Composed by Jeremiah Lawson. 21st Century,Classical. Individual part. 7 pages. Jeremiah Lawson #863416. Published by Jeremiah Lawson (A0.1271026).

I started composing this single-movement sonata for guitar on October 29, 2016 and completed it on May 11, 2018.  As the title says, this is an homage to Stevie Wonder, one of my musical heroes. This is a roughly 12-minute single-movement that has original themes inspired by the chord changes from the synth break to Stevie Wonder's "Living for the City".  

The work is primarly in standard tuning but the performer must switch to the tuning E flat, A, D, G, B flat, E flat in the final page.  The sonata may be played on classical, electric or acoustic guitar. Although this is not indicated in the published score between measures 236 and 260 you can introduce embellishments and four-measure cadenzas. I suggest inserted cadenzas between measures 255 and 256 as well as between measures 259 and 260.
