Opus 60 No7 in Am by Matteo Carcassi

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.


This song is fun and a good practise for both hands. Opus 60 No 7 is the 7th study of Carcassi’s 25. To me. this song is easier than Opus 60 No 1 (see my previous article), so this would be a good entry point if you want to learn Carcassi-one of the pioneer of the classical guitar itself.

There are 2 main patterns (pami) and (pimi). When learning this song, it helps to read ahead to get better prepared to interchange between these 2 patterns. There’s only 1 Barre Chord in Bar [22]. Play Part 2 twice. The hardest part of the song to me is at Bar [16] and Bar [18] just after the E arpeggio, there is a serie of (mimimi) that needs to be delivered actually and in tempo. (pami) at a faster speed becomes tremolo.
