Canco del Lladre - Premium Membership


Canco del Lladre or 'Robbers' song' is an arrangement of a Catalan folk song by the famous Spanish guitarist Miguel Llobet. This piece has a beautiful and memorable melody and the maestro Llobet put in place a beautiful sequence of chords to support the gentle lilting melody.


This piece is also in the Grade 6 syllabus for the Trinity College of London classical guitar exam. It is quite short but even so there are some lovely technical challenges particularly with the natural harmonics that permeate the piece and provide a kind of counter melody.

The assiduous student should play that harmonics with the right-hand closer to the bridge for increased clarity.

Let your fingers fly!
