Etudes Electric was composed in response to a need for original electric guitar literature. Selections from this volume may be performed in an applied music jury or recital in a university guitar program. The etudes are motivically intertwined and make a complete composition when performed in order. The pieces can however be performed singly or in any combination. The pieces appear twice in this edition—once unedited in standard notation alone, and then fully edited in standard notation with rhythmic tablature.
