This is a joyous dance that makes me happy whenever I hear it. In fact, it’s not too far off to say that music like this got me hooked on the classical guitar. It’s also a wonderful entry level piece for students who want to tackle a concert level work. It falls under the hands in an uncomplicated way and is immediately likeable to any audience. Canarios is one of the “can’t miss” pieces of our repertoire.
