Our next lesson will focus on a guitar masterpiece by Matteo Carcassi. A native of Florence, Italy, Carcassi studied piano as a child, but learned guitar shortly after. He became known as a superb concert guitarist. He wrote 77 opuses and one of them is the song, Andantino. Jeffrey worked on the ukulele version of this song with complete structure and proper rhythmic values notated in the tab.
Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam recently made a recording of the song using his ukulele. His version has a really cool vibe, so we decided to share it with you. Jeff made the arrangement as simple as possible so it would be easier for beginners to learn the song. It has some really nice chords with single notes and chord enhancement.
