Time signature 2/4; standard tuning

2 bars  (p i m i m i )
6 bars ( p p a i m p )

Augustin Pio Barrios Mangore a paraguyan guitarist who played 
on metal strings. Preludio is a sad song reminiscient of Bach. 
The song is structured like Bach's "Prelude in C" with each bar 
being repeated (See earlier article). Between the two songs, I 
find this song more difficult. Many of Barrios' songs require 
great fingerwork on both hands. He is one of those guitarists like 
tarrega who composes using the lowest note to highest 
(the 19th fret of the high e string) I have been playing 
barrios for years. 

Bits and pieces of songs and never entirely because they are not 
easy. I will add more barrios in the near future, i hope 
preludio will suffice for now.

This song is challenging on both hands, predominately the 
left. Preludio is not a song for boys but men! Even now 
as I play this song, my wrist hurts from the onslaught of 
barred chords. ( p i a m a i ) pattern for the right hand 
mostly

Play it slow at a constant tempo. No rush. In slow songs, 
all notes should be suspend or held as long as possible. 
The right hand plucking also alters subtly so pay close 
attention to the ( p i a m a i ) pattern
