1. News

Hi to all new and old subscribers!

Welcome to the June 2006 issue of Great Guitar Tips. There's two pieces of fr/ee music this month! One is a lovely Aguado allegretto I've added to the lessons page complete with study notes and a video and the second is the usual music that comes only with this e-zine.

And you'll get that because you subscribe! All for the cost of...

Yep that's right...zilch, zip, nada. Pitty those poor people who don't subscribe.

If you're feeling sorry for them you can do them a favor by sending them the subscribe page...

http://www.learnclassicalguitar.com/ezine.html

They'll probably thank you for it. (Or at least they should :))

Anyway, as well as the music I've written a new page about Leo Brouwer and added some great videos to some of the classical guitarist bio pages (see below for links).

So let's not waste a moment. I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter. Let's go!

2. New Addition to Lessons Page

The Aguado allegretto is a timely lesson in the sustained use of slur techniques. The actual ornamentation that Aguado used was very common in the classical period and is called a "turn". Read more on the free guitar lessons page...

(It's number 9 on the list)

3. New Bio Page - Leo Brouwer

Leo Brouwer is one of the most seminal minds in the world of classical guitar today. This is due not only to his God-given talent but to his wide-ranging experiences both in the world of classical guitar and the wider musical landscape. Read more here...

4. New Videos on Bio Pages

Talk about Bio pages, I have added some neat videos that really add a lot to each page. For instance, the above Brouwer page has a little video and you can see Segovia playing Sor's Variations on the Magic Flute by Mozart here...

The video is black and white but Segovia really "nails it". Similarly, there are some more videos on the John Williams page... The Pepe Romero page... And the Alirio Diaz page...

5. This Month's Fr/ee Music

And now for the music! This month's music is a great little Adagio by J.K. Mertz. According to Wikipedia.com he... "followed the pianistic models of Chopin, Mendelssohn and Schumann, rather than the classical models of Mozart and Haydn (as did Sor and Aguado), or the bel canto style of Rossini (as did Giuliani)." You can download it here...

Don't forget to right click and use "Save Target As" to your desktop (if you're using Windows). I hope you enjoy the music!

And that's all for this issue. See you next month:))
