Ravel's Bolero for Classical Guitar

Ravel's Bolero for Classical Guitar composed by Maurice Ravel (1875-1937). Arranged by Jerry George. For guitar solo. Solo. Classical. Sheet Music. Text Language: English; Standard notation and tablature. 4 pages. Published by Santorella Publications (SP.TS098).

ISBN 9781585601981. With Text Language: English; Standard notation and tablature. Classical.

Though he was accused of imitating his predecessor Debussy, Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) is seen today as a successor. One critic compared the two saying that where Debussy shimmers, Ravel glitters. This is true. Ravel's clear-cut lines are quite spectacular and set apart from Debussy's hazy contours. Bolero is the perfect example of his uniqueness. As with many masterpiece themes, Ravel's Bolero was brought to life in modern day film as the musical backdrop to the comedic classic "Ten". This award winning film featured the most glamorous model of its day, Bo Derek and co-star Dudley Moore. Guitar players can experience this French composer's brilliant use of percussive Latin nuances by learning this famous piece. This fingerstyle classic published by Santorella Publications transcribed by Jerry George, includes standard notation, tablature and suggested fingerings.

    is a somewhat simplified version of the melody. And as mentioned, could be a little more elaborate would not increase the difficulty of execution.

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 11, 2009 Ravel Bolero

    This piece requires a de-tuning of the 6th and 5th strings to D and G which is not really necessary and makes it more difficult to memorize. Furthermore, the melody part is mostly single note and could improve with a bit more harmony (chord)
