PLAY­ING TIPS

Guitar Techniques - - ALONSO MUDARRA -

At bar 53 the piece changes gear and the tempo slows slightly as we go into a syn­co­pated sec­tion that is sur­pris­ingly groovy for its era. It can feel quite fid­dly for the pick­ing hand so I have in­di­cated a so­lu­tion for you to try. From bar 60 there is more move­ment in the bassline – th­ese bass notes need to be given their full value for the piece to sound ef­fec­tive, so do pay at­ten­tion to them and don’t cut them off in their prime!
