Solo Guitar Arrangements
I have written several solo guitar arrangements. Some of these arrangements are for early intermediate players who are beginning to explore fingerstyle playing, and some are for solo jazz guitar for advanced intermediates who are familiar with jazz chord forms. All arrangements are written in both standard and TAB notation.
