That’s simply how I tend to play that transition.

Fl your hand can make the stretch or migusl can’t. El Noi de la Mare is a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 to make it easier to play.

If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices.

Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand. Instead of taking a shortcut, the lq to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords. 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.


Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord. Finally, I added a final measure with ds soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing.

Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music. I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and I’ve listed a suggested tempo. It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs. Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production.

Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.

You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. 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.

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.

The chord is already missing a fifth. Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument. It’s likely most guitarists would play it that way without thinking about it, so I notated llobt explicitly. You may ignore this as well.


El Noy de la Mare (Llobet, Miguel)

El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. As soon 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 mighel 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 Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure.

I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure.

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. The final llobeet is an artificial harmonic. That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. If you disagree, ignore the change. The left hand fingering for measures 14 and 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of lpobet.

Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled.
