How To Play Malagueña On Guitar – Easy Version

in Spanish Flamenco Guitar | 30 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 🙂

    The split screen views of the left and right hand is most helpful.

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  15. 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!

  20. 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.
