Tips
----

Exercise- ami plucking-sustain bass

This song right hand pattern (ami) is identical to "Romance de Espana's"
which I previously covered. Tarrega is one of my favorite. He is consider
the father of Mordern Guitar. What i like about him is the emotions his
songs carry. Estudio or Study in Em is a lyrical and sentimental ballad.


Technique
Using (ami) play with undulating volume to generate feeling. If you know
"Romance de Espana" already, focus on the left hand fingering. There's
one tough bit in the second part of the song which i have marked with a
n asterisk.

Tip
Once you master the (ami) patterns, learning "Romance de Espana" will be easy.

Bar[12]

* This is a 5 fret diagonal stretch (High E to low E).
Make sure you sustain G throughout the A,G,B sequence
on the treble string.
