The Original Hanon Transcriptions for Guitar contained in Guitar Master's "Hanon" build agility, independence, and strength in the fingers. The exercises in the book were transcribed from the classic exercises in "Hanon the Virtuoso Pianist." the most famous work by renown composer, C.L. Hanon, for technical training.The first "Hanon for Guitar" published by Alfred Music Co. in 1960 was written in open position covering only one and a half octaves. Guitar Master's "Hanon," published in two volumes, covers the full three octaves. Students learn to shift from one position to another and read in the higher positions of the fingerboard.




"My study of Hanon was very influential in understanding how to move over a scale...Hanon presents patterns for the scale which aid a musician when improvising and enhance musical growth both technically and conceptually."
