About This Course
Welcome to the Robert O’Brien Online Classical Guitar Voicing Course. This course was filmed during a master class I gave in my shop way back in the beginning of 2013. I have hesitated to edit it and make it available for a couple of reasons. First of all, I was concerned that the viewer wouldn’t be able to benefit as much as those that actually attended the class. It was a “hands on” class and obviously you as a viewer are not able to be involved in that process. Second, it was filmed in standard definition before I made the switch to high definition cameras. Recently I ran across this footage on my old hard drive and decided that neither of the two reasons I have mentioned were good enough to not make this footage available to others. In fact, the participants in this class have urged me to make it available. There is a ton of valuable information available in this course. Just the information on how to select soundboard material alone is worth the price of this video course. I think you will agree and know you will benefit from the information I present here gathered from years of experience building classical guitars.
This course is meant for the intermediate to advanced classical guitar builder and contains over 3 and ½ hours of quality instruction with all the information needed to make your classical guitar soundboard the best it can possibly be.
- How to select soundboard material
- Thicknessing and graduating
- The concept of stiff and loose
- What to listen for
- Shaping the braces
Please read the FAQ page before beginning. To begin just register/login and purchase the video lessons. You may then either stream or download the videos.
It has never been easier to learn the art of classical guitar voicing. Happy Building!
