A play-through and few words of discussion about this very important and popular study by Carcassi.
There is one thing I missed out of the lesson part and that is the problem of the 'pf' dynamic found at the beginning of the piece. In this context it has to mean 'poco' forte' and the difficulty is knowing whether this should mean louder or softer than 'mf' - which means moderately loud, normally considered one down from forte. I think I always assumed pf to mean the same as mp as there are no examples of mp in Carcassi that I can find. However most evidence seems to point to pf being louder than mf.
The main thing is not to let the question get in the way of playing the piece!
