Here’s a free sheet music edition of one of Francisco Tárrega’s (1852–1909) easier etudes or studies (estudios). With a beautiful melody this is a great work for classical guitarists around the intermediate level. This is generally easy except for some barrés and some upper position playing. Make sure to shape the melody that is embedded into the arpeggios. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it. Check out more music on the sheet music page or lesson archive.  Join the Email Newsletter to get updates on free sheet music and lessons or consider donating to the site to keep the free sheet music coming.

  1. Hello Bradford,
    I enjoy your weekly newsletter. In your last issue you provided a lesson on Estudio in E Minor by Tarrega which is about my level. In the free PDF score for this piece you indicated signs like BII5 and BV3 followed by a long line. They might be repeat signs but I cannot figure out what they are telling me. Could you explain, please. Herman

    • They indicate barré (placing the 1st finger over multiple fretted strings). So BII5 = Barre the 3rd fret over 5 strings. BV3 = Barre the 5th fret over 3 strings. As demonstrated in the lesson video. Hope you enjoy!

    Bradford You are selfless when you helping students to learn. People like me who can’t afford to pay but have a fire to learn, you are blessing. Hope some day I will be able to donate. Thank you.
