Russian Folk Songs for Guitar Solo is a selectionof nine popular traditional Russian songs arranged foracoustic guitar. In working on the adaptation of these traditional songs I tried to keep to the authentic melodic and rhythmic structure intact. I even took one step further by creating a harmonic structure which preserved the vocal tradition while maintaining the original phrases and rhythmic variations. I also tried to adapt folk guitar technique in my version of these popular and charming Russian songs. The arrangements are in notation and tablature and will be useful for both the fingerstyle steel stringed and nylon stringed guitarists.
