We are pleased to bring you another tutorial from our friends at EliteGuitarist.com. Today’s tutorial is for the Allegro Solemne from Barrios’ La Catedral. This last movement of ‘La Catedral’ is one of the most recognizable pieces in the classical guitar repertoire. The Allegro Solemne is a toccata-style fast movement that demands the highest amount of focus, agility and technical prowess. In this tutorial Ines Thome seeks to take away the intimidation factor that guitarists may experience before tackling this piece. She breaks down the entire piece bar by bar and provides detailed instruction on right hand arpeggio techniques, left hand fingerings, and the overall musical direction of the various sections in the piece. Whether you are an advanced player or a an aspiring advanced player, there is something for everyone in this tutorial. The guitar used is a 2005 Fritz Ober: a clear, resonant and powerful instrument, worthy to convey Barrios’ masterpiece composition. Check out the rest of this tutorial and many other classical guitar repertoire tutorials provided by EliteGuitarist.
