Product Overview

Series: Fingerstyle Guitar Tunes

Product Number: 30914M

Format: Softcover & Online Audio

ISBN: 978-15134-6862-4

This collection presents 22 lyrical American tunes including traditional 19th century songs, melodies from the WWII era, and modern-day pieces by William Bay, president of Mel Bay Publications.

Whether it’s a Civil War ballad or a jazz inspired tone poem, Raymond Gonzalez has a gift for creating unique settings that occasionally blend harmonics with normally fretted notes and open strings. The end result is a flowing melody/chord/bass arrangement that is challenging but accessible to the intermediate guitarist.

All of the notation and tab settings in this book appear in standard or dropped-D tuning and are suitable for both steel and nylon-string guitar performance. To keep page clutter to a minimum, the reader is referred to the tablature for string, fret, and harmonic locations. Includes access to online audio of every tune recorded by the author. ©2022, 60 pages
