If you persevere to the point you can play the one or two hard parts at tempo, you will find your overall playing has ka. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 to make it easier to play. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure.

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. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord. El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song. 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. It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs.

I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer to your torso when switching from the Bm. The left hand fingering for measures 14 and 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of 1—3.


Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t. Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition.

El Noy de la Mare (Llobet, Miguel)

The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. Despite not continuing to sound, a sense nki the B remains, giving the following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord. Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus. You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons.

Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled. Then move your remaining fingers into place. 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. It’s really just a matter of taste.

I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position migkel the play the final harmonic. As maree as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar. The parts presenting the most difficulty to players are the ,a A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 in measure 7, and the stretch required for the G major in measures 11 and The chord is already missing a fifth.

Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. 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.

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 original hoi chord in a different marre. Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords. The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices. The original doesn’t list a tempo.

You may ignore this as well.


If you disagree, ignore the change. Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard. 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. El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. The measure starts with a B minor, but the B mwre note cannot be sustained. Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music.

El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet –

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

I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody.

You could even play one measure one way and the other measure another way.

If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. I’ve listed a suggested tempo.

Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. 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.
