Dear All,
There are easier arrangements for this lovely piece, but in my opinion this one could be the best transcription for guitar by Francisco Tarrega.
Happy Guitar

Hey Homayoonsaleh,

Thank you very much for this post. :casque: :bravo: :okok:

That was beautiful. You make it sound so easy when it's not. Thanks.

Hi Homayoun,

I didn't know you have posted "gondola veneciana" here! In any case let me express my admiration for a wonderful job you did here! I love that piece! Bravo!



Hi roshanak,
I tried to send you email but it doesn't work I get a message back that it is not accepted. Just to tell you that I love your MP3 too!

Another excelllent post! Thanks!
I, in general, find harmonics hard to play, do you have any tips on how to get them sounding clear?
Thanks again

Hi kwinto,

Harmonics are best produced when they are in the middle of the string! That means that once you place a finger on a fret, it shortens the string so if the harmonic (specially the artificial ones) is plucked let's say at a 5th fret, you should move your hand towards the bridge as many frets...What I mean is the more towards the bridge you pluck and the more that aproaches the half of the string from the point the harmonic is plucked, the clearer it will sound...I hope I haven't said anything wrong! In any case, it works for me!

Happy guitar!

Thank you Bob for your accurate explanation. There is a law of physics behind your explanation, but I am not an expert on the science.!

Happy Guitar

Playing closer to the bridge has helped loads, thanks!

Felix Mendelssohn: Gondola Veneciana - Tarrega

Post by Russell » Tue Oct 25, 2005 12:25 am

Hi Homayoun, I was wondering about this score. In the collection of Tarrega here on the forum I cannot find this title, is it called another name, or translation? Or, is it a separate score, and if it is, can I have a copy?

Many thanks,

Russ :)


Post by homayoonsaleh » Tue Oct 25, 2005 9:28 am

Hi dear Russel,
it is composed by Felix Mendelssohn and my version is transcribed by Tarrega and the fingering is by Savio. that is why it is not found among Tarrega's compositions.
anyway, i would be gald to send you a copy. please just send me your e-mail address. you may find mine in my profile.
Happy Guitar
