Tarrega's Pepita Advice Please

Post by Malcolm » Sat Dec 02, 2017 12:43 am

I intend studying this piece and I'm looking for any hints from members who have mastered it.

I'm particularly interested in an appropriate tempo. I have the Chanterelle Collected Guitar Works: The Early Spanish Editions but this doesn't give any indication, and a version downloaded from the public domain which is marked 80 bpm.

I am assuming that no matter what tempo is used it should be brisk, bright, lively and consistent, that is, no legato or rubato.

When I was ten, I thought my parents knew everything. When I became twenty, I was convinced they knew nothing. Then, at thirty, I realized I was right when I was ten.

I can't give a metronome marking but
Polka's are normally played at a moderate tempo.
There's a number of renditions on u tube
you can listen to.

Hope it helps.
