Francisco Tarrega - Study in E minor Breakdown

In today's lesson, we will be looking at a study written by Spanish composer/guitarist Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909).

Tárrega is considered by many to have been responsible for the revival of interest in the guitar as a concert instrument during the 19th century. His relationship with the guitar builder, A. Torres, resulted in a guitar which has stood the test of time and is still a blueprint for many of today's concert guitars. The new guitar's superior sonic qualities inspired him both in his playing and in his view of the instrument's compositional potential. As a result, Tarrega became a prolific composer.
