I’ve added a rallentando and a fermata in the penultimate measure. El Noi de la Mare dl a Catalan folk song, both a lullaby and a Christmas song.

Finger 4 stays in place and, despite lifting, finger 1 doesn’t move to a new note; so you’re really only changing the position of fingers 2 and 3. The measure starts with a B minor, but the B bass note cannot be sustained. The arrangement uses a dropped-D tuning and consists of three voices. This creates the room you need to move miguep 2 and 3 into position 4 stays in place while bending finger 1 onto the third string. Despite not continuing to sound, a sense of the B remains, giving the following minor third interval the feel of a complete E minor chord.

That may facilitate getting both your left and right hands in position to the play the final harmonic. I’ve made very few edits to the music, none of any significance.


It is one of Miguel Llobet’s best known arrangements of Catalan folk songs. If you omit the third, is it really a G chord of any sort? You may ignore this as well. If your hand is not physically large enough for the guitar you own, you will need a smaller guitar. llobt

I’ve listed a suggested tempo. A bass pattern and the mid-range l,obet the chords provide the rhythm section while the high strings provide the main melody.

I recommend you avoid such shortcuts. The music allows a lot of room for interpretation, from choice of tempo to tone production. I have not provided right hand fingering because it’s pretty straightforward. Place your right hand index finger on the string above the fret and simultaneously pluck the string with your thumb, lifting your hand in time to avoid muting the string. Finally, you may choose to play the penultimate harmonic the A played on the fourth string on the 19th fret with the right hand only.

The trick is to lift finger 1, allowing 2 and 3 to move and then place finger 1 back down on the second fret of the 3rd string. The final harmonic is an artificial harmonic.

Also, without the G, the chord is a Bm7sus.

You should also drop your elbow and pull your arm closer ee your torso when switching from the Bm. It’s really just a matter of taste. You could even play one measure one way and the other measure another way. Llobet was quite expert at harmony, orchestrating each string as a separate instrument. Keep finger 4 in place on the immediately preceding A which will form part of the chord.


The chord is already missing a fifth. El Noi de la Mare—arranged by Miguel Llobet. Removing his carefully chosen notes invariably degrades his music. If you persevere to the point you can play the one or two hard parts at tempo, you will find your overall playing has improved.

Instead of taking a shortcut, the trick to playing the Gmaj9omit5 without losing a beat lies in the preceding chords. As soon as you switch from the Bm to the minor third interval, point finger 1 roughly perpendicular to the neck of the guitar. Finally, I added a final measure with a soft chord reprising the original final chord in a different voicing.

That’s simply how I tend to play that transition.
