snapshot of score of Lullaby

Face

a study for solo classical guitar

This is possibly my oddest piece. I don’t believe I was ever up to playing this number, if only because it has some huge stretches in it and needs enormous hands/long fingers. It’s really intended for classical guitar (nylon strings), but I got better results from steel string samples for the MIDI recording on offer here (in particular the harmonics were a bit iffy from the nylon strings) — but of course that’s only what’s available in my own relatively modest sound library.

There’s no PDF score extract available here because the whole thing’s only three pages long, so you’ll have to make do with the snapshot on the right, and you can follow the whole score with the YouTube video below.
