Opus 60 No 3 Study in A by Matteo Carcassi

Study in A by Matteo Carcassi (1792-1853)
Grade 4– Late Intermediate
Exercise (pim-aim-aim-pim)

Matteo Carcassi Matteo Carcassi was a famous Italian guitarist and composer. Carcassi began with the piano, but learned guitar when still a child. He quickly gained a reputation as a virtuoso concert guitarist. Carcassi wrote a method for guitar (op. 59) that remains valuable, relevant and interesting, blending technical skills and brilliant romantic music.

I would say Etude in A is a left hand (chord) predominant song. Once you get the basic plucking pattern (right hand) pim-aim-aim-pim, you will spend most of the time familiarizing with the chords (left hand). Make sure the song flows and vary the volume throughout. In general, you have license to play with level of volume in all songs with a uniform plucking pattern. The right hand plucking is straight forward. Watch for Bar 2 chord and chord transition from Bar20-21.
