Canario by Carlo Calvi

Canario by Carlo Calvi (c.1610-1670) from Intavolatura di chitarra e chitarriglia (1646). Lesson and PDF sheet music for classical guitar. This comes from my Easy Classical Guitar Volume 2 which includes 15 authentic pieces from the Renaissance to Romantic era. All works from guitar and lute sources. Includes both a notation-only edition and tab edition, left hand fingering, some right hand fingering, online video lessons for each piece. The level is easy-intermediate or post-method book to Grade 3.

Composers include: Anonymous Lute Works, Negri, Calvi, Kellner, Sor, Carulli, Molino, Mertz. An authentic collection from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras.

This is a popular little work found in many books. Some fingering and ornamentation is discussed but the main thing is work on the phrasing of the melody while maintaining the pulse. Calvi was an Italian guitarist and editor. Intavolatura di chitarra, e chitarriglia has instruction on tuning, reading tablature, and a nice collection of works for guitar.  Here’s the Youtube Lesson Link in case you want to watch it there.
