"Bicho Feo" or "Ugly Bug," was a humorous tango that often appeared toward the end of Barrios's concert programs or
as an encore piece that always "brought the house down", according to contemporary accounts. No manuscript of this
piece has yet been found. In 1913-1914 Agustin Barrios Mangore recorded the piece on the Atlanta record label. In late
2008/early 2009 two 78 recordings were discovered by two respected Barrios scholars working independently, Richard
Stover and Federico Sheppard, who both generously donated their discoveries to the Cabildo Museum in Paraguay. One
of these recordings has since been reissued on Chanterelle Records.
This transcription was made from both recordings and is for educational purposes only. I make no commercial claim on
the music of Agustin Barrios Mangore. I first performed "Bicho Feo" in concert benefiting the Hospice Austin charity at
Laguna Gloria Art Museum in Austin, Texas on June 4, 2009, which was, to my knowledge, the modern-day
premiere/first post-Barrios performance/USA premiere of the work. There was a great deal of spontaneous laughter from
that audience at that performance, and I hope that many, many more audiences and guitarists will equally enjoy it.
