=====================================================
Prelude 2 in A Minor by Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909)
=====================================================
Francisco Tarrega wrote truckloads of preludes. I like playing his preludes because they 
short(2 pagers)
You can just read tarrega's preludes straight off a book without the hindrance of page 
or committing notes to memory.
Another reasons why i like to do preludes is that the time spent on working on one vs a 
min song is significantly shorter in general.
Having said this however, Prelude 2 is not an easy prelude and i spent some time on it.
There are lots of barre chords and note slidings (all along the neck) which make prelude 
challenging to play.
Prelude 2 is not for beginners "looking to play their first tarrega piece".
For intermediate to advance players, if you can overcome the pain barrier of the barre 
you will find prelude 2 to be an absolute beauty.


==================
Technique and Tips
==================
Prelude in A minor has 27 bars. Standard Tuning. 3/4 Time Signature. Repeat twice with 
endings. Many barred chords and many slides.

Bar[2] May be a stretch for the left hand. Try changing from 3rd to 4th finger (A string).
Bar[3] There's an alternative chord position. see tab notes below.
Bar[8] After slide, immediately land into a barre chord. During slide, slant your wrist 
in preparation for the barred chord position.
Bar[17] Hard measure. Pay heed to both right and left fingering
Bar[26]-[27] Final 2 measures. Slow down gradually.
