Watch the Level 5: Beginner Classical online guitar lesson by Andrew Leonard from Take 5: Beginner Classical

During the performance of Francisco Tárrega's "Lágrima", I play each section one time. There are two sections, played A-B-A.

When you perform "Lágrima", the proper form is to play with repeats: A-A-B-B-A. This is explained in the breakdown.

As you listen and watch, notice we're using all of the fretboard with many left hand fingers moving in many opposite directions. Notice the use of legato: Look at how I'm holding down the bass notes while playing the melody and listen for the legato sound.

Notice the difference in mood between the A and B sections. The A section is in E major and the B section is in E minor.

Also, focus on the right hand classical guitar technique. You will see both rest strokes and free strokes being used to bring out the melody and soften the accompaniment.

Enjoy! You have the opportunity to play one of the masterpieces written for classical guitar.
