Carcassi Prelude in D minor

This short Prelude in D minor by Matteo Carcassi was originally published in his Complete Method for the Guitar, Opus 59.  This is a 12 bar arpeggio study using typical chords of the key of D minor and played entirely in the first position. Carcassi wrote, "Arpeggios as used on the guitar produce an agreeable effect, and, as studies, give strength and agility to the fingers of the right hand."
