About the Lessons

1. Introduction Mateo Carcassi was a well-known Italian classical guitarist, recognized both as a concert performer and an excellent teacher. Steve explains how he has taken this excercise from the guitar method book he used when he was first learning to play guitar. The tune is played in triplets, with a bass-middle-melody fingerstyle flow.
2. Demo First Steve plays through the tune.
3. Mapping Chords The first chord, the D chord, starts in a reverse slant position. One by one, Steve goes through all the chords in the exercise.
4. Slowly Steve explains how to play a "triplet," three notes played in the space of one beat. This becomes more interesting when you add in the fact that he is doing a hammer-on at the same time.
5. Uptempo Steve plays through the entire tune up to tempo.
6. Conclusion Steve encourages us to move slowly and steadily - keeping the notes even with the same duration of time each.
