Private guitar teacher.
- The collection is a very good range of songs and music from popular songs to very early music. The technical level goes from the very simple to moderately difficult. There are pieces which will appeal to everyone from John Dowland to the Beatles and some are arranged very adeptly as duets. "Here, There and Everywhere" is one and "Cancion" by Manuel de Falla is another.
- "Ode to Joy" isn't really suited to a guitar. It seems to crop up in every music tutor - and not just for the guitar - and really it needs an orchestra (and a voice!) to do it justice. Other than that, there is a really good selection of music in this book. Well worth the money.
