What is your favorite tremolo piece? 

I just started practicing tremolo about a month ago and getting better at it.
Looking for a nice sounding tremolo section to practice, challenging but not too hard.

Thanks!

What is your favorite tremolo piece is one question. Challenging but not too hard is another, lol

Anyways, here's my favorite tremolo piece.

My favorite tremolo piece is "Una Limosna el Amor de Dios," composed by Augustin Barrios (Mangore). It has been performed by several guitarists, including john Williams, and is very beautiful.

RE: What is your favorite tremolo piece? (in reply to Cervantes

By the way, Cervantes, which tremolo are you working on, flamenco or classical? It seems like most tremolo "pieces" are classical, e.g., Recuerdos de l'Alhambra and Una Limosna el Amor de Dios. Flamenco tremolo generally is a segment of a larger effort such as a Solea'.

For what they are worth, a couple of observations on my experience with the tremolo follow below.

I learned the flamenco tremolo from the beginning and have it down fairly well. For some reason, I find the flamenco tremolo much easier to maintain steady control over than the classical tremolo.

My flamenco guitar teacher taught me to develop a stronger tremolo on the trebles by stroking the basses harder with the pulgar. Stroking harder on the basses with the pulgar almost automatically strengthens the iami strokes on the trebles.

I'm gonna interpret your question as favourite to play and not favourite to listen to

Here is the easiest tremolo falseta I know at 3 different speeds.

RE: What is your favorite tremolo piece? (in reply to Dudnote

Here's a variation on the last one. The first part I've messed with for a while, but the second part I only just this minute found a fingering that works although it's been in my head for a while now. It is based on something I heard ages ago from Paco Pena - I don't know what the differences are. I only just learnt this so it can hardly be my favourite to play already and it's not perfect either, but hope you enjoy.

Again at 3 different speeds...

Some more solea, this time Sabicas. It seems everybody learns this falseta.

How's the level Cervantes? You wanna take it higher?

Leñador, you picked a real sweet gem of a cherry peach with that one man. Flamenco at it's best and a magnificient tribute to the late great master. Thanks for sharing!!! Did you try transcribing any of it?

Yeah that piece is pretty mind blowing. From what I understand there's some 8 note tremolos going on in there. But no, I've never tried to transcribe it, way too intimidating for me.

I am practicing flamenco tremolo. I am thinking you could use it in place of a classical tremolo for practice although the music won't sound like it should. I also like Una Limosna but I know it as El Ultimo Tremolo. I like almost anything Barrios wrote, he is an icon and he had a unique style and the guy was crazy good at playing and composing.
My teacher is always telling to me play a rest stroke with the thumb, something I have trouble with but I know he is right.

I remember seeing a Gresha video of him playing a Manolo Sanlucar tremelo that involved 8 and perhaps even 11 note tremelos - it's Gresha at his best. Must try to find it.

I don't know if these qualify as "tremolo pieces" but...
I've always enjoyed Gerardo Nunez's La Cartuja.
Tremolo parts: 00:30 onwards then again at 2:50 onwards (kind of random images on this vid though The switching from 1st to 2nd string is really good practice too.


and of course the classic: Fuente y Caudal (00:57 onwards)

I think this is my favorite.
Is there a tab? Probably wouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Listen to the Tremolo part in "La Trinidad" by Sabicas, very flamenco sound!

The piece starts at 5:10 and the tremolo at 7:23
