I am partially blind ( classical guitar technique )

Hello my dear friends !

As well as the stones knows , yes, I am partially blind.

I was not lucky when I was ten years old.
simply this: bad luck.

So now I'm a real Pirates des Caraibes   : )

                                              Magli plays Caravels Dream

Now, what has this to do with the classical guitar technique ?
Nothing. I assure you nothing.

So please do not continue to write me emails asking how my partial blindness
 may have helped the development of my musical memory or guitar technique !

Musical memory and technique is developed by constant study.
You memorize and learn by heart a musical beat
then two, then one page, then three pages ...
Rome was not built in a day!

Music talent is important and
 I thank God every day of the talent that He has given to me.

But talent dies without the practice.
Be patient but strict with yourself.

                                                 MAYBE composed and played by Magli :


Sacrifice , yes, this is important… and passion too.

Do not give to live the wonderful experience of life,
 but organize your time with discipline,
 and one day you will be guitarists!

When I was 14 I gave up television up to 22 years just because 
the study at the conservatory took hours and concentration. 
Nine years without television.

There was not Internet ...

 Now I always play in front of the television, but now
 I am an experienced great guitarist
and let me joke
I could play with my eyes closed. : )

You do not have an hour or half an hour a day to play classical guitar
You'll never be a great guitarist because the classical guitar requires training
Segovia scales, arpeggios and
the Daniele Magli compositions :

All free pdf scores and tabs about my music at this link of my guitar website :

Daniele Magli PDF and guitar TABS

As a beginner can get started?

With the methods by Carulli and Sagreras,

With my compositions as Twilight ( here the link )

Twilight - Guitar Tabs

With the Mauro Giuliani 120 arpeggios,

With my compositions Twilight or Angels or Soul Wind.

The setting of your hands is important, much more important 
than being a pirate like me!

Please visit my website for right hand and left hand techniques...

So remember: your heart is Important but nobody
 will not feels that you play your guitar with your heart 
if you have not trained your hands well.

Ciao visit my free guitar website for more about left hand , right hand and tremolo :

and good work !

Werner Herzog the Classical Guitar and Daniele Magli

Update 2019: I'm always a big fan of the wonderful Herzog films. I am now a composer guitarist and I don't have much time to follow the events on the internet but I am always very grateful to youtube for giving me the opportunity to let me know as a musician...

Under my video "Eclipse" I find this comment from a kind youtube friend :

"I am so very confused to why your videos don't have many views....
I play classical guitar myself, no where near as good as you but my theory on why you don't have as many views as Luccorelli and G.A.Clark, is probably because you don't compose nearly as much.... Or at least I'm guessing. But you have the potential, and I think you should do so, and get your music out there!"

I would like to thank this friend who cares so kind of why I do not do a lot of views on youtube like other classical guitarists.

and i think about my favorite film director of all the times : Werner Herzog.

once one of his films was much criticized by the public that whistled and he stood up and said: "you're all wrong !"

I think that art can not always be popular and if it is too much popular... it is not art.

but perhaps these guitarists are better than me, I do not know, I've never heard their names before

as Werner Herzog said : That man is a head taller than me. That may change.

but maybe too tall for me are these guitarists :

Andres Segovia ( so many great videos at my YouTube page )

and John Williams

they are great artist of classical guitar…
 real classical guitarist with a real classical guitar technique !

I  have only more then a million views to my videos and thousands of subscribers to my page...
but they are not few because they are experts in classical guitar and not confuse it with the folk guitar.

So... if you subscribe to my youtube channel

Do not expect from me executions of pieces of music that I do not believe, just to increase my views. I play a piece just if i love it.

Do not expect from me songs arranged by someone other than Takemitsu or Angelo Gilardino.
Arranged from great musicians and great composers...
if Angelo Gilardino will arrange a song by The Beatles maybe I will execute this piece.
Just because a great composer can make a great arrangement.

Do not expect from me a tremolo for every famous piece. For example
Spanish Romance
it is not a tremolo. 
I'll never play Jeux Interdits - Spanish Romance as a tremolo because it is bad music.

Do not expect from me that I play with a big echo effect. I hate echo effects if it is too much  because it hides errors and it is a bad sound for a classical guitarist.

expect me to just Daniele Magli and subscibe to 

Daniele Magli YouTube page

Thank you very much !
