Aaron's Great Picking Study (Carcassi's Study No. 1)

The studies of the Italian guitarist Matteo Carcassi (1792 – 1853) are a stable of classical guitarists. Study Op. 60, No. 1 is an excellent scale workout and consists almost entirely of single notes.

As Aaron shows here, the same piece makes a great picking study when played with a plectrum.

Aaron makes just one cheeky little alteration near the end. Can you spot it?
