It’s likely most guitarists would miiguel it that way without thinking about it, so I notated it explicitly. The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. The measure starts with a B minor, but the B bass note cannot be sustained.

I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. If your hand is physically large enough, but you can’t do it, then you need only practice a little bit every day until you can do it. Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song.

El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. As soon as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar. You may ignore this as well.

This creates the room you need to move fingers 2 and 3 into position 4 stays in place while bending finger 1 onto the third string. The trick is to lift finger 1, allowing 2 and 3 to move and then place finger 1 back down on the second fret of the 3rd string. The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic. Finally, you may choose to play the penultimate harmonic the A played on the fourth string on the 19th fret with the right hand only. The parts presenting the most difficulty to players are the inverted A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 in measure 7, and the stretch required for the G major in measures 11 and I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure.


Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t. Then move your remaining fingers into place. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. Place your right hand index finger on the string above the fret and simultaneously pluck the string with your thumb, lifting your hand in time to avoid muting the string.

Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard. It’s really just a matter of taste. Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody.

Finger 4 stays in place nki, despite lifting, finger 1 doesn’t llkbet to a new note; so you’re really only changing the position of fingers 2 and 3. It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs. In measure 7, you may migueel tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 migeul make it easier to play. Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music.


Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords. If you disagree, ignore the change. I recommend you avoid such shortcuts.

Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus. You may ignore the slide in measure 3. If your hand is not physically large enough for al guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument.

That’s simply ,are I tend to play that transition. Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord.

The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices. I’ve listed a suggested tempo. Finally, Lpobet added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing. The left hand fingering for measures 14 and 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of 1—3.
