Cecilia - Aldrine Guerrero
Just got back from vacationing in Hawaii and had an opportunity to sit down with Aldrine Guerrero and go over the tab to Cecilia. Turns out that Aldrine prefers to play some of the notes on specific strings making it slightly more difficult to play than what it could be. Because of this I decided to post two versions of the tab. The first one represents positions that Aldrine prefers and the alternate version represents positions that eliminate the stretching for the D chord in measure 23 of Section B. The alternate version also shows playing the last note of measure 9, Section A, at the 2nd fret of the G string instead of the 5th fret of the E string. Aldrine prefers the tone that the thicker E string provides over the thinner G string.
Both versions combine elements of the studio recording and the live performance at Mike DaSilva’s that kicked off their first west coast tour. Cecilia is a wonderful song written for Aldrine’s Grandmother. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. Tabs can be downloaded on the Tabs page via the link at the top of this page.
