Study 24. The last one.
Today, I have finished with recording all 25 studies op.60 by Carcassi. I don't put the playlist here, as it is forbidden by the rules, but you can find it on my youtube channel.
Let me say a few words about this opus.
All the voices are written as for a singer. Try to sing everything. Soprano. Bass.
The technique: it is obvious, especially after arpeggio studies, to state that Carcassi often used a repeated stroke with one finger. Very often with a finger, at the soprano. Often, the bass lines are to be played by a thumb.
It opens possibilities in leading of the voices. It can ensure the freedom of voices. It can get closer to a piano voice leading.
But this limits the technique. So, because of that, it rarely opens to tempos over 132. Maybe Study No.7 is an exception, maybe some others. But generally, it shows that Carcassi never aimed to be the fastest guitar virtuoso of his time. And that is also, why his op.60 is considered a set of pre-intermediate guitar etudes.
But, one should definitely play them all, as it enriches the technique greatly. And, it could solve a lot of problems you will later have with 12 studies by Villa-Lobos.
I hope you'll enjoy it.
