The original doesn’t list a tempo. You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems.

You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer to your torso when switching from the Bm. Removing his ls chosen notes invariably degrades his music. The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. Finger 4 stays in place and, despite lifting, finger 1 doesn’t move to a new note; so you’re really only changing the position of fingers 2 and 3.

You may ignore the slide in measure 3. Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t. Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords.

I recommend lloet avoid such shortcuts. This creates the room you need to move fingers 2 and 3 into position 4 stays in place while ni finger 1 onto the third string. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. Despite not continuing to sound, a sense of the B remains, giving the following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord.

Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. If you persevere to the point you can play the one or two hard parts at tempo, you will find your overall playing has improved.


I’ve listed a suggested tempo. Then move your remaining fingers into place. As soon as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar.

Place your right hand index finger on the string above the fret and simultaneously pluck the string with your thumb, lifting your hand in time to avoid muting the string. Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition.

Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody. It’s really just a matter of taste.

Mage chord is already missing a fifth. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.

You could even play one measure one way and the other measure another way. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 to make it easier to play. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord. If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar.

Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled.

The trick is to lift finger 1, allowing 2 and 3 to move and then place finger 1 back down on the second fret of the 3rd string. El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. Finally, llonet may choose to play the penultimate harmonic the A played on the fourth string on the 19th fret with the right hand only. If you disagree, ignore the change.


I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song. Stop the first ,iguel at the 5th fret and dw the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices.

Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument.

It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs. The parts presenting the most difficulty to players are the inverted A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 in measure 7, and the stretch migguel for the G major in measures 11 and I’ve added a rallentando mqre a fermata in the penultimate measure.

If your hand is physically large enough, but you can’t do it, then you need only practice a little bit every day until you can do mmiguel. The measure starts with a B minor, but the B bass note cannot be sustained. Although in principle a simple piece, El Noi de la Mare features some difficult left hand fingering, causing me to rate it of medium difficulty. Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard.
