SUGGESTED Tárrega Piece Selections - Click Here for the Music!
Hey everyone! What are your favorite pieces from Tárrega?
I'd love for you to explore Tárregas pieces on your own, but here's a little guidance through the vast works of Tárrega!
Check out these suggested tracks I came up with:
Easy: Lágrima, Etude in E Minor, Adelita, Marieta
Medium: Preludes, Endecha-Oremus, Tango, Transcriptions (Pathètique, Moonlight), Vals in Re, Sueno
Advanced: Gran Vals, Caprichio Arabe, La Mariposa, Recuerdos de la Alhambra
My personal favorites: Prelude no.5, Lágrima, Endecha-Oremus, Caprichio Arabe, Barcarola
What do you think, which ones did you like best?
Good morning Martin. I saw this challenge only last week, so am very late to the discussion - I hope that's ok?
I have enjoyed the terrific performances submitted by other members, but I have a question if you don't mind - how long can someone be learning guitar before finding pieces like Lagrima and Adelita "easy"?
I was learning guitar for almost 2 years when the pandemic stopped my classes (at Grade 4), and I have struggled to commit to improvement on my own this past year.
This Tãrrega challenge has caught my eye as a means to learning progress, but at my level, I find very little that is easy with these pieces. In fact, if it were not for Thomas Voliteau's excellent presentation on Tonebase on how to approach learning Lágrima, I doubt I would even have tried.
Is this to be expected for beginner / novice musicians, or should I be playing the tambourine, or tic-tac-toe instead!
In all seriousness though, i know everyone may eventually find the limits of their ability. Do you think that difficulty with pieces such as Lágrima in the early years of learning to play, gives clues that my limits might be closer than I had hoped?
Many thanks for your views on this as a teacher.
