Cuban composer Leo Brouwer’s Etude No. 2 & 3 from Estudios Sencillos. I play the study and then give a lesson on musical and guitar related ideas. I would place this at the early-intermediate level but beginners and advanced players can still get a lot from working on it. These are both great etudes for dynamics. Etude no. 2 is a great study in right hand balance of multi-voiced textures. Etude 3 works on some rapid movements and shapes.
