Nevertheless, we cannot disregard the student's matura- tion process, a process which could be either positive or negative and which has a direct bearing on a developing personality, Without a doubt, the very future of the artist will also be a consequence of his or her acquired experience.
How important it is, then, that those elements which are considered constructive be well-defined a0 as to avoid those which are negative or harmful. The unfolding of the history of the guitar presents us with a wide panorama and an evolution that is logical and progressive, This history is full of virtues and defects, both of which can serve as very important wruides: the virtues have laid out a sure path, one which we should follow with determination; the defects, when examined, should arrest our attention in order to discover how not to err in the sume way ayain.
This book tries to answer the complex problems related to instru- menial technique and to the reereative process of making music. Both converging towards a single point, these concepts form so intimate and subtle a bond that it is not possible to know where one ends and the other begins. Before this unity could become a reality, however, a learning period is required so that our knowledge might evolve into something alive and musical.
How then are we to obtain the proper orientation that ean guide us towards acquir. The reconsidering and reworking of the fundamental shortcomings of the traditional guitar school are absolutely essential.
This book is a testimony of an experionce lived over the years. My pupils from different parts of the world many of them are already fine guitarists have helped me with their questions—questions similar to those I asked myself during my first developing stage.
To them, my thanks, for with them Ihave learned; and faithful to the pupil in me and the teacher in me, I shall go on learning. Further encounters in France in and , and in New York and Madrid in , led us finally to an interna- tional seminar in Montevideo where we stayed on in order to expand our knowledge of the new school.
Through a regular and more intimate con- tact with the Maestro, our desire to become fully aware of what his crea- tion for the guitar world represents was fulfilled, Putting the theoretical notions into practice by examining and testing the concepts, strengthened our conviction that this school has a firm foundation, that it is sound and true.
Both its development and our as- similation of it are supported by a dual reality, a conceptual one estab- lished on theoretical grounds, and an empirical one obtainable through daily inquiry, There is an urgent need to make this theory known to the guitar world, for it opens a new path that has in addition to a tangible truth, a reality based on strict logic, both with which a unified structure has been constructed.
We feel that this thoroughly rational approach to the art of guitar playing is not only important but that it represents an indispens- able stopping stone for the guitarist of today. When Carlevaro expressed a strong desire that we personally take charge of a translation of his book into English, we embarked on the work with great enthusiasm. Our sincerest thanks go to the Maestro for having made our task possible. Pedro Arnt. Aethen Lee. Anonymous okuMftYV.
