For the finale of this series of lessons from Adam del Monte, here’s his lesson on playing faster scales. He’s playing a negra by Alejandro, which he chose because it sounds great but also because it was one of the funnest guitars to play scales on in the showroom. For more from Adam on scales and technique generally you can check out his website,

    The way you explained that the arm should not generate the speed but it is the wrist that will the finger movement is a revelation to me. And i really like that advice. Thanks a lot.

  2. Very clear explanation. I do wish there was a little clarification of the ’emptying out’ idea.
    Very generous teaching…
    Thank you Adam!
