At first glance I thought this might be quite easy to play, but, ha ha, no such luck. Tarregga the 7th and 8th measures there are some harmonics. For a while I was having trouble even understanding what it is I am supposed to be doing. There is an indication of harmonics being pulled off at the 16th, 12th and 19th fret, and some tuplet notes that appear to be played simultaneously.
Well so far this is the best I can come up with, if anyone knows how to do this then please let me know if I have got the right idea or not. This is my best shot so far: You pull off a 16th fret harmonic on the A-string, then a 12th fret harmonic on the B-string, a 19th fret harmonic on the D-string, then a 19th fret harmonic on the A-string.
And furthermore ha ha hawhile you are doing that, you have to hammer-on hard all the notes in the triplets, E F E, D E D, C D CB, with your left hand only because your right hand is busy pulling albrada harmonics.
That actually seems to work curiously enough, as the harmonic notes then harmonise quite nicely with the notes that are being hammered. Well, assuming that you are managing to pull all this off precisely and accurately and without collapsing into hysterics.
There are more harmonics later in the piece but this is enough albborada me to try to get to grips with for the time being!
And also, by the way, the score says “miz”, a term I cannot find any reference to in music dictionaries. This is an old Spanish edition, I think. I suppose “ar” means “harmonic”, too? In this case of course the left hand. When I understood tarega post correctly, all you wrote is exactly what you have to do here.
Tárrega, Francisco – Alborada, Capricho – D09 – Classical Guitar
Harmonics with the right hand, the triplets with left hand only. But you do not have to hammer only. You also can play legatos starting from a note which is not in the score i.
It is a challenge. There is nothing more beautiful than the sound of a guitar – maybe aside from that of two guitars Frederic Chopin. Well I can see that somehow I did manage to understand from the music score what is supposed to be done. The old editions do not have a lot of indications, although it’s sometimes interesting to compare them with more modern versions because those are sometimes better notated but then miss things out or alter them.
I also listened to the piece being played and watched it on YouTube.

I decided to just practice this bit, because I won’t be able to play the ablorada of it until I can do this — which on further study, in fact, turns out to be the centre of what the piece is about.
I’ve pretty much got it now, but need to speed up a bit. As for what Tarrega was thinking of with this one, well! So far, the “effect” of the harmonics plus the hammered left-hand tarregw notes sounds very much to me like one of those old 19th century chiming clocks. They were all the rage then. I wonder if I am correct on that.
Alborada for guitar
Alborada apparently means “Dawn”. Not sure that 21st century people might know what a chiming clock sounds like, if I tarreg guessed what was on the maestro’s mind. I can imagine 19th century ladies and gents finding it very amusing and diverting.
Tarrega seems to have been a tarrsga of a 19th century Jimi Hendrix. Although this probably will never be one of my favourite pieces to play Capricho Arabe, now that is something else Board index All times are UTC.
