New to the forum and just perusing sections and found this tab... thanks for posting! What a great piece.

Had a question for the more experienced and classically trained among us ..

The fingerpicking pattern recommended in the score is p-i-p-m .. I am working on this as an exercise in technique, but I'm not sure why this is the pattern and not just p-i-p-i or p-m-p-m?

Anyone know?

Hi Michael, and welcome!

I know that Segovia fingered it p-i-p-m (or was it p-m-p-i). I think it's because it balances the right hand, and is more graceful than just clawing away at it with just the thumb and one finger. Or, maybe it's so the one finger doesn't get overworked?

Anyway, I've always liked the alternating fingering. :)

thanks .. i'm definitely working on the alternating fingering... sometimes do great too, then realize mid song I'm seamlessly alternating fingers, at which point I usually crash and burn .. need to build up that muscle memory! :)

Howdy and thanks for the music. I've been trying to learn this piece for a bout 2 months now, it's been a very difficult adventure for me. Maybe too much. But in my search for sheet music, I'm finding alot of differences in people's translation. When I watch the YouTube video of Segovia. And Anna vidovic. And I watch the hands. It doesn't match the sheet music and some times the chords are totally different. I'm on 3rd version(yours) of this song. When I listen to the piano version. I can see that some people chose to play the lower notes and some play the higher notes for a section. I know there is really no right or wrong way. Should I just mix n match versions so I can play it like Segovia did? Is there different versions of this song. Do you think there is any downside of trying to learn song that's too hard for me?

Thanks for this tab and sheet music combined! Particularly appreciate the nice alternative to the tough bar in measures 37-40...though I'm hoping to work my way up to the higher position eventually...
