Classical Guitar Music to Play: ‘Romanza’ by Schumman (arr. Tárrega)

robert schumann romanza
Edited by Neil Smith

The original fingering has been retained in this Romanza and even so, great care must be taken when moving through position changes to avoid abrupt, staccato sounds. Look for guides often not obvious, eg. finger 2 in bar I to bar 2 through the notes C#, D#, E. Listen carefully in bar 12 as the 4 takes the upper line and avoid detaching the last note of each triplet group too much.
