If you are not going to start with a teacher, then you will need a method book, not pieces to play. I recommend Aaron Shearer's Classical Guitar Technique, volumes 1 and 2, avaiable on the internet, as the copyright has expired. These are books you can go through without a teacher, and still develop correct technique. Once you finish book 2 (my guess is that it will take less than a year), I recommend that you get Stanley Yates' Classical Guitar Technique from Foundations to Virtuosity, volume 1. The reason for this is that while Shearer is a very good, step-by-step introduction to correct classical guitar technique, our notions of optimum technique have changed a lot in the past 80 years. Yates' book just appeared this year, and is a very detailed treatment of modern notions of technique: how to sit, exact movement of each finger, how to hold each arm, and much more. You will probably not want to do the exercises in Yates' book until you are a solid intermediate student, but you should definitely check your technique against Yates when you finish Shearer, if you are proceeding without a teacher.spanishguitarmusic wrote:As a beginner to classical guitar, I was wondering where a beginner should start?
