[Bar 12-15] The fa­mous melody over the pedal A note bass should be played strictly in time, al­ter­nat­ing thumb and fin­gers free stroke in the pick­ing hand.

[Bar 16-20] Here we have a re­peated phrase de­scend­ing in arpeg­gios then bro­ken chords – keep it as tidy as pos­si­ble and at full tempo. The A ma­jor chord at bar 18 re­quires a fret­ting stretch and the de­scend­ing chord se­quence ap­pears again an oc­tave higher in bar 19 af­ter a flour­ish­ing scale pas­sage.
