Hints on ADELITA:
I perform this piece in Tempo Rubato, meaning I speed up or slow down the tempo to better capture the way I wish to interpret the piece. When first beginning to learn any piece, I suggest you do it in the tempo that is written. There are tough ornaments in this piece, especially if you are new to the guitar. I suggest omitting them for now until you have a better grasp of the instrument. There are also a lot of tough bars on this piece. I suggest practicing them a lot seperately if you are struggling with them. If you are pretty new to the guitar, this piece will be too tough for you. I suggest playing LAGRIMA first. Also, some people may have questions about how I wrote down the tablature and the sheet music/tab. I have a seperate article entitled “Reading my tabs/sheet music” in the “Editorial” section that explains how to read them.
