All classical guitarists play it. It is quite simple in composition and easy to learn.
The reason it is so adored is that you can transfer your technique skills to this piece as you advance. It will be a piece you play your whole life.
Not to mention it forces you to learn some of the nastier barrechords I've ever seen...
I think I recall reading here somewhere that this piece was graded 5 (or was it 7?) just because of that. Not that a piece grade has every stopped me from trying to learn it..
But Kent is right; it's a very flexible piece that if you learn in the very beginning (I did, first classical piece every learned, before I even knew that I was playing with triando, etc
) you will constantly be able to use it to test every new thing you learn in some way or another. Plus it sounds pretty cool and the girls love it
Armed with Book, Forum, and Guitar, I will bare my teeth and face the world! Music is a way of thinking, an art. There is nothing more demanding, and nothing more rewarding.
