O mio babbino caro (G. Puccini)

Difficulty level: Intermediate | Two pages

O mio babbino caro is a very well-known aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi by the Italian composer Giacomo Puccini. This opera was first performed in the year 1918, so this year is its 100th anniversary - a perfect time for me to publish my arrangement and video.

This aria is beautifully melodic and tender in character and fits very well on the guitar. In my arrangement, I've used several techniques to get various sounds from the guitar, including flageolets. My arrangement is nevertheless fairly manageable to play, not too difficult, I think.
