This is another one from the 50 Great Classical Guitar Solos book, Waltz by Ferdinando Carulli.

I've searched for this on youtube, and well, I can't seem to find anything in C (I think this is in C), and when I do it's completely different! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, I had a harder time with this than I should have I think.

It's Carulli's Opus 121 Number 1 - I played it for my Grade 2. Starts in C and the middle bit's in Am.

Nicely done Joe.

Thanks Alan!

So I'm confused on the grades....how do you know what grade etc, like I can play Tarletons Resurrection, but some of the easier pieces give me the same difficulty as far as reading goes...are the levels technical applications?

Also, what's an Opus? LOL.

Opus - published work. So, my third book of published music would be Opus 3. If there were 10 tunes in there, the first one would be Opus 3, number 1

Determining the Grade of a particular piece is a bit of a black art. I don't always get it, either. Bach's E minor Bourree is Grade 5 at London College of Music, but Grade 6 at Trinity College, for example, and they're supposed to have all got together to agree Grade specifications.

121 Books??? :shock: :shock: Wow

Thanks for the explanation Alan, I appreciate it!

As a side note, after transcribing the tab from the book I got for the past two pieces, I was going through my Classical Guitar Method Book from Hal Leonard, and they were both in there LOL....doh!!

Yeah, remember though that in those days the poor impoverished guitar teacher would write his own material for his students rather than buy expensive stuff from a publisher. Among those 121 works is a huge amount of straightforward lesson material which might only be a couple of lines long, as well as the big musical items.

Oh okay I see what you are saying, when I think books, I think full fledged books.

I'm actually downloading the Guitar Moment book from that classicalguitarschool.net site, seems to be about my level to practice sight reading.

Thanks again!

Joe, you are my hero... Are you able to play that just in a couple of days? I remember you said you want to play that piece before my trip. Now, when I get back, you are playing it like if you were playing it for years!

Awesome :D

Yeah this piece only has a couple positions in it, and they are all pretty easy to get to, based off C, Am, etc.

But thanks for watching and commenting!! I've learned a bit more, but I figured I wouldn't spam this place with video LOL, so I'll just keep those in reserve for a while, and play them when I go to Borders Books. I'm starting to pick up the easier sheet music really easily now.

I'm really enjoying a Study in G Major by Dionisio Aguado, has a real good feel and even though it's from the Classical Era has more of a Renaissance feel to it (at least to my ear), that might be one of the next things I post, but I want to really get it down and almost memorize it before I do.

Dionisio Aguado... I never heard his name. I learn a lot with your posts. Try this link: http://classicguitare.com/viewtopic.php?t=813

It has a method by Dionisio Aguado published in the XIX century! It is in Spanish and French but it is so cool! And there are some scores too.
