Tárrega Would Have Played a Stratocaster by Jason Field
May 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am – May 16, 2021 @ 11:30 pm
Francisco de Asís Tárrega y Eixea (21 November 1852 – 15 December 1909), a classical guitarist and composer of the Romantic period…and the Fender Stratocaster electric guitar (1954 – Present).
Each adorned in musicological revelry, and undeniably legendary in their own respective incalculable impacts and influences on the world of guitar and music. History saw them separated by half a century, but in my head they live together.
Playing my three favourite Tárrega compositions on the Strat – Lagrima, Adelita, and Pavana – only serves to strengthen my tongue-in-cheek notion that should their timelines have overlapped, Tárrega and the Stratocaster would have found each other.
