Hi Eliseo - apologies, your English is not clear to some of us.

No, the Roch "Method" referenced by both Rob and VasquezBob consists of three
Eliseo wrote:VazquezBob be careful. First you say the word "Volume" and then you say "Method".
It is indeed a method book - written by Pascual Roch
, based on the teaching
of Tárrega hence the sub-title "School of Tárrega".
Eliseo wrote:Tárrega did not write any method for guitar. But he left "Studies of complete technique" ...
Tárrega's surviving studies in no way comprise a "complete technique" - the title of Scheit's book refers to the fact that the studies gathered together were as complete a collection as could be gathered at the time of publication. Since that time several more studies have been discovered - many presented in the Soneto "Obras Completas" volumes 1 & 2.
The Bèrben collection of four volumes that you mention is to be considered a poor edition these days, containing no provenance or attribution details, unacknowledged alterations to Tárrega's fingerings and generally poor editing choices. However, though they may be out of date, you may be mistaken in suggesting that they are legally
available to download.
