This collection of pieces was first published in 1984 and, at the time, was a forerunner in new music for young and beginner guitarists, offering a refreshing and important contrast to the traditional nineteenth century repertoire. I have used this book throughout my years of teaching and recently have been seeing the music in a different light, making it even more relevant to students today. I put this down to my ideas developing and so finding different aspects of learning to be the ‘most’ important (in other words as I get ‘older’ my priorities are changing!)

This is what I would describe as ‘classic’ repertoire, from a composer who did an awful lot towards exploring new possibilities in composing for the guitar and widening the repertoire during a vital period in the guitars history and development.
This book has been around for a number of years and it is one that I keep returning to, finding more that I like and want to include in my teaching and each time enjoying the fresh and unusual style of the pieces.
I am particularly attracted to the sub title - "10 Popular style guitar studies for adventurous learners"!
