Tarrega, Francisco - Andantino in A major

Post by Nick Cutroneo » Tue Dec 08, 2015 1:24 pm

Hi all -- I've recorded another short Tarrega piece. This time it's his Andantino in A major. In searching for pieces to help students with higher position playing, I've found that Tarrega has some great short pieces that can be used as etudes for these purposes. This Andantino is the perfect example. I use this piece as one of the first beginning pieces in higher position playing. Using some pattern based playing, students can start to see moveable chord shapes higher on the neck, which then helps for the single note passages in the piece.

For those who are looking to make their way across the neck of the guitar, this is a great piece to look into.

Great job - I play this little piece as a warm-up almost every time I pick up a guitar :)

The first time I heard it was the version from a Giulio Tampalini CD of Tarrega music.

He doesn't quite play it as written, though and it seems I've adopted his changes - it's nice to hear it as written!

Tateharmann -- thanks for watching. I haven't heard of Tampalini's CD, but I'll definitely be checking it out! It'd be interesting hearing the differences.

Thanks for watching!

Cef - thanks for watching! Yes it is a great little piece. In doing this project, I've stumbled on some great short pieces for students. I can't wait to start having students work on these pieces.
