The first hairpin appears redundant to the un poco crescendo instruction. Even if you’ve mastered barres, upon reaching measures 11 and 12, you may reach an impasse. In the end, I abandoned my changes and decided to eliminate all acciaccaturas and trailing grace notes.

An unslurred slide means you slide from the first note to the second and strike the second note upon arriving. I find it quite easy so far!

These are not guide finger indications. I used the Antich y Tena edition of Adelita as the source for my edition. I prefer the acciaccatura notation because no one can or should play a 64th note exactly. In contemporary tarrsga notation—at least in the non-classical world—there should be no need for a trailing grace note when the grace note’s pitch is the same as that of the following note.

It’s easier for inexperienced players to grasp this when there’s one acciaccatura note, but it becomes fuzzy for them when there are two notes involved which can be confused for two sixteenth notes. Finally, there is a return to the original key, be it minor or major.

If you have doubts about using my edition, please remember that my changes do not change the music as it sounds. His music is very classical in nature because there is usually a clear melody supported by a bass line that creates traditional classical harmony, chord progression and voice leading. That may account for why most recordings are played at an Andante or faster.

Nevertheless, I opted for unambiguous clarity over interpretive freedom. If you are a novice guitarist, you may feel it is within your reach based on hearing the first half of the song. A change I made that could impact musical interpretation is the addition of explicit dynamic levels to the hairpins.

Both notations produce the same sounding music, but mine should be easier to interpret correctly. Although I have preserved the original D. That is, except for measure 14, where the Antich y Tena and Anido editions show the forte between the hairpins, but on the bottom of the staff while the hairpins are above the staff.

Inner chord voices Because Tarrega was a guitarist he had a brilliant knowledge of how to write specifically for guitar. The second mistake I had heard was playing the portamentos—which are notated in the original as an unslurred slide to a grace note—by striking the end note twice instead of once.

After much thought, I decided that the accents on the notes after the acciaccaturas were too confusing for players without much notational experience. Modern editions write D. This is more than just a theory; it becomes quite clear when you read the music as originally notated and compare it to later editions adelitta mistakenly edit the original notation.

Bottom bass notes 3. In addition, there are usually three “voices” or “lines of music”. Adelita is deceptively simple. Although he did not invent the metronome, he manufactured and sold what became the most popular model. In the 19th century, the term was confused with the appoggiatura.


The performer should have some flexibility as to how to play the ornament. A slide is denoted by a line connecting the two noteheads and does produce an audible slide effect.

Twrrega the slides are not slurred, you strike the second note on arrival. At first, the primary change I made was to extend the slurs from the acciaccaturas [ 2 ] to the note following the acciaccatura forming a so-called reverse or inverted mordent. His music always shows complete command of the instrument.

Both the Antich y Tena and Anido editions clearly use D. At the time of his education, the meaning of hairpins in the music he studied was different than today. I’ve never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Composers as varied as Arelita, Beethoven, Chopin, and Schubert used hairpins as agogic and voicing instructions instead of as dynamic intensity indicators, for which the written instructions crescendo and decrescendo as well as abbreviated dynamic markings were used instead for more information see The Secret Life of Musical NotationRoberto Poli, One section is in a minor key, sounds very bittersweet adeliga sadly dramatic.

Playing the slurs fluidly requires a well-developed little finger.
