'Recuerdos' has three sections.

  • Section 1 in A minor, played twice.
  • Section 2 in A major, played twice.
  • Coda in A major.

    Some arrangements of the piece return to Section 1 & 2 before going to the coda.

  • Section 1 in A minor, played twice.
  • Section 2 in A major, played twice.
  • Section 1 in A minor, played twice.
  • Section 2 in A major, played twice.
  • Coda in A major.

    For the sake of brevity in this tutorial we will play through each section once (with repeat) then move to the coda.

    The piece is also in 3/4 time & makes extensive use of tremolo. The tremolo technique is used to play the melody on the higher strings, while the thumb plays the bass notes that flesh out the chords.
