This lesson teaches the first of Carulli’s 24 preludes Op 114. It’s taught using a steel string, not a nylon string guitar, so isn’t intended for classical purists. Rather it’s aimed at general fingerstyle players who enjoy having a few classical pieces in their repertoire. It also makes a great fingerstyle exercise or warm-up piece.
