Here’s a free edition of Nocturne (Notturno) No. 1, Op. 4 by Johann Kaspar Mertz. Mertz was a Hungarian guitarist and composer who wrote many concert works for guitar as well as some easier collections including Op. 4. This is a great work and, to my ears, very influenced by Schubert and Romantic lieder. It's a more mature work that nicely transitions intermediate players into more advanced works. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it. Here's the YouTube Lesson Link if you want to watch it there.
