Format: Softcover & Online Audio
Designed with easy, intermediate, and more challenging parts, this mix of traditional, classical, and original melodies arranged for guitar trio is ideal for a classroom of students at various playing levels. Written in 3-part score format in standard notation only, these 1 to 3-page arrangements are ideal for advancing sightreading skills as well as recital performance.
All the arrangements are in guitar-friendly keys and use open strings as much as possible. The author’s downloadable audio recordings are available for every tune; these can be used strictly as an audio reference or for private or group play-along.
Even beginning guitarists can enjoy the ensemble experience with this much-anticipated book! In addition, many of the first and second guitar parts can be played on another soprano instrument like the violin, flute, or recorder—so a mixed ensemble is also possible.
