Here’s a free sheet music edition of one of Francisco Tárrega’s (1852–1909) most famous works. It has become one of his most popular works due to it rich and dark sound as well as strong melodic lines. I’ve made a free copy to attract guitarists to the site and a tablature (tab) version for those who need it. This work is often played by professionals but it’s not so hard that students and intermediate players can’t get through it. Enjoy! You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.
