Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing. Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument.

I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. El Noi de la Mare—arranged mars Miguel Llobet.

El Noy de la Mare (Llobet, Miguel)

It’s likely most guitarists would play it that way without thinking about it, so I notated it explicitly. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard.

This creates the room you need to move fingers 2 and 3 into position 4 stays in place while bending finger 1 onto the third string. You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. The trick is to lift finger 1, allowing 2 and 3 to move and then place finger 1 back down on the second fret of the 3rd string. You could even play one measure one way and the other measure another way. El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song. Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.


The left hand fingering for measures 14 and 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of 1—3. I’ve listed a suggested tempo. If you disagree, ignore the change. As soon as you llobbet from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar.

The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic. You may ignore this as well. Then move your marr fingers into place. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition. Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes.

Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. The original doesn’t list a tempo. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort?

I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. The measure starts with a B minor, but the B bass note cannot be sustained. You may ignore the slide in measure 3.

It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs. Either your hand can make lkobet stretch or it can’t.

A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody. The parts presenting the most difficulty to players are the inverted A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 in measure 7, and the stretch required for the G major in measures 11 and Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music.

Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure. The music allows ce lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. noo

The chord is already missing a fifth. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 to make it easier to play. Although in principle a simple piece, El Noi de la Mare features some difficult left hand fingering, causing me to rate it of medium difficulty. Finally, you may choose to play the penultimate harmonic the A played on the fourth string on the 19th fret with the right hand only.


I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord. If your hand is physically large enough, but you can’t do it, then you need only practice a little bit every day until you can do it.

Place your right hand index finger on the string above the fret and simultaneously pluck the string with your thumb, lifting your hand in time migue, avoid muting the string. Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords. Despite not continuing to sound, a sense of the B remains, giving the following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord.

Mifuel you persevere to the point you can play the one or two hard parts at tempo, you will find your overall playing has improved. It’s really just a matter of taste. Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer rl your torso when switching from the Bm. Finger 4 stays in place and, despite lifting, finger 1 doesn’t move to a new note; so you’re really only changing the position of fingers 2 and 3.

The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices.
