Lágrima by Francisco Tárrega

Lágrima is one of my all time favorite songs on guitar.  Written by one of the premiere composers for classical guitar, Francisco Tárrega, it plays to the guitar’s strengths and offers many possible interpretations.  The song is simple, yet profound, saying a lot in a short amount of time.  I also think Lágrima translates well to the steel string guitar – the ringing sustain brings an added brilliance to the song.
