This set of 24 pieces arranged for solo guitar is intended to be a resource book for the gigging guitarist. For years I have had to edit many of the arrangements I own of these popular pieces to create a more practical and easy to read piece for my gig. Here in this edition I have tried to avoid awkward shifts and fingerings while taking out unnecessary harmony, leaving an attractive arrangement that requires minimal practice. For the professional guitarist my hope is that you will be able to quickly read through a piece without the typical hangups and get the job done smoothly and professionally. I have even taken the time to arrange a few such as Pachelbel's Canon in D (typically with drop D tuning) in two keys. While the D major key works great, you might find it useful to play the C major version so you can avoid a retuning if you are pressed for time. For the student and amateur guitarist, it is my wish that you will find these arrangements to be great additions to your library. These pieces are some of the most popular works for classical music and I hope you will find them worthwhile for study and enjoyment.
