Acclaimed fingerstyle guitarist El McMeen has arranged beautiful music for guitar from the harp, song, pipe and hymn traditions. Utilizing the evocative C-G-D-G-A-D guitar tuning, the author describes the appeal of each tune presented and notates the arrangement in detailed tablature and music. The arrangements are a result of a process of experimentation -with ornamentation and counterpoint lines playing in different keys and registers.
Emphasis is placed on creating and preserving the flow of a piece, sensitivity to accenting, and avoiding any 'jarring' elements, while at the same time following the author's Three-second rule (a guitarist must do something interesting every 3 seconds of a solo to sustain the listener's interest.) Each tune contains brief performance notes and, in some cases, lyrics. To aid in the performance of these songs, this book has a Low-C Chord Chart. The pieces included have very diverse origins, yet they have two common elements - they were not originally composed for the guitar and they are certain to be treasured!
