Francisco Tarrega is one of my favorite composers for the guitar. He was a Spanish composer who lived from 1852-1909. He composed many wonderful pieces for guitar from beginner level pieces although to pieces for the most skilled virtuosos.
Estudio in e minor is a great little study composed by the Spanish composer, Francisco Tárrega. For the first half of the piece, the right hand pattern is the same as the pattern found in Spanish Romance. For the second half of the piece it is played with tremolo. Tremolo can be a tough technique to learn. The nice thing about this piece is that the tremolo is all on the first string. I find that a lot of people have difficulty with the tremolo when it is on the second string.
Francisco Tarrega is my favorite guitar composer. What I mean by that is he is my favorite composer who composed for the guitar. Well…one of them. It’s a tie for me between Tarrega and Villa-Lobos.
I hope you enjoy this teaching video. You can find more videos like this at my guitar school found at my website.
Estudio in E minor by Tarrega is a great little etude for the guitar. The right hand pattern for the first half is the same as the pattern used in Spanish Romance. The second half of the piece uses the tremolo technique. You can learn the entire piece at my guitar school on my website.
