Prelude in 15 E by Francisco Tarrega (Guitar Tab)

Prelude in 15 E- Francisco Tarrega (1852-1902)

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.

This prelude comes with a lot of Barre Chords. If you got small hands or just starting classical guitar, look elsewhere. For those who are ready to have a go the good news is that there are only 8 bars to be repeated twice. Measure [7] has a double notes slide with hammer on-a nice effect if delivered properly. The notes of the prelude are played in triplet time in a 4/4 time signature. Standard Tuning. Lento play slow. Left hand fingering (chords) needs more attention compared to the right. Since this is a slow prelude, it is important to let the notes ring out and suspend them as indicated.
