This sad and beautiful work has become one of the most famous Argentine songs. It is a privilege to offer this solo guitar arrangement by the prominent Argentine guitarist and composer Jorge Cardoso.

    More challenging than I would have thought. I listened to the David Russell version and thought, oh that's easy....not so. But well worth the effort.

    A very impressive and sensitive arrangement. Listen to the David Russell rendition... a bit of a challenge for the intermediate guitarist, but with perseverance, you can get it down. Then enjoy this wonderful piece of music.
