In this guitar lesson I teach you this Allegro in A minor by Mauro Giuliani. This is a great right hand study for the right hand is perfect for the guitarist who has been playing for a while but is new to fingerstyle/ classical guitar.
Mauro Giuliani was an Italian virtuoso guitarist/composer who lived from 1781 to 1829. He composed a bunch of works for the guitar, everything from simple etudes all the way up to complex works for the professional guitarist.
This study in E minor by Giuliani has always been on of my favorite etudes. It has a great right hand pattern with a somewhat, easyish, left hand pattern. For the most part, the right hand pattern stays the same throughout the piece. The nice thing about it is that it’s a great study for the intermediate level student as well as for the more advanced student. The intermediate player can take a more moderate tempo while the more advanced player can just let it fly!
Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) was one of the leading guitar virtuosos of his time. The time period puts him in late Classical/early Romantic period which means that Mozart was near the end of his life while Beethoven would have been a contemporary of Giuliani’s.
