  • September 20, 2016 Dublin Response

    I would like to respond to the gentleman from Dublin who hated my arrangements so much. Regarding the typos and layout problems - the mistakes were brought to the publisher's attention but they declined tomake the corrections we asked for; likewise, we requested fold-out pages to avoid page turns...

    but were turned down by the publisher. The notation system that was used at the time (over 20 years ago) was an early Mac program called Note Writer; we tried to re-submit in Finale when it came out but were turned down by the publisher because of the expense involved. Would I do this again differently now? Yes, and I do - everything I write or arrange now is self-published so I can control the end product and also respond to any thoughtful suggestions for improvement. As far as the playability is concerned, I am sorry if it is difficult for you - I have recorded the book and am happy to send you a CD if you would like one. I am happy to talk more - please go to my website

  • November 27, 2013 Excellent For flute - Not so for the Guitar

    My daughter luvs the book. Good arrangements and easy. She's the flute. I'm the guitarist. I don't like it so much. Half of the songs are OK but half are poorly structured and frustrating. BTW - the TOC: Top Notch Selections. If you buy the book and willing...

    to play 3/4 of the pieces. You'll kill at the wedding.

  • June 20, 2008 Musicians beware

    Terrible book, full of typos, needlessly difficult fingerings. I really couldnt recommend it knowing how poorly arranged it is. Half the pieces can be played max. Really lazyly arranged and edited. The book might have been better without the fingerings at all, that way you wouldnt have to spend all...

    your time figuring out what possible idea he had that this would make it easier for people to understand. Typos everywhere, quotation marks as dots, bar lines cut in half. I gaurantee you will have to photocopy almost every part of the this book, just to have a proper rehearsal, as page turns are in the worst places. It will probably make your duo sound worse than it is, with your guitarist frantically playing notes arranged so unintuitively. More hastle than its worth. The person who arranged it clearly has never played through it.
