"This book of arrangements is truly splendid. It has a great selection of pieces that are great for weddings and gigs. They are fairly simple and easy to get under your fingers. As well, it is designed to have very few page turns. This is a fantastic addition to any guitarists repertoire. Outstanding work arranging these Maestro Williams!"
- Aaron Torres (happy customer)
This collection of arrangements for solo classical guitar is the culmination of performing countless gigs at weddings and private functions. My aim was to provide a resource book of pieces for the professional guitarist to perform music with minimal practice. My hope is that you will be able to quickly read through a piece without the hassle of unnecessary shifts and notes yet still present attractive music at your function. There are even a few pieces in two keys in the event you do not have time to retune from drop D. I believe you will find these arrangements to be both a practical and valuable edition to your library.
For the student and amateur guitarist, you will find these pieces to be an intermediate-ish level of some of the most popular works for classical music. I hope you will find them worthwhile for study and enjoyment.
