Volume 1 of Classic Guitar Technique presented a systematic approach for gradual musical and technical development toward mastery of this noble instrument. No effort has been spared in study, research, and experiment to continue the same approach in Volume 2. The full value of these works will be grasped only by those students who are willing to contribute a similar effort on their own part, both in a sympathetic approach to the contents of the books, and a constant evaluation of personal problems which a text by its very nature is unable to consider. This text should be used with its supplements to coordinate a program of study that will comply with the requirements of the individual student.
