Even though he only wrote less than a hundred pieces for the guitar, the short compositions are enjoyed by many guitarists. Within the music world, many consider Tarrega to be an important founding figure for the classical guitar genre. Other works by Tarrega include how most famous work, RECUERDOS DE LA ALHAMBRA, and LAGRIMA, a popular guitar tab for beginners.

    The most fun song I learned to play was my firs to sound like a real song and that was the all time favorite of Rock Around the Clock. The most memorable song I have learned is Carried to the table and is still one that touches my heart every time I play it and hear it. I would be inspiring to learn to play the music of Mr Tarrega . The download and the head set would be a wonderfully helpful tool. I am currently taking college level guitar lessons and am looking forward to improving and being able to share this music with others.

  2. I’ve actually forgotten the song title, because it was over 30 years ago.
    It wasn’t the first song I learnt at school guitar lessons, but it was th efirst that was a bit more modern and upbeat. But mainly it had an (open) F chord in it, and at the time, holding down 2 strings with 1 finger, was like magic.
    Eventuall I mastered it without fret buzz and my general fear reduced. Until I got to (open) B of course. LOL.
    I think the song was either where have all the flowers gone (may not be the song title but a line) or Oob la Dee (ditto).
    So not my first challenge, but my best challenge solved.
    It’s great when you accomplish something that isn’t instantly easy.
    I suspect the song giveaway above, will fall in that category for a while as it is “challenging” :-)

    It’s nice to see you giving away a Spanish tune for guitar but couldn’t you have started with something a bit easier? This tune is rock hard.

    What song did I have most fun learning to play? I really like Debussy’s Clair de Lune as it isn’t too difficult but still sounds great.

    What tune did I have least fun learning to play? Beethoveen’s Moonlight Sonata. It sounds good but it’s a real struggle.

        Hi Monica,

        Thanks for your reply. I do check the free music every month. My favourites were from last year – Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker meddley and In the Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg. Those classical pieces sound great on acoustic guitar.

        As a starter piece for Spanish guitar, I think that Malaguena is a good piece. I see that you don’t have a tabbed out version of this on musicnotes yet.

    I just started play guitar and have found this site. It has helped me learn new notes and how to play them. I look forward to a long relationship with this site.
