Classical Guitar Beats

You may have read my interviews and posts with the extraordinary guitarist and enquiring mind, Jorge Caballero.

Welcome to Guitar Beats! This site is dedicated to the study of Classical Guitar, using advanced and innovative methodology. Our approach is innovative in that  total exploration of the psyche (mind, body) is employed to achieve mastery of the guitar.
