Martin Bickerton Plays Caprice No. 7 by Legnani

English guitarist Martin Bickerton Plays Caprice No. 7 by Luigi Legnani (1790–1877). This comes via his YouTube Channel. Nice zippy playing by Bickerton for this fun Caprice. There’s something I like about this unedited DIY video. Legnani’s 36 Caprices op. 20 for the guitar, which cover all the major and minor keys, were most likely inspired by Paganini’s 24 Caprices for the violin.

Sheet Music: I recommend either the classic Chanterelle Edition or this more recent edition: 36 Caprices Op. 20 by Legnani (Matarazzo).
