WHAT WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

What Wondrous Love Is This performed by Robert Lunn

What Wondrous Love Is This has a beautiful melody that works well on the guitar. This is an old hymn that was first published back in 1811.

An interesting nugget about this piece is that it is in the Dorian mode. The dorian mode can be built by first writing out a natural minor scale (ex. A, B, C, D, E, F, G) and then raising the 6th note. So a dorian scale on A would go A, B, C, D, E, F-sharp, G, A. This particular melody is in D dorian so the scale goes: D, E, F, G, A, B, C, D.

LA CATEDRAL – Andante Religioso – Agustín Barrios – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

La Catedral: Second Movement performed by Robert Lunn

La Catedral is a great piece composed by Agustin Barrios Mangore. The last two movements were composed earlier in his life and then he added the first movement (the one in this teaching video) later in life. He reworked this piece throughout his life and you will find multiple versions of it. For more information about La Catedral I would recommend checking out: https://www.savarese.org/music/LaCatedral.html

Of the three movements, this one is my personal favorite and the reason I started learning the piece many moons ago.

Agustin Barrios was a guitar composer and composed a lot of really good pieces. He was born in Paraguay and was praised for his concerts as well as recordings. If you don’t know this composer I would highly recommend checking out his other pieces.

AMAZING GRACE – Easy Arrangement- Full Tutorial with TABs – Fingerstyle Guitar

Amazing Grace Performed by Robert Lunn

Amazing Grace is one of my favorite melodies of all-time. The words were written in 1772 by John Newton. It was common back then for words to be used with a variety of different melodies and it wasn’t until around 1847 that we first find a publication joining the words with the melody commonly used today called, New Britain.

This arrangement in this guitar lesson comes from my first volume of easy arrangements. As the title implies, I tried to make this as easy as possible to play while still keeping the integrity of the original tune.

SAKURA – Easy Arrangement – Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar

Sakura performed by Robert Lunn

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.

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

Lagrima performed by Robert Lunn

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.
