  • Haydn's Tempo di Menuet from Sonata in D major XVI:33 (trans. Tarrega)

    I found this fairly guitar-friendly transcription of some music by Joseph Haydn. The piano version is quite brisk with more ornamentation. The B section is particularly fun to play.

    • Derek Thank you, Derek!

    • Eric Phillips another interesting transcription... I think by the end of the challenge you'll have all Tarrega's transcription done 😂... good work Eric!

    • Blaise Laflamme Thanks, but he has so many more that are very difficult to play. I'd love to do some of his Chopin, but I find it too difficult.

    • Eric Phillips I don't know enough of Tarrega's other works, I should put more time on reading that 19th century, I kind of mostly switched from 18th century to 20th century 😬
