Estudio in E Minor by Francisco Tárrega (1852–1909) for Classical Guitar. Free sheet music edition or premium TAB edition. Early-Mid Intermediate (Grade 3-4). Here’s a free sheet music edition of one of Francisco Tárrega’s (1852–1909) 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.

Lesson: Estudio in E Minor by Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909). YouTube Video Lesson Link. A nice melody with a full arpeggio accompaniment. This piece explores and develops barre technique and is a good preparation for Lagrima by Tarrega which will be the next piece. I give a lesson on playing the melody on its own and three ways to practice the barre. It is a good idea to approach tricky barre passages in a variety of ways: Pause and Prepare, Shape Recognition, and Destination Points.
