Difficult songs I want to learn.

Does anyone know the classical piece named Recuerdos de la Alhambra by: Francisco Tarrega? Or possibly Bouree' in E minor by J.S. Bach? These are intermidiate to advanced pieces that I have learned.



Well if you are familiar with these pieces, do you know any other songs/pieces that are the same difficulty as the pieces mentioned above? I want to move on with my learning so that I can get better.


Thanks!
Adrian.

By the way, any genre of music would be okay as long as it is difficult like the pieces in the message above.

Hey,
Is there any music for those pieces on the web. I'm not familiar
with those but if I had music I'd probably be able to recommend
some pieces for you.
Later,

If you can play Recuerdos cleanly at the tempo in your lesson
that is truly impressive!! That is fast!!

After I've had a closer look at it I'll see if I can recommend some
classical pieces.

In terms of other styles, I saw on your hp you like Eric Johnson.
If you can play Cliffs of Dover you should check out Desert Rose
and the live version of Zap from the G3 cd. Some Steve Vai (For
the Love of God maybe) or Yngwie (Black Star) would also be
pretty hard. Another song with some pretty hard parts is Elmira
St. Boogie by Danny Gatton. It's a blazing country instrumental
which is really worth checking out. There is music for it on
powertabs.com.

I'm interested in the other responses to this thread...

Hey,

I asked my guitar teacher about Recuerdos. That in an extremely
hard piece!!

In Canada we have a big music school called the Royal
Conservatory of Music and the guitar program in it has ten
grades plus an introductory level. Generally to get into a
classical guitar program at university you have to have grade 8
or the equivalent skill level. That piece is in Grade 9 so if you
can really play it it well after only three years of playing guitar
that it quite amazing!!

I'm only in grade 5 so anything that I know would be far below
the level of Recuerdos.

Later,

Adrian

Albeniz: "Leyenda (Asturias)"
Albeniz: "Granada" (could be a companion piece to "Alhambra", both inspired by the same place!)
Tarrega: "Capricho Arabe"
Villa-Lobos: "5 Preludes" (these are beautiful pieces, really exploiting the sonorities of the guitar)
