Lesson notes

Continuing to explore the steel-string approach to romantic classics, we have my take on Lagrima. Francisco Tarrega wrote Lagrima (Teardrop) while in England and feeling homesick, missing his beloved Spain.

The piece is similar to many others of his, consisting of two eight-measure sections in contrasting keys, E Major then E Minor, arranged in the AABBA form.

The lesson presents many fingering options and contrasts a few published versions. It also includes an example of what not to do musically, or when shooting video lessons, a bit of comic relief.
