The recital repertoire is wonderful for demonstrating one's technique. However, finding precisely what piece and which measures are required to master or reinforce a particular technical ability, well, that can be a hit or miss proposition. The exercises on this page will pinpoint specific areas where all guitarists find difficulty at one time or another. Of course, some players may have less problems in certain areas than others, but there is something here for every player at any level of proficiency.

Left hand exercises are useful for any player performing in any genre. Right hand exercises will be targeted towards the classical player. There are pages for the Rock and Blues guitarist and all those who play the electric guitar.

Each week a new exercise or technique building session will be added to this page. Please click the link for the most current date for the latest session. Please check back every Thursday, that's when the new pages are added!

The Classic Guitar Method: Now in one volume, much of what the novice classical guitarist will need to know to lead him or her to the recital stage. From proper instrument care and maintenance to the necessary technical skills, musical mind-set, and the standard repertoire—all exposed and explored with enough detail and insight that the student will wish to keep this book handy years to come as a ready reference source.



With the aid of a good teacher, the student will rapidly progress through The Classic Guitar Method attaining technical proficiency and musical eloquence.

This method stems from the need to incorporate a number of schools into a single cohesive curriculum. Years of honing a logical approach to the guitar and the creation of music culminate in this volume. As a self-proclaimed Disciple of Valdés-Blain , much of that famed teacher's focus can be found in Mr. Pellegrin's method.

  LOW END  By Harry George Pellegrin.  The first in the Gary Morrissey series of mysteries.  Dealing with modern subject matter in the classic style of the 1940's Mystery Noire masters--think Raymond Chandler in New York in the 1980's...  LOW END is the story of a drug addict who is murdered after he believes he has found evidence of a major government conspiracy.  Is it only drug-induced paranoia?  Might be, except his paranoia could be considered justified: he was murdered, after all.  Friend Gary Morrissey takes it upon himself to find out just what happened and lands himself in the crosshairs.

Hear selections from my new album, Reflecting Pools. A departure for me, it is a keyboard album. The music is a series of tone poems written for relaxation and meditation. Reflecting pools is the perfect companion for a rainy afternoon or a winter evening. Actually, it is a great stress-reliever at work!
