"Recuerdos de la Alhambra" for Classical Guitar by Francisco Tarrega - Video, Sheet Music and Tab
"Recuerdos de la Alhambra" is a famous classical guitar piece written by Francisco Tarrega (1852 - 1909). "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" is Spanish for "Memories of the Alhambra". The piece is famous within the Classical Guitar Repertoire for its extensive use of tremolo. Tremolo is a technique where the guitarist plays a single note in the higher registers rapidly with the ring, middle and fore fingers. It creates the illusion that the note is being sustained for a long period of time. While this is going on, a different melody is played in the bass register by the thumb.
