El utimo tremolo is 1 of 2 tremolo songs I know. The other being rescuerdos de alhambra. 
El ultimo is barrios final song, he wrote this piece shortly before he died.
The beat of the song was inspired by the rhythmn of someone knocking upon barrios' door! 
song may take some time to master. Try tarrega's rescuerdos de alhambra
first to get the tremolo technique flowing. Don't expect to learn this song in a week so 
must be patient. Work on the song in parts. Focus on groups of measures
say do 8 bars and move on to the next 8 bars.

Technique
Like barrios' la catedral, this song has quite a lot of unique left hand chord positioning.
This means if you find a certain chord impossible, look at the previous chord and find 
chord position. This makes the chord transition easier.
To find alternatives to the chords, explore along the guitar neck, find the the notes 
sound the same. I normally try to ulitize open strings as much as possible.
This tab fits best for myself. i encourage you to do some research for yourself.

Tremolo and the melody
Right hand. Play All melody notes with thumb (p)
Left hand. Play tremolo with (ami).

Keep the right hand on auto-pilot since it does the same all the time (pima). Focus on 
left chords. Try and think ahead!
For instance when you are in the middle of playing chord A, think of the finger position 
the chord B.


80 bars. Play straight with no repeats.
Undulate the volume of tremolo to add emotions.


Bar[33] The G string needs to be suspend by a full measure. Curl your pinky finger to 
the D note (12fret) without touch the G string below.

Bar[39]-[41]
Hold barre chord all the way while playing all the melodies. This chord has tight 
Wrist could hurt at first. It really takes practice.


Bar[61]
A weird barre chord at 11th fret. I use a cutaway in my video but it is not impossible 
a regular cut guitar. This song goes up to the 17th fret.

Tips
While practising on the tremolo technique, use this simple right hand pattern (pi-pi-pi) 
that you get the gist of the melody and allowing you totally focus on the left hand.
