Different textures result from arpeggiating or plucking the chords as well as playing near the bridge mlguel near the fretboard. Stop the first string at the 5th fret and play the harmonic on the 17th fret with your right hand.
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 the most difficulty to players are the inverted A major chord in measure 3, the Gmaj9omit5 ep measure 7, and the stretch required for the G major in measures 11 and You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer to your torso when switching from the Bm.
The measure starts with a B dde, but llobet B bass note cannot be sustained. The chord is already missing a fifth. I’ve listed a suggested tempo. Even famous professional guitar players will simplify some of the fingerings by omitting or replacing notes. I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord.
I recommend you avoid such shortcuts.

You may ignore this as well. 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. The inverted A major isn’t as hard as it seems. Ditching the B destroys the harmonic link to the beginning of the measure. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music.
That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. 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.
If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. It’s likely most guitarists would play it that way without thinking about it, so I notated it explicitly. Either your hand can make the stretch or it can’t. It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs.
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.
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. In measure 7, you may be tempted to leave out the B in the Gmaj9omit5 to make it easier to play. The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic.
Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument. Finally, you may choose to play the penultimate harmonic the A played on the fourth string on the 19th fret with the right hand only.
The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices.

The original doesn’t list a tempo. 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. Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords.
Don’t tense it, just make sure it isn’t overly curled. El Noi de la Mare migel a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song. The trick is to lift finger 1, allowing ,lobet and 3 to move and then place finger 1 back down on the second fret of the 3rd string.
It’s really just a matter of taste. That’s simply how I tend to play that transition. You could even play one measure mmare way and the other measure another way. I don’t really have any suggestions about the G major in measures 11 and The left hand fingering for measures 14 ds 16 could be changed to use strings 2—4 in place of 1—3. Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.

El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance. Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing.
The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. 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. A bass pattern and the mid-range of the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody.
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.
Then move your remaining fingers into place. You shouldn’t do that for a couple of reasons. I have not provided right hand fingering because ,are pretty straightforward.
