The measure starts with a B minor, but the B bass note cannot be sustained. I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard.

I have not made right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music.

Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument. Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the llobet final chord in a different voicing. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords.

You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition. As soon as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar.


Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t. 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. 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. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. If you disagree, ignore the change.

A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the marf section while the high strings provide the main melody. The chord is already missing a fifth. You could even play one measure one way and the other measure another way. 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.

If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. I’ve listed a suggested tempo. Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure.

Despite not continuing to sound, a sense of the B remains, giving mivuel following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord. El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song.

You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer to your torso when switching from the Bm. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding Noo which will form part of the chord. 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 left hand fingering for measures 14 and 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of 1—3. The original doesn’t list a tempo.

Even famous professional guitar players will simplify se of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. Although in principle a simple piece, El Noi de la Mare features some difficult left hand fingering, causing me to rate it of medium difficulty. Then move your remaining fingers into place.

It’s likely most guitarists would play it that way without thinking about it, so I notated it explicitly.

Finger 4 stays in place and, despite lifting, finger 1 doesn’t move to a new note; so you’re really only changing the position of fingers 2 and 3. Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.

The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 llobef make it easier to play. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure. The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices. Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production.
