[MUSIC]
I had a request from Jason L.
Fr, from the site to do a tune that's
played usually on the classical guitar.
So I only have one book of classical
guitar music here in the house so
I chose this one.
It's a piece by Gaspar Sanz who was a
Spanish Renaissance composer who composed
for the guitar.
The piece is called Espanoletas.
And it's a beautiful, absolutely beautiful
tune.
And so I will play it for you now.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Okay.
There's a finger fold.
The last, second to last measure should
be.
[MUSIC]
So that last.
[SOUND] The first chord of that second to
last measure.
[SOUND] Is that.
[MUSIC]
Okay so I'll play it slowly now.
[MUSIC]
It's somewhat self explanatory.
It goes by.
The fingerings go by relatively slowly
but.
Here we go.
[MUSIC]
So I've got the index and
pinky up here on the fifth fret of the
fourth and seventh fret of the first.
[MUSIC]
And I grab the fifth string.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
Here's a stretch.
[MUSIC]
Open to second.
Index on the first fret of the third
string.
[MUSIC]
Pinkie on the fourth fret of the fourth.
[MUSIC]
[SOUND]
And to D seventh, but
with the pinky on the fourth fret of the
four string.
One two three one two.
[MUSIC]
Here's a grab.
Borrow the first three strings of the
second fret for an A chord.
[SOUND] And.
[SOUND] And then fret the fifth.
Fret of the fourth string with your pinky.
[MUSIC]
Sorry.
[MUSIC]
Now you go into double time where there's
more eighth notes.
[MUSIC]
So here I'm going zero two four five.
[MUSIC]
Index ring pinky.
One finger per fret.
[MUSIC]
Sorry.
Here five and seven.
Index and pinky.
[MUSIC]
And then index ring pinky ring.
[MUSIC]
Grab
the pinky over to the fifth fret of the
first string.
Pinching along with the third string.
[MUSIC]
A little melodic lick.
[MUSIC]
Nice rich C chord.
[MUSIC]
Little melodic lick.
Sorry.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC] Sorry.
[MUSIC]
And that's index and pinky two and five.
Down one fret.
[MUSIC]
[MUSIC]
So one more time.
Espanoletas.
[MUSIC]
