1. News

Hi to all new and old subscribers!

Welcome to the September 2006 issue of Great Guitar Tips.

I've finally been able to buy that new camera and I'm on a steep learning curve! I also bought the Pinnacle Studio editing system and you can see my handiwork on the new lessons page below. I'm really excited because I was able to get a "Ken Burns" effect on a "still" picture at the start of the video. It adds a little more pizzazz and style to the video itself. Let me know what you think via the contact form on this page...

Also there's two pieces of fr/ee music this month. There are two great little Carulli pieces in A Minor for your playing pleasure.

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

4. Classical Guitar Books - My Best 3 Picks

I've had a bit of correspondence over the last few months with people asking me about the best book on the market for classical guitar. Invariably I give the same response and I haven't seen anything lately to change my mine. In my humble opinion you can't go past these excellent publications...

5. This Month's Fr/ee Music

And now for the music! This month's music is two little pieces in A Minor by Carulli. There is a Moderato and an Andantino and both are charming little pieces to help build your technique and skills. 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:))
