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.

I saw amazing progression among my pupils and now, 30 years later: here is the original manuscript containing the 80 exercises.
