“The Art of Guitar – Extended Techniques” by George Vassilev
The present edition is a methodological development on various problems related to the technical improvement of the guitarist.
This method is a result of a 25-year research as well as of years of pedagogical experimental work of the author with his students from the Music Academy in Lausanne – Sion site (www.hemu.ch), Switzerland, during the period 2001-2017.
