Hello, a new member here. Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I am completely new to guitar playing (just know to play piano / read notation) and I am interested in eventually playing a guitar classical style. My question is - what learning path should I take? Should I start with the general introductory course first or jump straight to the classical style lessons?


My question comes from the fact that many aspects of the classical style seem to differ from the basic style - like using fingers instead of a pick, the posture/holding the guitar etc. However, the classical style lessons are included in the expert section, and it seems that sometimes there are techniques referred there which I have no idea about. 


So which route is recommended? Thanks in advance!

If you are solely interested in classical style playing, then I recommend starting on the classical style page.  Even though they are not grouped into a linked course, the tutorials are organized into a structured curriculum on this page.

I plan on adding more beginner level pieces in the next few months.  If you have questions please ask in my instructor directory.

If you find you want more material for beginner level playing you might enjoy the fingerpicking lessons Anders does in the Fundamentals course.


Hope that helps.  Best of success!

Dive into the four learning styles: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and reading/writing.

Start with a general introductory course that will familiarize you with basic guitar concepts, such as how to hold the guitar, strings, how to read tabs, and basic techniques. This will also help you build a solid foundation before moving on to classical style lessons. geometry dash lite


Once you have the basic knowledge and skills, you can continue with classic style lessons. These lessons will focus on techniques typical of the classical style such as fingerstyle playing, reading and playing classical tablature, and mastering the styles and rules of classical music.
