Sakura is a popular folk song found in Japan. The translation means “Cherry Blossoms.” I’ve always loved this melody. The first time I heard it performed on the classical guitar was by John Williams who was playing an arrangement by Yuquijiro Yocoh. That is a very virtuosic arrangement (and beautiful arrangement). For this arrangement I wanted to arrange it for the late-beginner, early intermediate level student.
I hope you enjoy this teaching video. You can see more teaching videos by visiting my guitar school found at my website.
