Best Fingerstyle Guitar Melody on Guitar – Concierto de Aranjuez – Adagio
Best Fingerstyle Guitar Melody
Concierto de Aranjuez – Adagio – Fingerstyle Lesson
Hey guys, today I am going to show you how to play what I think it is one of the best fingerstyle guitar melody of all time. I know that we all have difference taste and preferences, but you will agree with me when I say that a beautiful melody is a beautiful melody. Period.
Today we are checking out the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo and we will be focusing on the Adagio movement,
This part is slow, melodic and extremely beautiful and fun to play on classical and acoustic guitar.
I have been teaching it for many years and people just love it.
This is a guitar arrangement I wrote a while ago where I tried to combine both guitar and orchestral part. You will not find the exact guitar part written by Rodrigo but this arrangement is pretty close to the original and quite easy to play.

The Guitar Melody
Who thought that the best fingerstyle guitar melody would actually also be the most melodic one.
When I listen to the Adagio, I can only think of a few other songs played on guitar that can be so beautiful and easy to play.
One of the song I am thinking is called Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega.
There are a ton of beautiful fingerstyle melody on guitar but only few can really capture you as much as the Concierto de Aranjuez.
Another really important you will have to focus on when practicing this beautiful melody is the interpretation you want to give.
There are three main aspect your want to focus on.
How to Play the melody
I really love to play the melody slowly and with flow.
I focus a lot on emphasizing each single note differently so that melody doesn’t sound flat and boring.
It is mainly played quiet (piano) and even when you strum some of the chords, the dynamics never become loud.
One important thing I love to use is to anticipate the bass note before I play the melody. You will notice that I barely play bass and melody simultaneously.
The best fingerstyle guitar melody needs vibrato, melody and tone.
The vibrato gives more color to the melody and sustain the notes whiles the mellow tone, achieved by using a 45 degre plucking angle, is perfect for this melody.
It is pretty simple to give an interpretation to the piece since the moment you start learning it.
Unlike other pieces where you have to learn it before you actually play it the Adagio has such a captivating melody that is almost impossible to “just play the notes”. You must feel like “performing it”.Get the Full Tab - BlitzGuitar All in Monthly Pass - Classical Vibe Program
