Tips

A short prelude of 32 bars. One of the tougher prelude supposed to
be allegro but take it slow at first.
To me, Barrios is top dog in level of difficulty. Barrios's notes
covers the guitar neck with lots of sliding in between chord
positioning. Preludio in Em has 3 different Right hand patterns.


Technique
Bar[1] to [7] mirror image pattern (m i p p i m)
Bar[13] another mirror image pattern (a m i p i m a)
Bar[16] and [18] Barred Chord hammer ons and pull offs on
the Bass strings. Use pinky and middle finger.
Bar[21] (p i m) repeat till end

Start slow. The notes are mostly uniform. The hardest part
of this song for me are Bar[16] and [18]: The Chord hammer
ons and pull offs on the Bass strings. This took some time
to pull off-no pun intended-and definitely gave my pinky
a good workout. Bar[12] double pinky pluck is also tough.
As always, my tab fingerings are made for me or what i
think is the best fingering. Feel free to alter the
fingering on the text file for yourself. I made the
tab in txt in the first place to encourage ease of
editing.
