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.

    • Hi Virginia, no, you do not have to match the speed. I highly recommend you just bring the tempo to the level that you can play well. Sometimes, you might want to stick with a piece a bit longer or play a lot more grade 2 pieces before moving on to grade 3 in order to increase your tempos but you certainly do not want to force it.
