Wedding for Guitar - In Tab
Had heard Ave Maria played by Michael Lucarelli on You Tube. By luck found the version he used in this book because it was displayed as a preview on Sheet Music Plus. It's exactly what I wanted note for note. Couldn't be happier.

Every song is written for solo guitar. A supplement is included for solo instruments (one voice can double the melody with the guitar and the other is harmony). I have played every song in this book as a guitar solo and they work great. Adding a flute to double the melody is also good, too.

Not complete for me
Imagine my surprise when I received this and found that the guitar parts for about 1/2 of the songs were ONLY THE BACKGROUND and did not contain the melody written into it. The point of playing fingerstyle guitar is so that you can play the melody with the background. About 1/2 of these songs are useable to a fingerstyle player, the other half are the background songs to be used with the supplement. Kind of deceptive when looking at this online, and the arrangements are definitely for Intermediate and above players.

A wonderful collection of popular pieces.
Some of the arrangment are simply wonderful. Some parts, however, could be more complete to give a fuller sound.

great wedding book
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in performing solo classical guitar for weddings. The arrangements, fingering and chord voicings are simple yet eloquent. I have purchased the "To Have and to Hold" classical guitar wedding book but found this one far superior.

My favorite book
I've been playing only a couple of years, and these songs are a bit of a stretch. But the songs are timeless, the arrangements are great, and it's by far my favorite book of guitar music. Very highly recommended.

This book is great for me because it is fairly simple to play, yet the songs sound "full". I am in my sixth year playing the guitar and it is written at my level. Also, it the songs can be played as a duet with another guitar, violin, flute, or piano. I always find it helpful to know what songs are in the book, so including the ones already stated, this book contains Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Trumpet Voluntary, Ode To Joy, Wedding March, Bridal Chorus, Romance, Pavane, and the other version of Ave Maria (Bach/Gounod) as well as the version by Schubert. This book was well worth the money!
