If you have doubts about using my edition, please remember that my changes do not change the music as it sounds. Post adeliita Jacek A.

I’ll take the Pavanne in E to a new thread so it will be clearer Thanks to all. The second mistake I had heard was playing the portamentos—which are notated in the original as an unslurred slide to a tarreta note—by striking the end note twice instead of once. They may not even refer to dynamic levels.

In the 19th century, the term was confused with the appoggiatura. Forum guitare classique – Forum chitarra classica – Foro guitarra clasica – Free sheet music for classical guitar – Delcamp. Still, today the classical guitar world cannot bring itself to use the term slide and much confusion abounds regarding the difference between glissandosportamentosand finger shifts. This is more than just a theory; it becomes quite clear when you read the music as originally notated and compare it to later editions which mistakenly edit the original notation.

A change I made that could impact musical interpretation is the addition of explicit dynamic levels to the hairpins. By ttarrega 20th century, however, the notion of avoiding repeats had become widespread.

Classical Guitar

Although I have preserved the original D. Both the Antich y Tena and Anido editions clearly use D. Therefore, I assume—perhaps incorrectly—the repeats were not meant to be observed. 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. I used the Antich y Tena edition of Adelita as the source for my edition.


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. There is an open Lagrima thread explaining the background.

Composers as varied as Haydn, Beethoven, Adelira, 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 Adelia of Musical NotationRoberto Poli, Does anyone know the story behind Tarrega’s beautiful little Marzuka “Adelita”.

Adelita is only a name of lady. These are not guide finger indications. The first was to play the acciaccatura notes before the second voice bass note and accenting the note that showed the accent instead of accenting the beat.

The hairpins in tatrega Antich y 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. In the end, I abandoned my changes and decided to eliminate all acciaccaturas and trailing grace notes.

All posts 1 day 7 days 2 weeks 1 month 3 months 6 months 1 year Sort by: Since the slides are not slurred, you strike the second note taarrega arrival. You’re supposed to play the acciaccatura as part of the same beat as the second tardega bass note, not ahead of it.

After much tarrrega, I decided to make significant notational changes that do not change the meaning of the music, but make it easier for the contemporary player to understand. Seems out of character for him but you never know. The first hairpin appears redundant to the un poco crescendo instruction. It is not clear, however, that it qualifies as a mazurka.

A slurred slide means you slide from the first note to the second and do not strike the second note, allowing it to sound as a result of the slide. I had heard at least two mistakes made with respect to playing the piece. In contemporary guitar notation—at least in the 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.


Just resonates for me. Modern editions write D. Despite that possibility, I included them assuming they represented changes in dynamic intensity and added explicit intensity levels that were missing at the ends of the hairpins.

Adelita – Mazurka” for Classical Guitar by Francisco Tarrega.

Therefore, I recommend not trying to learn the piece until you’ve developed both comfort with barres and sufficient strength and flexibility in the lttle finger to play clear hammer-ons and pull-offs. Therefore, you may choose to play the piece faster than the 60 bpm I’ve listed, opting for a faster 80—90 in the Andante range. The Pavanne in E Major. This section is read-only.

The performer should have some flexibility as to how to play the ornament. After much thought, I decided that twrrega accents on the notes after the acciaccaturas were too confusing for players without much notational experience. Notation Changes and Commentary.

It’s not marked as a transcription on the music I have so I have to think this is an original piece. An unslurred slide means you slide from the first note to the second and strike the second note upon arriving. I prefer the acciaccatura notation because no one can or should play a 64th note exactly. Instead of acciaccaturas forming reverse mordents, I unambiguosly represent the notes with their actual values so there is no question that they are played on the same beat as the second voice bass note.

I believe these changes resulted in more compact, unambiguous, and easy to read music.
