In 1923, pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff outlined a method of scale practice that didn’t rely on rôte learning and which he thought contributed to the world-wide success of Russian pianists in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This fifty-page booklet (6500 words, over twenty examples and illustrations, and thirty pages of scales) explores Rachmaninoff's ideas in the context of guitar study. Also included is an in-depth look at modifications to string-crossing technique required by high speeds. A cover page is included in case you wish to take the booklet to a copy shop and have it printed and bound (spiral binding recommended).
