Take the Full Course on This Piece!Ah, Malagueña! It's one of the best loved guitar classics. If you mention you play classical or Spanish guitar to a group of non-guitarists, someone is bound to ask, "Can you play Malagueña?". And now you can say, "Why, of course." Like many of the most well-known guitar pieces, it was written originally for piano then later transcribed to guitar. It's been adapted by such diverse musicians as Stan Kenton, Jose Feliciano, Bill Haley and the Comets, Carlos Montoya (who brought it to flamenco guitar), Roy Clark (who brought it to Hee Haw), and many others. Malagueña has been arranged as big band jazz, flamenco, Iranian pop, and many other styles, often with lyrics. Ernesto Lecuona was a Cuban composer and musical director and conductor of the Havana Philharmonic. Malagueña, written in 1928, is by far his best known, but several of his works are mainstays of the latin classical guitar and piano repertoire.

Hi, I’m Allen Mathews.
I started as a folk guitarist, then fell in love with classical guitar in my 20’s. Despite a lot of practice and schooling, I still couldn’t get my music to flow well. I struggled with excess tension. My music sounded forced. And my hands and body were often sore. I got frustrated, and couldn’t see the way forward. Then, over the next decade, I studied with two stellar teachers – one focused on the technical, and one on the musical (he was a concert pianist). In time, I came to discover a new set of formulas and movements. These brought new life and vitality to my practice. Now I help guitarists find more comfort and flow in their music, so they play more beautifully. Click here for a sample formula.
