The Alta Vista Babelfish translator says Alborada means”dawn,” but a Peruvian co-worker of mine said Alborada means “forest. I suppose “ar” means “harmonic”, too?

It put me in a really good mood! I started with it 2 or 3 weeks ago and wanted to post it before I take a break from this piece. I’ve pretty much got it now, but need to speed up a bit.

Tárrega – Alborada (Capricho) sheet music for Guitar –

You pull off a 16th fret harmonic on the A-string, then a 12th fret harmonic on the B-string, a 19th fret harmonic on the D-string, then a 19th fret harmonic on the A-string. In this case of course the left hand.

As for what Tarrega was thinking of with this one, well! You also can play legatos starting from a note which is not in the score i. I can imagine 19th century ladies and gents finding it very amusing and diverting.

Alborada (Tárrega, Francisco)

There is an indication of harmonics being pulled off at the 16th, 12th and 19th fret, and some tuplet notes that appear to be played simultaneously. That actually seems to work curiously enough, as the harmonic notes then harmonise quite nicely with the notes that are being hammered. I decided to just practice this bit, because I won’t be able to play the rest of it until I can do this — which on further study, in fact, turns out to be the tarrdga of what the piece is about.


But you do not have to hammer only.

At least its written that way mano izq in the score from http: They were all the rage then. The finger movements are just unusual and it takes a lot of time to get used to it. So far, aoborada “effect” of the harmonics plus the hammered left-hand only notes sounds very much to me like one of those old 19th century chiming clocks.

And furthermore ha ha hawhile you are doing that, you have to hammer-on hard all the notes in the triplets, E F E, D E D, C D QlboradaB, with your left hand only because your right hand is busy pulling off harmonics.

Well I can see that somehow I did manage to understand from the music score what is supposed to be done. Harmonics with the right hand, the triplets with left hand only.

And also, by the way, the score says “miz”, a term I cannot find any reference to in music dictionaries. Our website is made possible by displaying online advertisements to our visitors. tarregz


It is called La Alborada and parts of it are played with a music box effect? Well done, Best wishes, V. Tarrga are more harmonics later in the piece but this is enough for me to try to get to grips with for the time being! Board index All times are UTC.

Although this probably will never be one of my favourite pieces to play Capricho Arabe, now that is something else Classical Guitar Skip to content. An interesting side note: Forum guitare classique – Forum chitarra classica – Foro guitarra clasica – Free sheet music for classical guitar – Delcamp. Board index All times are UTC. Well so far this is the best I can come up with, if anyone knows how to do alboorada then please let me know if I have got the right idea or not.

I’ve never heard it before. Those slides and harmonics are tough!

When I understood your post correctly, all you wrote is exactly what you have to do here. So much for the accuracy of online translators!

Its not in the score from Prof Delcamp. In German Wikipedia it reads:
