Grade 2 Lesson: Allegretto by Carcassi

This lesson comes from my new book Classical Guitar Repertoire Lessons Grade 2 – Seven pieces at the grade two level with dedicated lessons preparing you for each piece. Check it out at Werner Guitar Editions.

Allegretto – From Méthode complète pour Guitare, Op.59 by Matteo Carcassi (1792-1853). Similar to the last piece by Carcassi, this Classical era piece offers a number of right hand patterns to practice and this time switches from E minor to E Major halfway through.
