The guitar is a great instrument for transcriptions. Its features lie quite in the middle of the spectrum of the melodic and harmonic possibilities. It is also in between most styles, making it suitable for “translating“ other music into its language.

Over the years I have transcribed and arranged many pieces for the guitar, solo and in chamber music. I am looking into getting most of these arrangements published, but until then, please contact me if you would like to purchase them independently. 

The pieces that are available are the following:
