What I’m curious to know is why Capricho Arabe is generally considered quite an advanced work. I agree it is a very difficult piece to interpret well and get the right degree of romanticism without becoming a bit hammy, but in pure technical terms?

I don’t want to sound smug as I’m not a great player by any stretch and struggle with many pieces that are generally considered much easier than this one. But really the only bits I find slightly awkward in CA are the third position barres after the key change and some of the descending scale passages if I try to play them atabe great speed which is an interpretation I don’t really favour.

It could be that I’m getting it all wrong but it doesn’t sound too bad, to my ears at least. I’d be grateful to know where people have problems on this guitzr, so I can go over those bits and check I’m doing it right. I may post a recording if I can get the sound quality a bit better. Fast descending passages whether you like them or not, they make sense That third position barre is hard to keep the bass note ringing full length Opening slurs that come back later are hard to get and keep even in an increasing speed.

Beyond that it’s a hard piece to interpret musically. The dynamic contrasts can be subtle. Deciding what voices need to be brought out.

There’s tons of stuff that requires a somewhat advanced degree of musicality. I agree with you mostly and I heard your recording of it too, which I really liked. About the fast sections: Conversely, I think in most versions I’ve fuitar the section after that, starting on the 4th string E and ending on the 32nd notes, is played too slow. It could be that’s just the way I first heard it played mind guitr. I’m not saying it’s a piece without challenges, and I’ve been working caprricho it for some time and haven’t done a single play yet without a few mistakes.

I just wondered whether people agreed with me that its main difficulties are those of musicality and interpretation rather than technicality per se. I will share my take on it sometime.

At the moment whenever I try and record my playing’s really quiet and my breathing’s really loud, which I’ll try and reverse before posting anything! I think that xrabe it is appropriately graded. There are pieces and parts of it that are very easy to play but when you are doing barres and slurs with the pinky and the stretches therein it gets really tough from a technical perspective to play cleanly.

I have been seriously studying the CG for 3. Caprlcho people start with this piece yikes or start it after playing for a year or less because they believe it isn’t all that hard but have you ever heard the results of this? Check out utube if you want to see what I am talking about.

Capricho Arabe Difficulty? – Classical Guitar

Or even check out our own forum member’s postings. Of course to their ear it probably sounds “good” My guess is that you do not have a teacher to help you discern what sounds good and what doesn’t sound good. This gets all sorts of new players into bad habits early as from a conceptual aspect CG music is all really pretty easy. The ascending chromatic scale introducing the D-major section also adabe accelerando and has to be played rather rapidly toward the end.


Capricho árabe (Tárrega, Francisco)

The ornamentation in the D-major section can be a little tricky with the 4th finger slurring from a fixed hand position. If the rapid sections are played moderately giutar accelerando it makes the piece sound belabored.

But then again, too much can ruin it by trying to turn it into a virtuosity showpiece. My guess is that you do not have a teacher to help you discern what sounds good and what doesn’t sound good. Apparently he finds Arabe “ridiculously easy” — even though he doesn’t understand caprich concept of alternating RH fingers, tone production or playing with nails!

But what the heck, I’m a glutton for punishment! I’ll have a go at posting it, and hopefully get some of the arane and critical feedback a teacher would provide. Thanks for the advice. I got my chops busted on another thread when I advised a beginner to read a method book and try some xapricho pieces before he tackled this one. They’re not two separate things. You can’t nail that accelerando zrabe good scale technique.

And you can’t make the melody sing without being able to play legato and with good tone. In fact, to my way of thinking, musicality is the goal of good technique. But I practice that kind of thing because maintaining and improving my technique gives me better control over the music.

I would definitely not call CA ‘ridiculously easy’ – although coming from an electric background originally I can see why some people with no idea of classical technique and big egos would possibly say that.

That’s not what I was trying to get across, so sorry if it seemed that way! But I think you can distinguish between them sometimes as well – I mean, the rubato and timing CA requires isn’t really a question of technique as such. The contrast between the beauty of the melodic passages and the drama of the single-note passages is the soul of this piece.
