Folias – a little tremolo study
2 Sep 2016
Heike Matthiesen

I used to give this piece to all my pupils in their first months of playing guitar… and they have no idea then that they learn something considered “difficult”!
Tremolo is the base for a perfect right hand, you learn how to treat the fingers “democratically”, dynamic control, speed of relaxation, speed of movement and tone quality balanced between all fingers can be learned with this technique.
So here a video of me playing it at home:
