That is, except for measure 14, where the Antich y Tena and Anido editions show the forte between the hairpins, but on the bottom of the staff while the hairpins are above the staff. I believe these changes resulted in more compact, unambiguous, and easy to read music.

Even if you’ve mastered barres, upon reaching measures 11 and 12, you may reach an impasse.

Adelita – Mazurka” for Classical Guitar by Francisco Tarrega.

Composers as varied as Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, and Schubert used hairpins as agogic and voicing instructions instead of as dynamic intensity indicators, for which the written instructions crescendo and decrescendo as well as abbreviated dynamic markings were used instead for more information see The Secret Life of Musical NotationRoberto Poli, I prefer the acciaccatura notation because no one can or should play a 64th note exactly.

His music always shows complete command of the instrument. Although he did not invent the metronome, he manufactured and sold what became the most popular model. As a side note, I believe notated guide finger lines to be superfluous; it suffices to see that two consecutive notes use the same finger number.

Since the slides are not slurred, you strike the second note on arrival. It is not clear, however, that it qualifies as a mazurka. If you have doubts about using my edition, please remember that my changes do not change the music as it sounds. This is contrasted with a section in a major key that is joyful sounding.

Nevertheless, I opted for unambiguous clarity over interpretive freedom.

Tárrega – Adelita sheet music for Guitar

At the txrrega of his education, the meaning of hairpins in the music he studied was different than today. After much thought, I decided that the accents on the notes after the acciaccaturas were too confusing for players without much notational experience.

In contemporary guitar notation—at least in adeliga non-classical world—there should be no need for a trailing grace note when the grace note’s pitch is the same as that of the following note.

In addition, there are usually three “voices” or “lines of music”. The hairpins in the Antich adeliat Tena edition of Adelita —faithfully preserved in the Anido edition, but butchered in modern editions—that follow the contours of the notes instead of being placed horizontally above or below the staff—and also lacking accompanying dynamic intensity markings—may represent agogic considerations and not dynamic intensity changes.

After much debate, I decided to tardega significant notational changes that do not change the meaning of the music, but make it easier for the contemporary player to understand.

Guitar Lessons: ‘Adelita’ Tarrega’s Composition Style

adeliita Both notations produce the same sounding music, but mine should be easier to interpret correctly. You’re supposed to play the acciaccatura as part of the same beat as the second voice bass note, not ahead of it. Modern editions write D. A change I made that could impact musical interpretation is the addition of explicit dynamic levels to the hairpins. A slide is denoted by a line connecting the two noteheads and does produce an audible adeliha effect.


Therefore, I assume—perhaps incorrectly—the repeats were not meant to be observed. One section is in a minor addlita, sounds very bittersweet and sadly dramatic.

Both the Antich y Tena and Anido editions clearly use D. If they were slurred, you would not strike the second note. I also replaced the trailing grace note portamento representations with a modern-day unslurred slide. ByI believe the ahistorical convention of not playing repeats on a Da Capo became entrenched.

Playing the slurs fluidly requires a well-developed little finger. I had heard at least two mistakes made with respect to playing the piece.

The first hairpin appears redundant to the un poco crescendo instruction. I’ve never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! I find it quite easy so far! In the end, I abandoned my changes and decided to eliminate all acciaccaturas and trailing grace notes.

It’s easier for inexperienced players to grasp this when there’s one acciaccatura note, but it becomes fuzzy for them when there are two notes involved which can be confused for two sixteenth notes. The second mistake I had heard was playing the portamentos—which are notated in the original as an unslurred slide to a grace note—by striking the end note twice instead of once.

Finally, there is a tarregaa to the original key, be it minor or major. At first, the primary change I made was to extend the slurs from the acciaccaturas [ 2 ] to the note following the acciaccatura forming a so-called reverse or inverted mordent.
