Waltz in E minor was composed by guitarist Ferdinando Carulli. This is guitar study number 21 from École de guitare, also known as Opus 241.
This is a nice classical piece recommended for beginner to intermediate level guitarists looking to develop their fingerpicking technique.
Music symbols used in the piece
- Fine – End (in Italian). Sometimes written as Fin (in French). For this piece, you end on the measure that indicates “Fine” the second time around after going through all the measures.
- D.C. al fine – Go back to the beginning of the piece until the end (fine).
