Dionisio Aguado's New Guitar Method is the standard English translation of Aguado’s celebrated method for guitar, which for more than a century was the most famous of all the methods for the instrument. Newly translated from the Spanish and published by Tecla in 1981, it is now reprinted with only minor changes. (We still include the list of those Tecla supporters who helped with the publication by subscribing to it back in 1981.)  It includes a detailed bibliographical study by Brian Jeffery of the many different editions of Aguado’s method.
