Home > Solo instrument > Estudio No 1 in C by Francisco Tarrega Solo Guitar with notation and TAB

I really am guessing the date of composition here, having searched for it unsuccessfully! If anyone can put me right with references I would be grateful. Please note, this score is enlarged and spaced for ease of reading. If you prefer something smaller and more compact to avoid page turns, then download the parts.

This is a nice arpeggio study which presents an opportunity for apoyando strokes with ring finger to emphasize a melody. Tarrega, as you probably know, was a fine teacher and wrote many instructional pieces. I did this arrangement for an electric guitarist who was a non-reader but wanted to play classical guitar. The tab is purple in my score - I did it on an earlier version of sibelius but can't remember why nor how to change colour back - silly me….

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
