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.
- 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
