    Salt Lake City
    Difficulty Level:
  • January 21, 2006 Great for the classical guitarist

    If you want to play in a Mariachi band, this is not the book for you. If however, you are a solo classical guitarist, these transcriptions are pretty fun. While simplistic in some areas, the arrangements often seem to capture the feel of a full band where the guitarron is...

    thumping the bass line while the violins and/or trumpets are jamming out the melody.
