Prelude 11 in D Major by Francisco Tarrega (Guitar Tab)

Prelude 11 in D Major– Francisco Tarrega(1852-1909)

Francisco Tarrega
Tárrega is considered to have laid the foundations for 20th century classical guitar and for increasing interest in the guitar as a recital instrument. Tárrega preferred small intimate performances over the concert stage. Some believe this was because he played without the nails needed for volume. Others say this was related to his childhood trauma.

4 right hand “pull” chords- pima, pim, pma and pia. This is not strumming but pulling the 3 or 4 strings at the same time. Play these chords as Triplets on the downbeat (123-123). There are 8 bars only which must be repeated twice. Play slow, land the chords on the downbeat and suspend all bass. Watch out for barre chord pull off in Bar [2] and barre chord hammer on Bar [3].
