The word, Malagueña, means a few different things. It refers to folk music from Venezuela, it also refers to a type of traditional flamenco music from Andalusian. I first came across this melody when I heard somebody perform Francisco Tarrega’s arrangement of the song.
I have made two arrangements of the Malaguena: an easy version and a hard version. This arrangement is the harder version. This arrangement contains harmonics, rasgueados, and tremolo. It’s a great melody and I have always loved playing it.
Here is a full guitar lesson on an easy arrangement I made of the famous song, Malaguena. It’s a passionate song that I always imagine two passionate lovers dancing to it when I play it.
I have always loved this song and decided to finally make an arrangement of it. The arrangement is in two parts. There is an opening section, which is then repeated at the end. There is also a slower, song-like middle section.
