Classic Masterpieces Made Easy for Acoustic Guitar (Book + Online Audio)
During the course of my teaching piano and guitar, I have not come across another book that took these classic masterpieces and arranged them for the beginner guitar student.

During the course of my teaching piano and guitar, I have not come across another book that took these classic masterpieces and arranged them for the beginner guitar student. There is an amazing amount of literature like this for the piano, but not for the guitar. My goal with this book is to fill this void in the guitar literature.
