Two Little Pieces

Two pieces for classical guitar. I was going to call them studies but that sounds more boring. The first (all about spreading easy chords with the thumb) has a jazz feel, the second is lively and dramatic.

The first is about Grade 2 (Trinity), the second is harder - and harder to define Grade-wise, I think.

Three Tunes

Amazing Grace, The Can Can and Joshua at the Battle of Jericho.

Elementary, but not as easy as those in the previous post.

The Sailor's Hornpipe: with Tab

The Sailor's Hornpipe with tab and chords.

Elementary Tune Sheet

A sheet of very elementary pieces for children - ranging from 3-note tunes to 5-note tunes. It includes Old McDonald Had a Farm and Little Bo Peep.

In case anyone is interested in a fuller version of the Three Note Jig included on the sheet, I've uploaded a complete version of that tune as well.

Haydn Trio

A movement from a Haydn Baryton Trio, arranged for three guitars. I've not seen any dynamics in the original and as it seems like a good piece for pupils to work out good ones for themselves, I thought I'd leave them out too.
