Five Waltzes for Pick-Style Guitar
Etudes for developing left- and right-hand technique.
NYC-based guitarist Koran Agan wrote these five etudes to provide high-quality practice material for guitarists in gypsy jazz and related styles. By working through these pieces, you’ll develop left-hand technique through a wide range of arpeggios across multiple positions, and you’ll improve your right-hand picking using both alternate and rest-stroke techniques.
Use our interactive player to view the standard notation and tablature, listen to Koran’s own recordings of the etudes and slow down/loop the audio. You can even mute the lead guitar to hear the isolated rhythm section as a “playalong” track. Enjoy!
