This collection of classic guitar studies is intended for the intermediate guitarist. As a whole, these etudes emulate the content of Carcassi's famed 25 Etudes, yet in a more contemporary harmonic and rhythmic idiom. These pieces are also distinguished in that they are not only valuable as left and right-hand technical exercises- but also as valid, pleasurable concert repertoire. The first ten etudes 11-20 focus on the use of the a finger in combination with i and m. Etudes 4,7,11,13,15, and 17 also concentrate on left-hand slurs. The final five etudes were composed as - and intended to be performed- as a set with each piece dedicated to a particular Latin American composer.
