizzying execution and exceeding vitality and warmth. He is recognized as one of America’s most brilliant guitarists, and has won numerous awards such as First Prize at the Concert Artists Guild Competition as well as major international competitions in Toronto and Paris.
Kanengiser has a very clear, understandable approach to teaching you not only the “hows”, but the “why’s” of basic classical guitar technique, basing his teachings on the fundamental rules of anatomy and kinesiology that govern how our hands and arms work, with the objective of teaching you how to play the guitar in the most relaxed and natural fashion possible. This is where the “Effortless” part of the title comes from, not that learning any instrument is “effortless”, but that if you follow the principles in this DVD, you will not have to fight bad habits that can make good technique more difficult. Kanengiser uses a number of creative visual aids to help you understand the relationship between your fingers and the strings. He also projects a kind of congenial warmth and good humor that makes it enjoyable to watch the DVD a few times over.
The material contained on the DVD is very similar to that on Scott Tenant’s “Pumping Nylon” DVD.
