Spanish Classical Guitar


The Spanish Classical Guitar differs a bit in that it is Spanish Guitar music played on the traditional Classical guitar. The Spanish Guitar and the Classical Guitar are interchangeable for the most part. The classical guitarist includes pieces of spanish and flamenco guitar in his repertoire. But the two disciplines are not one and the same. There are differences in the music and in the instruments.


Here are a couple of Spanish Guitar pieces for you to listen to. If you want to hear more classical guitar pieces go to the Listen section of this website. I play these pieces on a traditional classical guitar.


  • Spanish Romance - - Evocative and haunting piece. Challenging in that it is played all over the fretboard but played andante so reasonably easy to master.
  • Adelita by Francisco Tarrega - This is a wonderfully haunting piece and one of my favorites. It has some nice sliding around on the fretboard. If you are a beginner classical/spanish guitarist you might want to add this to your repertoire. It is not too hard to play and sounds great. This is an excellent piece to learn if you are a beginner. It sounds great and is not too hard to learn.
  • Leyenda - This is the first 30 seconds from this awesome Spanish piece. This piece simply rocks. The spanish guitar just blows me away! This piece is rather fast and it is more for the intermediate player.
