A beautiful collection of guitar music for every occasion

Whether you like to just listen to good guitar music or would like the music to play on a guitar yourself, either way you will agree that guitar music is soothing, invigorating- well, simply the best! I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and started just because I wanted something to jolly me along whilst singing. I began playing in my youth group and in a few bands. After a while I decided to expand my skills and learn to play classical guitar music, which opened up a whole new world as I learned to read music and became more competent in playing guitar with other musicians. Since then I have played with adults and children and often just to me, all be it only on the accoustic guitar. Playing classical guitar music is therapeutic and soothing, wheras strumming guitar chords rouses and inspires me to sing out words of power and wisdom.

I hope you find my hand-picked collection of some of the best guitar music to be what you are looking for. You will find that much of it is suitable for the beginner as well as the more experienced person playing guitar.

      Interesting selection of folios, suggest that you might llike to create a few niche lenses from your best selling genres since few guitarists will be interested in all of them.

      I don't play guitar. I sing though, and I have the greatest respect for those that can play guitar well. I also like to listen to acoustic guitar music at home to relax :)
