I wasn't aware Barrueco recorded La Cumparsita, on which CD does it appear? Maybe you're confusing it with La Comparsa, a Cuban dance by Ernesto Lecuona recorded on Barrueco's Cuba! CD on the EMI label.dlmoak wrote:Barrueco has published the version he recorded.
Thanks Yeke for the info, I have those books and for the most part they aren't the more sophisticated arr.'s that Arias plays on his recordings, geared to a more intermediate level player. The books have TAB too. The La Cumparsita arr. in the book is in a different key and bears almost no resemblance to the one you saw him play on YouTube.Yeke wrote:The message from Aryeh made me review the version of anibal Arias (on Youtube) and I do agree there's something special and genuine
in his version.
I just wanted to inform you that this version is published: under the title "Tangos" there are at least 3 volumes (as I did find the 2 and 3)
published by Melos.
The volume 2 is made of Anibal Arias arrangements. in this one you'll find:
- El dia que me quieras
- Una noche de garufa
- La cumparsita
- El apache argentino
- Los mareados
- Milonga triste
- Romance del barrio
- A Homero
The 3rd volume is dedicated to Ruben "Chocho Ruiz".

Just listened to the old David Moreno recording and YouTube and it's really nice - but I think the reason it sounds so good is that it's for two guitars - one guitar plays the melody and the other plays the accompanying chords in a 4/4 tango strum so it sounds full of lively rhythm.drew wrote:I have spent hours searching for a good arrangement of this piece. The best I have been able to find was arranged by David Moreno. Unfortunately the sheet music is so faded its areal battle to make out all the notes. I am in the process of rewriting and rearranging it - the essence is still there. You will find a recording of his version on youtube - albeit a very old one
