Puccini, Giacomo - Che gelida manina - Video

Here's my new arrangement, Puccini's "Che gelida manina" from La bohème. A great aria, and always my favorite, I think it works very well on the guitar. Perhaps it is because this aria is not as grandiose as many, but rather tender. I've tried to make the arrangement as idiomatic on the guitar as possible.

There's a free PDF download available on my website. That makes three opera arrangements now. :casque:
