I somehow managed to write this today although I have been very sick... I really wanted to write a spanish song featuring Guitar ever since my "Spanish Conflict" piece ages ago. Finally, I found a progression that would give a good lead in and then the piece grew from there into a fast 6/8 section and back into a sweet yet dark ending, repeating the A theme slower and softer.

Feel free to give an interpretation or any feedback/thoughts on the music (I love hearing your ideas!).

Instrumentation:
Piccolo
Flute
F Horn
Trombone
Guitar
Cimbalon
Tenor Drum
Tambourine
Viola (section)
Cello (solo)
Contrabass (section)

Created using Finale 2009 and EWQL virtual instruments.

Isn't the cello and the contrabass the same thing? Or am i just ignorant T_T

samulis responds:

Nope. Contrabass are larger than cellos. In fact, Contrabasses are the last remnant of the De Gamba family of stringed instruments (they have a very slightly different shape than other stringed instruments).

Contrabass, upright bass, and string bass are all the same though. ;)

Dude, this is cool, but "la malagueña" is always used for "spanish music" and its like cliche; but i have to admit that your counterpoint is awesome. Have you heard this vertion for classical guitar?, you have to do it.

Good luck

samulis responds:

Hey, that's a real cool version. I had not realized that both progressions were actually used in one song. Thanks for the insight. :)
