Manuel Maria Ponce -- Estrellita

Tabbed by Joshua Serrano (Nov 2004)

In addition to his famous Mexican song, Ponce scored Estrallita for classical
guitar. The transcription here is a reflection of this score. Listen to Adam
Holzman's peformance of this piece on the Naxos CD of Ponce's collected preludes
and other pieces for inspiration. I transcribed this tab based on his recording.

A beautful yet simply piece to play.  The fingerings should be obvious, so I
have not included them.  The note duration, however, is difficult for me to
figure out. One reason is because the recording uses heavy rubato, which comes
recommended for this piece.

A series of right parathenses ")" means a downstroking arpeggio.

Key:  A major

Tuning: standard
