Tarrega – Capricho Arabe and Lagrima (Video)

Listening to this piece, played by David Russell about 12 years ago, changed my world! It remained one of my favourite Spanish pieces but I somehow never got to learning it. Now I finally did and decided to record it as well. So, I present to you – Capricho Arabe by Francisco Tarrega…
Recorded with the live multicam technique using 2 Oktava Mk-012 mics only, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and a single vintage lens – Minolta 28mm. Guitar: 2006 spruce top Bernd Holzgruber.

As a bonus, I decided to record another Tarrega’s piece, Lagrima, in one take, as I played an excerpt of it in my latest instructional video – How to eliminate squeaking noises on classical guitar. Many listeners asked me what that beautiful piece was and if I could record it some time soon, so I did. Enjoy!
