Fernando Carulli

Hey, “advanced” players—don’t just skip ahead. This tablature-less Carulli piece is a good test of your reading chops. Even intermediate guitarists should be able to play through this simple waltz at first glance, in time, and without a single mistake.

(Tip for beginners: In the indicated key of G [one sharp], the lines’ notes [from low to high] are E, G, B, D, F#, and the spaces’ notes are F#, A, C, E. The Italian instruction D.C. al Fine means return to the head [da capo] and play to the end [fine].)
