This is the first compilation of guitar music for a right hand technique that includes the little finger. The 12 complete compositions include original pieces by Charles Postlewate (Homage to Villa-Lobos, Variations on a Theme of Prokofiev and Improvisation on Green Dolphin Street), transcriptions of piano pieces by Claude Debussy (La puerta del vino and Dr. Gradus ad Parnassum), arrangements of Peruvian popular songs (Jose Maria and Virgins of the Sun) and new editions of standard repertoire pieces - two studies by Fernando Sor and the beautiful tremolo study by Agustin Barrios, An Alm for the Love of God. Postlewate also includes excerpts of two other standard repertoire pieces by Federico Moreno Torroba (Sonatina) and Heitor Villa-Lobos (Prelude #2) - which are published elsewhere under copyright restrictions - to show the advantage of using the little finger. These pieces demonstrate new right hand techniques for the classical guitar that use the little finger in the playing of scales, chords, arpeggios, tremolos and harmonics. They also show the advantage of using the little finger for speed, accuracy, strength and balance. All of these compositions are recorded by Postlewate on the accompanying 60 minute CD, HOMAGE TO VILLA-LOBOS - MB 98711CD. This book is a companion to MB 98710 - RIGHT HAND STUDIES FOR FIVE FINGERS using Chords, Arpeggios, Tremolos and Harmonics, also by Charles Postlewate.

Charles Postlewate began studying the guitar at age 12 with Lloyd Hazelbaker but received his first college education as a cooperative engineering student for Buick Motor Division at General Motors Institute (now Kettering University) in Flint, Michigan. During his final years of engineering studies at GMI, he studied jazz with Bob Brown and played electric guitar in jazz bands in the Flint and Detroit areas. He graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree in 1964 and continued to work for Buick for two more years to save up enough money to study music at Wayne State University, in Detroit, Michigan. He was a theory/composition major who switched to classical guitar performance and received the first Bachelor and Master of Music degrees (1969 and 1973) in guitar performance in the school’s history, studying with Joseph Fava. His further studies on classical guitar include masterclass performances for Michael Lorimer and Oscar Ghiglia as well as occasional private lessons with Lorimer. As part of his graduate studies at WSU, Postlewate developed and taught classes in ensemble, literature, pedagogy, harmony and improvisation for the guitar. He has performed solo, chamber music, and concertos with orchestra in concerts across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru and the Caribbean. He has recorded three albums and three CDs, to critical acclaim, for Prism Studios and his latest CD, Homage to Villa-Lobos, is the result of a 14 year research project to incorporate the little finger into the right hand technique of the classical guitar
