Tips
Matteo Carcassi (Florence, Italy, 1792 - Paris, France, 
January 16, 1853), was a famous Italian guitarist and 
composer. Carcassi wrote a method for guitar that remains 

valuable, relevant and interesting. His most famous 
works are collected in his 25 Studies, op.60. This song 
Etude in A or Study in A is the 3rd song of his famous 25 

studies. 


Technique
I would say Etude in A is a left hand (chord) predominant 
song. Once you get the basic plucking pattern (right hand) 
pim-aim-aim-pim, you will spend most of the time 
familiarizing with the chords (left hand). Make sure the 
song flows and vary the volume throughout. In general, 
you have license to play with level of volume in all songs 

with a uniform plucking pattern.

Tip
The right hand plucking is straight forward. Watch for Bar 
2 chord and chord transition from Bar20-21.
