Guitar Tablature: “Liebestraum” by Franz Liszt
“Liebestraum,” which means “dream of love,” is one of Franz Liszt’s slower pieces. Playing this slow-moving, static melody on guitar helps highlight the interesting, flavorful chords Liszt places behind it.
Franz Liszt was a Hungarian-born German Romantic composer who was also a virtuoso pianist — some say the greatest pianist of all time. He enjoyed fame during his lifetime, hung out with Chopin and Mendelssohn, and was father-in-law to the great opera composer Richard Wagner.
The rhythm in every measure is the same — an eighth rest followed by five eighth notes. The seventh chord arpeggio sequences all take place on the top three strings, too. Keep your playing light to help the subdued melody show through.
