Free Unfingered Notation Edition

Asturias (Leyenda) - No. 5 from Suite Española, Op. 47 by Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). I’ve based this mainly on arrangement on the piano score and my own ideas but I'm also influenced by the John William’s performance. Isaac Albéniz was a Spanish pianist, composer, and conductor. He is one of the foremost Spanish composers of the Post-Romantic era. He is best known for his piano works based on Spanish folk music idioms. He actually never wrote guitar music but was certainly influenced by it which explains why this work actually sit on guitar nicely (tremolo is quite difficult on keyboard). You can also find the tab as a hardcopy in my Classical Guitar Tab book on Amazon.

Pepe Romero's fingering is very close to my edition, the upward arpeggios at 59 are different, but especially the inner rubato section with chords instead of harmonics is super similar. I'd start here.

Williams: I grew up listening to John Williams and still like his direct and rhythm approach.

Bustos: I like lots of what Busto's is doing here but it's different as are the following.
