A collection of sacred favorites for fingerstyle guitar. In addition to the relaxing beauty of the arrangements, guitarists will find the music to be quite playable especially with the help of tablature and the companion stereo CD recording. Hymn favorites like Softly and Tenderly; My Jesus, I Love Thee; and Be Still, My Soul are featured. Also included are two original works for guitar: Tranquillo (an homage to George Gershwin) and Had He Not Loved Us.

    I found these to be very interesting arrangements of traditional hymns; definitely for the intermediate player. One great feature of this book is that the sheet music and TAB are in separate sections. This helps with reducing page turns. Mostly solo arrangements but a couple of duets (I transposed the...

    melody & used a capo to get a wonderful Bb trumpet/guitar duet).
