Typical of short guitar pieces of the Romantic Period, Lagrima is a prelude in ternary form, meaning it has two sections: Each section lasts for eight bars or measures and is immediately repeated.
After the second repeat of the B section, the D. Lagima piece finally ends at the Fine sign in bar 8. So, the complete playing order of the two sections is: Each of the two sections of Lagrima has its own key. The principal key is E major and is the key of the A section. The B section is in the key of E minor to provide some tonal contrast. Note the change of key signature between sections bars 8 and 9. The four-sharp key signature of E major is cancelled by ‘natural’ signs and replaced by the one-sharp key signature of E minor.
This is the main technical challenge of Lagrima, and although it’s not an overly difficult piece, this is why it’s not considered a classical guitar piece for complete beginners. Coming from the late Romantic Period and given the name Lagrima, which is the Spanish word for “teardrop”, is a clue that this prelude should be tinged with a touch of melancholy and rarrega with an expressive singing style in the melody.
The machine-produced audio version below can’t reproduce that very ‘human’ quality, so it’s up to you to infuse your playing with the necessary emotion – but tarrrega to the point that it sounds sentimental.
Use some vibrato on the higher notes that have a longer duration, and also play the melody garrega where practical with rest stroke to emphasise it and add some sweetness to the targega. If you’re not familiar with rest stroke, it’s a picking-hand technique that involves plucking the string and bringing your finger to rest momentarily on the string above.
In other words, if you pluck the first E lagrmia, let your finger come to rest on the 2nd B string. The slightly different angle of the stroke and the extra force needed to pluck and follow through to rest on the next string produces a louder sound and sweeter tone. It makes melody notes stand out from the inner harmony notes, which are played with normal ‘free stroke’.
Improve your ability to read the standard notation staffs of Lagrima and other pieces instead of using tab with its many limitations. Solo Guitar Playing by Frederick Noad is an excellent teaching resource that I’ve used for teaching notation to my fingerstyle and classical guitar students. Lagrrima takes students from complete beginner level to sight reading intermediate level pieces.
