Tárrega's arrangement is sublime! His distribution of the notes over the fretboard really works beautifully. I ask you, my friend, to reconsider!
Ok I searched and searched on YouTube and found only 4 performances with the slides. Of those 4 this is the one I like most. It's a bit fast to me but the phrasing and articulation are very good:
Well - it's marked andantino so I think a lilting/lively version would be appropriate.
