Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument.

You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer to your torso when switching from the Bm. Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing. As soon as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar. 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.

It’s really just a matter of taste. It’s likely most guitarists would play it that way without thinking about it, so I notated it explicitly.

The parts presenting the most difficulty to players are the inverted A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 in measure 7, and the stretch required for the G major in measures 11 and I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic.


Noii textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge or near the fretboard. I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and 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.

That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure. If you persevere to the point you can play the one or two hard parts at tempo, you will find your overall playing has improved. It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan migguel songs.

A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody. El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet.

The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. 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.

Despite not continuing to sound, a sense of the B remains, giving the following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord. The chord is already missing a fifth. You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t.


The original doesn’t list a tempo. I’ve made very few edits to nli music, none of any significance. If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar.

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. Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition. Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled. I’ve listed a suggested tempo.

You may ignore this as well. You may le the slide in measure 3. Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord.

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.
