Eleven original compositions for the classical guitar composed in the eclectic style for which Frederic Hand has become well known. Written in standard notation only, some of these pieces allow for optional improvisatory sections (About Time and Missing Her). The composer performs all of the compositions on an accompanying recording. Some pieces require retuning the sixth string to low D. The level of difficulty ranges from easy to difficult, with the majority of the material falling at the intermediate level. Program notes are included for each piece. The enclosed CD presents performances of all the pieces by the composer.
