I used the Antich y Tena edition of Adelita as the source for my edition. The first hairpin appears redundant to the un poco crescendo instruction.

A slurred slide means you slide from the first note to the second and do not strike the second note, allowing it to sound as a result of the slide. Since the slides are not slurred, you strike the second note on arrival. In this lesson I discuss aspects of Tarrega’s compositional style. Each voice, part, line is heard clearly and distinctly in it’s own “musical space”. I’ve never been one to use forums, but the GT forum tarfega full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels!

The performer should have some flexibility as to how to play the ornament. The second mistake I had heard was playing the portamentos—which are notated in the original as an unslurred slide to a grace note—by striking the end note twice instead of once.

Despite that possibility, I included them assuming they represented changes in dynamic intensity and added explicit intensity levels that were missing at the ends of the hairpins. In addition, there are usually three “voices” or “lines of music”. If they were slurred, you would not strike the second note. By the 20th century, however, the notion of avoiding repeats had become widespread.

Top melody notes 2. I also replaced the trailing grace note portamento representations with a modern-day unslurred slide.

Although I have preserved the original D. Composers as varied as Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, and Schubert used hairpins as agogic and voicing instructions instead of as dynamic intensity indicators, for which the written instructions crescendo and decrescendo as well as abbreviated dynamic markings were used instead for more information see The Secret Life of Musical NotationRoberto Poli, Bottom bass notes 3. It is not clear, however, that it qualifies as a mazurka. Therefore, I assume—perhaps incorrectly—the repeats were not meant to be observed.

If you are a novice guitarist, you may feel it is within your reach based on hearing the first half of the song. Although he did not invent the metronome, he manufactured and sold what became the most popular model.


You’re supposed to play the acciaccatura as part of the same beat as the second voice bass note, not ahead of it. Adelita is deceptively simple.

Playing the slurs fluidly requires a well-developed little finger. I had heard at least two mistakes made with respect to playing the piece.

In the end, I abandoned my changes and decided to eliminate all acciaccaturas and trailing grace notes. Still, today the classical guitar world cannot bring itself to use the term slide and much confusion abounds regarding the difference tarreya glissandosportamentosand finger shifts.

The overall form of ‘Adelita’ is also typical of his small scale solo guitar pieces. This is contrasted with a section in a major key that is joyful sounding. They tarreag not even refer to dynamic levels. The hairpins in the Antich y Tena edition of Adelita —faithfully preserved in the Anido edition, but butchered in modern editions—that follow the contours of the notes instead of being placed horizontally above or below the staff—and also lacking accompanying dynamic intensity markings—may represent agogic considerations and not dynamic tareega changes.

Notation Changes and Commentary. A slide is denoted by a line connecting the two noteheads and does produce an audible slide effect.
