A Personal Collection of Fingerstyle Guitar Music


This collection of finger-style guitar pieces is a voyage from 18th-century country dance tunes to 19th-century parlor or domestic guitar music, to music that found its way to traditional rural players in the US, to Slack Key players in Hawai’i, and from there to my own music. Along the way we’ll use some of the most important guitar tunings that have come down to us today.
