About This Lesson

Thomas Viloteau teaches his approach to developing a tremolo that is both rhythmically even and musically flexible. The lesson begins with an explanation of Viloteau’s personal experience learning the technique and why it is important - when applying it to a piece - to always put the music first.

He then goes into the basic P-A-M-I movement and shares two crucial tools for working out the kinks in your tremolo - a metronome and your smart phone. This is followed with Viloteau’s three types of tremolo techniques which are each demonstrated in the context of Augustin Barrios’ masterpiece El Ultimo Tremolo.
