Excellent arrangement for intermediate

I am a Carlos Gardel fan and made an arrangement of this tune for vocals; however, this one is superior for guitar solo. In my opinion a beginner piece might have a few eighth notes but not a syncopated tango back beat... also beginners generally stay in the first 5... frets, but this goes all the way up to the 12. It is a great arrangement, but if you are just getting started, don't be discouraged.









This is a hard to find guitar classic. Very good arrangement.
