Aguado wrote many studies and methods for the guitar, beginning in 1820 with his Estudios, then in 1826 he published his Escuela which included many of the same pieces, and finally towards the end of his life in 1843 he published his Nuevo Método para Guitarra which again includes many of those same pieces and which became one of the most famous of all guitar methods. This present Aguado’s New Guitar Method is an English translation of that 1843 text.
