Llobet arranged this traditional folk song for guitar and it carries with it a sad and unusual story. Amelia has found out that her husband has been unfaithful with her own mother. Her will or “testament” is written with the final instruction of allowing the two to be together.
A key technical feature of this piece is the use of artificial harmonics which take up several measures. Practice this passage without the harmonics before adding them in so your left hand can be secure. This will allow your focus to be on executing the harmonics cleanly and with musical shape.
