At no its history was it as great in prominence as it is today. At no time time in the life of the guitar has there been so many styles played as proficiently as today. We have the moden plectrum, the electric spanish, the country-western, flamenco ond classic. The classic guitar is at the height of its popularity today. The style of instrument, type of music and technique of playing has not changed radically in the past hundred years. The music of Carcassi, Aguado, Carulli, Sor and Tarrega is still tops in literature and is played beautifully by the leading artists today. The greatest difficulty for the beginner has been the lack of an effective approach to that literature. The creation of this method of classic guitar playing has been to make the road to great literature an easy one.
