El testament d'Amelìa Online Classical Guitar Lesson


El testament d'Amelia is a lugubrious & plaintive piece from the Catalan master of guitar - Miguel Llobet. The theme is based upon an old story of a young woman that is dying suggesting that her soon-to-be widow seek 'comfort' with her distinctly healthier mother with whom it would seem her husband had been having an affair with. Who knows perhaps it is this heart-breaking discovery which lead to her somewhat untimely downward spiral.

Performance Points

  • Don't keep to a strict tempo
  • Use rubato generously 
  • Aim for a soft & dulcet tone
  • Let Amelia's emotion flow through your fingers
  • Try to make the artificial harmonics ring clearly above the underlying base notes
