About This Lesson

Aniello Desiderio discusses sound production and the development of your own “voice” on the guitar.

The lesson begins with Desiderio’s thoughts on the importance of creating a personal sound and how this facet of your playing comes “before everything.” This is followed by a general overview of effective nail shapes and how to use sandpaper for polishing.

After demonstrating several exercises, Desiderio concludes with his thoughts on slow practice and the significant role control plays in developing your technique.
