These fingerings are there to enhance or help create particular musical phrasings, articulations, textures, sounds and characters, while taking ease and success of playing into account. The level of these editions varies from pieces designed for players in their first year to advanced, so hopefully you'll find some pieces that are just right you. Arrangements for Ensemble are at the bottom of the page.

The other movements in this suite work better in D major, but the C major arrangement of this movement might be a good choice for you if you are playing the Gavottes alone and find them difficult to play in D or you just like the sound in C. These three pieces were originally written for the five course Baroque Guitar. I learned them many years ago, while studying in Vienna. It's not only Renaissance music that has the power to Console. This wonderful suite is Losy's most famous work.
He wrote much more, but his manuscripts are very difficult to decipher. Arranged and fingered, January, I've been playing this beautiful and profound Sarabande since the s.
This transcendentally beautiful fantasy from the early Spanish renaissance, originally written for the vihuela de mano, echos from the stone walls of the Middle Ages.
A few days ago, I found this original transcription folded in another piece of music almost thirty years later! Here's a scan of my handwritten manuscript. An elaborated intabulation by Dowland of the well known anonymous tune. Here's a delightful piece that I freely arranged in G major from the Dowland Intabulation. It is set in such a way to resonate and articulate naturally and beautifully on the guitar. This music truly has the "Power To Console".
This piece is from Elizabethan England. The divisions are written in the style of the Renaissance. Simple anonymous versions that pair very nicely. An easy piece using the upper notes. These are lessons from Aguado's Method Book, but they are beautiful pieces! These are actually the first classical pieces I found at the public library and played back in the early 60s.
Confusing to read, but good to see, at least once. These three beautiful little 'landlers' remind me of the music that flows from the Vienna Woods and my time living there! An arpeggio piece with the left moving to 15 fret, 2nd string, while playing 1st string open. This creates a nice texture. Great arpeggio piece with thumb and 'i' finger of the same string! Great for developing right hand balance and freedom of moving between 'i' and 'p'.
This is a well known arpeggio piece that challenges your sense of meter. It sounds great when you continue to feel the triplets and let the moving notes be syncopated. This piece is also great for developing connection across the bar line, by moving the left hand with the first 'i' finger in the new measure.
I've added the ties across the bar lines to encourage this. Slansky, St. This is the well known etude, but with special fingerings to make it more flowing and connected. This is the another well known etude, that I have provided special fingerings to make it more flowing and connected. This is a tremolo setting of the famous Romance.
This is a special setting of the famous so call Spanish Romance that's actually claimed by several nations! The elaborations bring out it's Eastern European roots.
This is a another easier setting of the famous Romance. This version has the standard first e minor section with a tremolo second section in A major. This is the standard familiar Spanish setting of the Romance. An easy arrangement using the upper notes. A simple arrangement, using the upper notes. An easy arrangement, using the upper notes. This little piece is one of the most well known, ever. Thanks to Mick Hickey in Cork, Ireland for his tablature The water might be wide, but this piece is short and sweet.
A long time favorite of mine. I love the sentiment and the music. It's arranged in a classical, meditative style. Here's my take on the most covered song in history. This is set in a classical style, with a meditative and intense mood. Here's my arrangement of 'Blackbird' This piece is unique in that Paul McCartney's guitar part, without the vocal, makes a great guitar solo! When we transcribe other Beatle pieces for guitar solo, we adapt the vocal melody to guitar with added accompaniment.
This piece is also great for learning shifting and sliding techniques, as well as cross string dexterity. This song has a unique ringing sound that is bright and flowing, created by the seventh fret capo, and upbeat and off beat rhythms and textures. McCartney includes this among his personal favorites of all the songs he has written and it fits the classical guitar beautifully.
This very stirring French Christmas Carol fits the guitar beautifully, but challenges the techniques we use to make a musical line sing, something that can only be done if the melody is connected and continuous, like the human voice. The notes, fingerings and techniques used in this arrangement were chosen to create both a legato, singing melody and to bring out the dramatic, stirring and dignified quality that is inherent within this carol.
This sweet and hopeful melody falls easily and beautifully on the guitar. This simple and charming little Traditional Chinese melody is good for a first year student to get used to playing in the upper posttions. This is the way my wife, MaryLou and I have played this for years. I just finally wrote it down!
