This a particularly beautiful duet by Carulli and a little preview of the Notation and Sight Reading course for Level 2. Each part here is at mm. 74 so it will certainly be a sight reading challenge! Both parts are provided so you can swap over when you like.

The piece is in the time signature of 12/8 which has four main beats which are divided into three eighth notes. So, you can still count it in with four beats ( a lot easier than counting to twelve!) Don’t let it confound you with such a high number, essentially it is like two 6/8 measures stuck together.

Once you have played it a few times, experiment with using fingerings higher up the fretboard. There are a lot of possibilities and opportunities to make unique expressive phrases.
