Books | Guitar Tab

Catalogue No: AC72714
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
This book is a great resource for any fingerstyle player looking for high-quality solo guitar arrangements in this genre. Mark's beautiful renditions make these classic songs playable for a variety of skill levels. With many of the arrangements, advanced beginners will focus on playing the piece the first time through, while intermediate and advanced players will continue on as the pieces develop and evolve in complexity.

Included are a bluesy rendition of the classic Amazing Grace; a cool instrumental version of Alison Krauss' Down to the River to Pray from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou; two lovely Celtic tunes in DADGAD tuning; and several old-time jazz arrangements, including Just a Closer Walk with Thee and Old Rugged Cross.Six of the arrangements use standard tuning; two use Drop-D; and two are in DADGAD. One of the highlights of the book is Mark’s arrangement of the Irish tune Salley Gardens, a stunningly beautiful Celtic harp-like setting in standard tuning!

The CD features full-speed performances of all of the tunes. In addition, a complete slow-paced version of each tune is included, along with Mark’s spoken tutorials.
