Allegro Moderato, Study No. 19, Op. 60 by Matteo Carcassi
Despite being No. 19 in the Op. 60 collection, this etude is not as difficult as it first appears. The focus is on arpeggios, right hand balance, and upper voice melodic phrasing. Once you have the chord shapes in the left hand it’s pretty much up to the right hand. Remember the hierarchy of balance: melody is loud, bass is medium loud, and the accompaniment (repeated sixteenth notes) are soft. These are generalizations but that is the basic idea.
