El testament d'Amelìa - Basic Membership


El testament d'Amelia by the greatest Catalan guitarist of all time Miguel Llobet is a somnolent piece with a tragic story of a man who falls for the mother of his wife as his wife lays dying of an enigmatic illness. Two of his other famous pieces - Canco del Lladre and El noi de la Mare are also available here on the website.


This piece certainly has a few technical challenges including various slides and artificial harmonics mimicking the melody:

  • Artificial harmonics sound be played with the index finger resting on the string directly above the fret 
  • Pick artificial harmonics using the anular finger
  • Vary the tone during repeats using a combination of dynamics, phrasing, and tonal colouration

Let your fingers fly!
