I play classical guitar and usually, I like to play music from movies, video-games or popular songs. However, there are very few classical guitar arrangements for this type of guitar, while there are lots for fingerstyle guitar. I like them a lot, but I also love classical guitar and I would like to play them in classical guitar.
However, I know zero music theory. I used to play the piano and there I learned basic music theory that I don't remember because I never used. For example, I don't know how to identify the chords in a song. Not even when I see the piano sheet.
How can I start? I read this article, and this seems like a really nice first method to start this adventure.
My plan is the following:
First: I need to find the piano arrangment (something like this link).
Second: Break the song in melody and harmony
Third: Transpose the melody so it can be played in the first strings.
Fourth: Do the same with the chords.
Is this a nice plan to start with? I don't know how to transpose pieces and also don't know how to identify the harmony in a song.
Also, I plan to keep learning (don't really know what it is) music theory. My ultimate goal is to be able to use the sheet music as a guide for the notes, considering their relative distance to get the melody, using music theory to get a nice harmonization of the piece, and using the techniques that I like when playing the classical guitar.
