ESTUDIO IN A MINOR – Dionisio Aguado – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Estudio in A Minor performed by Robert Lunn

Estudio (study) in A minor by Dionisio Aguado is a great little study perfect for the guitarist who has played for a while but is new to fingerstyle guitar. The left hand isn’t too difficult and the right hand repeats a lot.

Aguado was a Spanish classical guitarist and composer who lived from 1784-1849. He was friends with, and even lived with for a short time, the great Spanish guitarist, Fernando Sor. I heard once (I don’t know if it is true) that many of Aguado’s concert works were destroyed and all that we have left are a few concert works and a bunch of studies.

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW – Wizard of Oz – Full Tutorial with TABS – Fingerstyle Guitar

Somewhere Over the Rainbow performed by Robert Lunn

This song, composed by Harold Arlen, contains a beautiful melody and is a good example of the AABA song form. Overall, I tried to make this arrangement as easy as possible so that the performer can really focus on making the melody sing.

EL TESTAMENT D’ AMELIA – Full Teaching Video with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

El testament d’Amelia performed by Robert Lunn

El testament d’Amèlia is a beautiful catalan folk song. This particular arrangement was made by Miguel Llobet and was part of his Canciones Populares Cantalanas.

I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it. It has a beautiful and haunting melody and I love that he uses artificial harmonics in the arrangement as well. Many of the most popular classical guitarists have recorded this arrangement including Andres Segovia, John Williams, and Julian Bream.

The Godfather performed by Robert Lunn

Performance 0:00

Teaching Video 1:33

I have always loved this theme. Such a beautiful piece of music composed by Nino Rota. It originally was a song called, “Speak Softly, Love.” It was a theme that was used in the movie, The Godfather. 

I remember seeing Guns n’ Roses in concert many years ago and seeing (and hearing) Slash (one of my favorite guitar players) play this. Since seeing that concert I have played this on my electric guitar. A few years ago I decided to make this arrangement for classical guitar.

In this guitar lesson I teach you the arrangement that I made. The arrangement isn’t too hard and can be played by an intermediate level guitarist. I hope you enjoy this lesson. You can see more video lessons like this at my guitar school found at my website.

FUNERAL MARCH (Main Theme) – Chopin – Easy Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Funeral March (Main Theme) performed by Robert Lunn

In this guitar lesson I teach you the opening theme of Frederic Chopin’s famous Funeral March (Marche Funebre). This melody comes from the third movement of Piano Sonata No.2 in B-flat Minor, Op. 35.

I’ve always loved the music of Chopin. I love his Nocturnes, Etudes, and especially his Ballad’s. As guitarists, about the closest we have to Chopin is Tarrega, who I have always thought, but don’t have any proof, was influenced by Chopin.

A few years ago I made a group of easy arrangements for my students. This is one of those. I just arranged the opening theme from this movement. I hope you enjoy it. You can see more videos like this at my guitar school found at my website.

TANGO – Francisco Tarrega – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Tango performed by Robert Lunn

In this guitar lesson I am teaching the Tango by Francisco Tárrega. Tárrega is one of my favorite guitar composers (along with Villa-Lobos) and I have learned many of his songs over the years but for some reason just learned it a few months ago for the first time. Here is the reason, and it is super lazy of me, I hate having to tune two strings down a step! Haha. I finally got over that and learned the song. It’s a great song.

Tarrega was a versatile composer who would often compose in different styles of music. For example some of his music had a very strong Spanish influence, which of course makes sense because he was from Spain. He also composed Mazurka’s (Polish Dance) as well as this Tango. The Tango is a dance that originated in Argentina and Uruguay. I have always felt that Tarrega was as close as us guitarists get to having our own Chopin. A very Romantic minded composer who wrote great music.

STUDY IN E MINOR – Op. 48, No. 5 – Mauro Giuliani – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Study in E Minor by Giuliani performed by Robert Lunn

This study in E minor by Giuliani has always been on of my favorite etudes. It has a great right hand pattern with a somewhat, easyish, left hand pattern. For the most part, the right hand pattern stays the same throughout the piece. The nice thing about it is that it’s a great study for the intermediate level student as well as for the more advanced student. The intermediate player can take a more moderate tempo while the more advanced player can just let it fly!

Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) was one of the leading guitar virtuosos of his time. The time period puts him in late Classical/early Romantic period which means that Mozart was near the end of his life while Beethoven would have been a contemporary of Giuliani’s.
