Una furtiva lagrima by the famous Italian opera composer Gaetano Donizetti probably needs little introduction: almost everyone has heard it, if not at the opera, then in a movie! Now I’ve arranged it for guitar, and I think it works very well in this form, too. Right from the start, there’s something familiar about this composition when played on guitar, until you realize—it’s the Nothing Else Matters of the 19th century! 🙂
Like my earlier opera arrangement, Nessun dorma, I’ve classified this one as advanced, as opposed to intermediately difficult to play. It could be both: it’s not that difficult in fact, but it can be a challenge to get it to sound the way you want to. Have a try, I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
