I got inspired to write a series of six studies in an idiomatic style.
These first six etudes are clearly influenced by my first and gretaest inspiration for the modern classical guitar: Leo Brouwer’s ”Estudios Sencillos” nr 1-10..
My Etudes contains also references to Brouwer's other pieces that you will notice...
If you like the pieces, feel free to share them with other guitarists.
Study no 1-6
In 1990 I studied guitar and composition with Angelo Gilardino in Vercelli, Italy. He introduced me to the ”mechanical technique”. That had an crucial impact in my development as a guitarist. This collection of exercises I started to write after my study period, at a time when I also was teaching the classical guitar. I saw amazing progression among my pupils and now, 30 years later: here is the original manuscript containing the 80 exercises.
Some of the exercises:

In my youth I arranged some traditional music from Jämtland, Northern Sweden for solo guitar. The typical dance is called polska. Here is a collection of 16 polskas, printed in an era when dot matrix printer was hi-tech and the first notation programs had just appeared on the market. :)
