The book, The Classic Arpeggio Book for Guitar by Richard Stover, was a component in my undergrad program. It is a compilation of various arpeggio etudes by different composers and includes the Guilani 120 Right Hand Studies.

It might be a good resource for you!

Hi Ben,

His site is http://www.hochweber.ch/guitar.htm

Hi tks the input, my idea is that I am Not need for any studies but need any pieces like villa lobos etude no1 which can practice everyday, more advance than say 120 studies

for me the best is : Study no. 5, Op. 48 by Mauro Giuliani and the explanation of Gohar Vardanyan on YT.

I have been working from a book by Hubert Kappel. "Die 44 wichtigsten gitarrenetueden fuer die Mittelstufe"
He takesfamous guitar etudes and groups them into studies for arpeggios, slurs ,position changes etc.
One i have found very useful is Carcassi op 60 no 2. I play first as block chords then use the chord sequence for trying out different arpeggio patterns.
This seems far more interesting than ploughing through Guiliani arpeggios.

Estudio Brilliante by Tarrega will keep you occupied for a while.

I like the Leo Brouwer study. I forget the number now but someone will help me I am sure. A tuneful piece and can be learned with different right hand combinations.

Try practising simple arpeggios with staccato. Use the same finger that plucks to stop the string Ie place - play - pause.this promotes independence, control and economy of movement of the rh Imo.

Probably Etudes Simples # 6. Very tuneful and can be played with different right hand fingerings.

It's funny that you should suggest this one when you did as I just started playing this yesterday before I read this post. Very nice little study that sounds good both at a slower tempo and sped up. There's also the interesting twist with the change in time signature from 3/4 to 2/4 at the end which takes some getting used to.

Yes and I actually like it not played too fast, though that's a good exercise for sure. That time change is one of the things that makes it so nice musically imho.

Carcassi Study No. 7, in A Minor from the 25 Studies, Op. 60. Combines several common finger patterns, including one tremolo-like pattern. It's been a warm-up for me for years. If you've got the chops, it can actually be a flashy little technical piece if played at a fast tempo.
