This volume contains sixteen pieces for the beginning classical guitar duo. Efforts have been made to include composers of note from various periods such as Tchaikovsky, Dowland, Beethoven, Bartok, and Bach, yet the music is not above the abilities of beginning readers. By and large, the key signatures have only one sharp or flat and the accidentals are minimal. The music falls within first position and difficult bar chords have been avoided. The book will provide beginning duos access to music by great composers that is not beyond their capabilities. Written in standard notation only with suggested left hand fingering. Convenient pull-out parts are provided for guitars 1 and 2.
