View Full Version : Guitar players: name that tune.

There's this (as far as I can tell) pretty famous piece of (classical?) guitar music which, over here in Belgium, was used in a radio commercial recently. I figured out how to play it (yay!), but I have no clue what the name of the piece is, or who wrote it. So I'll be needing your help. :)
It's played on the three high strings (at least the way I play it): the G and B strings are open. The tab for the high E, which should be enough to recognize the song, in the first part is:
All notes are the same length. So who can help me?

Absolutely no clue - sorry.
Try searching for that number sequence in Google - maybe you'll locate the tab?

I recognise it from your TAB (I can play it too) but I cannot for the life of me remember what it's called. IIRC, it was on an album by John Williams (the guitarist not the composer).

OK, hook up your speakers and tell me if I've interpreted the notes right:
Click on 'Romance' on this (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004T0P4/qid=1077198035//ref=pd_ka_2/102-2271468-0896927?v=glance&s=classical&n=507846) album.

I hear [b]aspects[b], only aspects, of [b]Ode to Joy[b]. It could be a variation on the melody but.... Anyway, tell us what the commercial is for; there are entire websites dedicated to answering "What's the song from that commercial?"

Should have previewed all those interim posts.

I just want to say that I'll answer this question--after I really wake up. Who can quote chapter and verse at 7 AM? I've been playing this puppy so long that I can't remember, right now, the author and title. Someone else will post before then with the proper information, but remember: I answered first!

Thanks guys! It was indeed "Romanza"/"Romance", and I knew the John Williams version. Now I can go label my tabs. :)

Here we go, Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004U0ZV/qid=1077203980/sr=1-40/ref=sr_1_40/104-3846367-0499917?v=glance&s=classical) has a short snippet--click on the "Spanish Romance-Anonymous" link. I was thinking it was a Sor piece and that slowed me down.

And here (http://www.mxtabs.net/tabs.php?path=Guitar,m,811,Misc,Intermediate+-+Spanish+Romance,80970&PHPSESSID=50e785d7c58182f3900ef8538e9c015d) is the first section in TAB. (But I don't know how accurate it is.)
