Beautiful, Christian, did not know this composition of Tárrega. Happy New Year to you as well, hoping 2017 will bring you all the best.

Um forte abraço,

Jorge

Thank you Jorge for your reply and comment. Tarrega has other lesser known composition as for example "preludio sobre um tema de mendelsohn". I used to play it but it needs some practice to keep it in the fingers.

I searched in my books and found the Tango Maria, Christian, it's numbered as SEM 13 in Volumen IV - 31 PIEZAS ORIGINALES PARA GUITARRA (3 inéditas), a SONETO (Madrid) publication edited by Melchior Rodríguez. It says there that you have to tune the 5th string to G and the 6th to D. I'm now digging into Sor's Opus 60, otherwise I would give it a try, it is so nice.

As for the other composition you mentioned, Preludio sobre un fragmento de Mendelssohn, I also found it, it's SEM 14 in Volumen III - 35 PRELUDIOS ORIGINALES PARA GUITARRA (4 inéditos), in the SONETO (Madrid) publication indicated above. It seems more complex than Tango Maria.

I assume, naturally, that the guitar is one of yours. Very beautiful and clear sound. Any particular model? Spruce, cedar, 650 mm, double top (nomex), raised fingerboard, what?

The prelude is a good exercice also. There is a version of it on youtube but he plays it way too fast for my taste.

The guitar is one of mine of course - it is a 2016 red cedar nomex sandwich top with raised fingerboard and bolted on neck. This is a very interessting instrument full sounding and responsive with a lot of sustain and balance etc. and not really expensive either.......
