In classical guitar, the Romantic performance tradition dating back to the 1980s presented a technical approach that was suitable for its own musical understanding. The new understanding that began to be dominant after 1980 has modified guitar technique with changes in multi-directional perspectives. The reflection of this development in performance and guitar education is not considered systematically sufficient. The perception of differences as polarization creates problems in education. The reflection on classical guitar of the understanding of “historical awareness performance” that is prominent in classical music and the advantages of gradually developing information society have led to different and high-level technical guitar skills. The realization of this process through external effects rather than internal dynamics has created methodological problems. This study comparatively analyzes Emilio Pujol’s method and Vladimir Bobri’s book, The Segovia Technique, from the Romantic era with Hubert Kappel and Scott Tennant methods from the Modern era.
