How To Play Malagueña On Guitar – Easy Version

31  comments


The number one song I've been asked to play at performances is this traditional Spanish guitar classic.  Learn this fairly easy version of Malagueña on guitar using your fingers. It can be played on a steel string guitar… but sounds very authentic on a nylon (classical) guitar.

I’ve divided into two short videos to make it easier to follow.

​Many persons have recorded a version of Malagueña. Did you know in the US it was made popular by José Feliciano and Roy Clark?
I just never thought of Roy Clark as a Spanish guitar player 🙂

  1. This learning version is truly Awesome!
    The split screen views of the left and right hand is most helpful.
    Tomas, you have really nailed it this time. My favorite lesson yet!

    Thanks so much.

  2. Thanks again for sending me this wonderful lesson. I’m starting to practice hoping to learn it quickly. Please keep those lessons coming. :))

  3. Thanks for this wonderfull lesson. Check on the pronunciation of the syllable -gue- The -u- does not have two dots -Ü-(diéresis), therefore it is “silent”. Say it as in the word “guerra” (war). It’s a minor thing but…

  4. Thank you so much! I looked this up because one night on Jimmy Fallon Show, Keith Richards told that his grandfather taught him to play guitar with *one song*. He told Keith that once he learned to play this song, he could easily play any song. It worked. He suggested this song for anyone who wants to learn to play guitar.

  5. Thank You Tomas for a very informative and well paced tutorial.

    A pleasure to participate in. Even for an old newbie like me.

    I will continue to practise now. Regards Stewart B

  6. thanks with your method of teaching it looks so easy could you tell me what this symble means it is shaped like a square n thanks again mike

  7. Thank you so much for making this available. I’m finding learning guitar very difficult and really appreciate being able to play something.

    Please keep doing these videos.

  8. The best, clearest explanation and demonstration I’ve found online! I love the little “hammer-on” touch in Bar 3 (3rd string – open to second fret)! What do you think of double picking the first string (pointer, middle) in the chorus? Great stuff, Thomas … thank you!

  9. GREAT SONG. I USED TO LISTEN TO A FRIEND OF MINE PLAY IT, 25 YEARS AGO, AND WISHED I COULD PLAY IT ONE DAY. TKS FOR THIS GREAT VIDEO. I WILL SHOW HIM ONE DAY WHEN I SEE HIM AGAIN THAT I CAN PLAY IT TOO.

  10. Although I need an intermediate version, I am so happy to see this lesson for beginners to enjoy. It is such a beautiful song and is a pleasant respite from the usual blues/rock/metal music so prevalent today.

  11. Thank you very much. Today was my first Spanish Guitar tune and you have been a real help. Looking forward to taking it to Spain once Ive worked on it a bit more!!!!

  12. Thanks for the video, instruction, & split screen. Very informative, easy to follow, now just have to try to emulate. Am a beginner (2nd time around, 50 years later), having just bought a Cordoba Fusion 12 Spruce “crossover”, on-line from Sweetwater in Indiana. Expect delivery in a couple of days. Found your site by looking for Malaguena guitar sheet music on-line & was hooked by your tagline, “How to Play Malaguena on Guitar- Easy Version.” You make it appear very easy, & if I’m able to discipline myself, maybe I’ll get to that place of “perfect practice makes perfect” (eventually). Thanks, looking forward to perusing the other aspects of your site.
