Matteo Carcassi's Complete Method for the Guitar, op. 59, is as relevant today as when it was first published in 1836, at the height of the 'golden age' of the guitar. Carcassi's method is well-planned to introduce easier keys and exercises first, building upon each technique learned as the studies become more challenging, all while being presented in many short, delightful pieces for students and teachers alike to hone their skills and guitar technique. The method presents, in progressive order of difficulty, tuneful exercises in scales, cadences, and arpeggios in the easier keys, gradually introducing techniques such as slurs, slides, trills, and mordents, and progresses to studies in the higher positions and on to the more difficult major and minor keys. The pieces that accompany each exercise can be enjoyed in their own right as delightful examples of 19th century guitar repertoire.
/>Carcassi's most famous publication is his Twenty-five Melodious and Progressive Studies for the Guitar, op. 60. Published shortly after his Method, each of the '25 studies' exploits a particular guitar technique (scalar passages, arpeggios, slurs, barrés, etc.) in a beautifully written piece of music that exemplifies the height of guitar virtuosity of the period. These pieces have become required reading for all classical guitarists wishing to improve and refine their technique through the enjoyable and melodic studies of one of the greatest composers and instructors in the history of classical guitar.
