    I studied guitar in college and received a BA in music, and I've seen my fair share of sheet music. The repertoire contained in this book spans a the full history of the guitar, and includes a wide variety of music, and it is definitely handy to have around...

    just for its' sheer volume. However, in playing through many of these pieces, I have found the notation quite lacking. Specifically, there are places where the fingerings are reversed, or incorrect fingerings are used, or there is no notation at all (such as where to begin a bar or shift position). There are also many places that indicate slurs between notes on different strings (which, for those non-guitarists out there, is not possible). It is definitely nice to have this volume around, but I am overall dissatisfied with the seeming desire to place quantity well ahead of quality in the editing process.

    Right now I'm trying to build my reading chops and so far this has done wonders. And for classical players all over it's got plenty of good material. I recommend it to any nylon connoisseur.

    A Must have for any classical guitarist. This book contains a large amount of work which is great to build up a repetoire.
