Moderato by Ferdinando Carulli (1770-1841). This is one of those pieces from the classical guitar repertoire that truly is better on guitar than other instruments. The piece is essentially just arpeggios but for some reason they sound good on guitar despite the lack of more musical content and students tend to like it. I’ve included it in the book for its exciting pace, simplicity of technique, and etude quality.
