This is my classical interpretation of Lady Gaga’s new song “Applause” for guitar.
It was a little harder to interpret than I had first imagined as the voicing appears on a quite a few off-beat parts of the melody giving a sense of counterpoint in places.
I have some Spanish variations of this song that I was tempted to put them in, but I hope to write TAB’s and sheets later so wanted to keep it simple for people that may want to learn it.
I personally thought I played this slightly too fast but it was so much fun to play it at pace but I would recommend you play this slower
