Hello from Australia! And help identifying a tune

Post by marble-bar » Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:40 am

I'm a 40 year old man in Sydney Australia. I'm teaching my son to play classical guitar. I remember the following simple learner's piece from my childhood days. I forget the second part but what I really want to know is: Who is the composer? I'd love the sheet music.

Here is a very amateur rendition of me playing it :-) Any idenification ideas welcome! Glad I found this forum!

Hi Andrew!

The piece you are looking for is Carcassi, op. 60, no. 7.
You can find the score here (scroll down the page):
http://www.guitareclassiquedelcamp.com/ ... cassi.html

And, if played fast, it's not a beginner's piece, in fact a tremolo practice study.

Gohar Vardanyan has a lesson on this study on the Strings by Mail website. It is really good.

Hi Andrew,

Welcome aboard. My son is also learning Carcassi Op 60 No 7 (although in the Schott edition that we work from it's actually no 9 - go figure). It's a great piece although it's more intermediate than beginner. To give you some indication it's listed on the Grade 5 AMEB syllabus.

Carcassi Op 60 has a couple of other early intermediate pieces that are worth looking at (1, 2, 4 & 6 are listed at grade 4 level for example). Whilst you can download a pdf for free, I think there's enough material in Op60 to warrant buying a print copy and having it on the music stand permanently.

Good luck with teaching your son.
