Watch the Week 4: Lagrima & Francisco Tarrega online guitar lesson by Andrew Leonard from Classical Guitar For The Blues, Jazz & Rock Player
Francisco Tarrega's piece "Lagrima" is a beautiful and very well known piece. We will learn to play measures 1-4 of the A section. There are several new topics introduced during this lesson: RH pinching technique and interpretation or "phrasing" a melody. Also included as a bonus are measures 5-8, the final measures of the A section. Francisco Tarrega was a great innovator in composition, technique and development of the modern guitar. His compositions often took advantage of many of the things that make a guitar sound great and unique: tremolo, harmonics, glissandos (sliding while playing a melody note) and much more.
