Lagrima by Tarrega is one of my favorite pieces and it is one of the first pieces I performed in public for the first time. I started playing electric guitar in high school. My guitar heroes were Eddie Van Halen and Slash (they still are). I went to Hope College and took a classical guitar class with Larry Malfroid and loved it. I loved it so much that I decided to become a music major. The first student recital I played in I played Lagrima, Adelita (also by Tarrega) and Spanish Romance. It’s a piece I have played regularly since then. I have never grown tired of it.
Francisco Tarrega is one of my favorite guitar composers (the other being Villa-Lobos). His pieces work well on the guitar and sound so beautiful.
I hope you enjoy this guitar lesson. You can find more lessons like this at my guitar school found on my website.
