Home > Solo instrument > Andante in C - Guitar Solo with TAB

This piece is a timeless classic and firm favourite for beginners although it is often printed without the middle section in the relative minor! The main problem for beginners will be that the semiquavers get the player all revved up just for a seemingly slow middle section…. perhaps that is why modern methods have left it out.

Carulli started as a cellist, then took up guitar to become a great performer and teacher and develop his own teaching method which he published in 1810.

The playing style should absolutely be tirando (free stroke) in the right hand. Experiment with contrasting tone and dynamics too. Suggested right hand fingerings are given in the score and guitar notation part. Not much use was made of the ring finger in this style - note the thumb use on all tail down notes too!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
