His life was dedicated to increasing interest in the concert guitar, establishing the proper technique, transcribing music from folklore to masterworks by the greatest composers and composing many of the timeless pieces still heard throughout the world today. His esteemed pupil Emilio Pujol, the leading twentieth century musicologist and teacher of the classical guitar, wrote his biography which was originally published in Spain as TÁRREGA: Ensayo biográfico (Los Talleres Gráficos de Ramos, Afonso & Moita, Lda., Lisboa 1960).
