How do you combine the elegance of the classics with the energy of contemporary grooves? The answer is Global Adventures for Fingerstyle Guitarists. Considered by critics as the Fernando Sor of the 21st Century, Steve Eckels has composed and arranged 23 fingerstyle guitar arrangements based on the styles of Carlos Santana, Yanni, Klezmer, Bollywood, Bob Marley, Brazil 66, Mariachi, Jose Feliciano, Harry Belofante, Flamenco, and others.
Eckels, a National Board Certified teacher, has tested and perfected the arrangements in his high school guitar classes and the music is playable and recreational for high school age and older. Eckels arrangements are known to millions of guitarists for their clarity of notation, playability, and "hit-song" sound.

This book is a perfect supplement for Eckels landmark book 'A Modern Method for Fingerstyle Guitar.' Audio CD includes a recording of each tune played by the author. Standard notation and Tablature.
