Easy nice-sounding classical song?

Post by nor_bak » Sat Apr 04, 2009 10:35 pm

Hi I'm just looking for a nice song, easy to learn/play, I'm just starting and I have some basic notions of music notation and technic.
I heard Leyenda from Albeniz it sounded good enouth to me and liked it. Any other sugestion? I've enough learning partitures and so on, I think, I look for something rewarding that keeps motivation high.

Thanks a lot.

There are several songs from Carulli for beginners... Take a look ... Are easy to find and sound very good ...

I see from you profile you are from Spain. Is 'Spanish Romance' actually from Spain?
A guitar school from Iceland has public domain music, you may like the Romance, from this link http://www.eythorsson.com/ It is quite easy to start with, then moves on to some barres - but even if you can't play all of it now, it is a lovely tune. There are also a few versions (including one with extral tremalo) on youtube, so you can get an idea of optimum speed.

I learned my tremalo as a variaton of romance. I already knew the piece so I could concentrate on the right hand. I do a pimami 6 stroke. Not common but it works well for me. Long practice with the metrodone. Romance to the classical guitarist is like 'stairway to heaven' was to the older rock and rollers lol. My only formal training was with 3.5 years with Vicente Gomez who made the song famous. Adding a tremalo variation to the old classic is a nice touch.

You might consider El Testament D'Amilia by Miguel Llobet. It's very beautiful and does not require virtuoso technique. Lots of good recordings on YouTube and the sheet music is available for download.

Check out Giuliani "Le Papillon" op 50, no. 1. I always liked that one and its really easy.

There's a great book called "Pieces for classical guitar by peter greenwood". Very easy pieces, but good arrangements of all the greats. Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, etc., lots of great composers. Starts with the baroque and then moves forward. I've been using it a a classical "fake book" for years.
Can get it at Amazon.

I might be weird, but I really like the studies and exercises in the Carcassi method. Other methods have similarly interesting pieces (Noad, Sagreras, etc.). I really believe that if you just picked up the guitar and started playing some of those tunes, anyone would think they were nice.
