This is the first book to publish an extensive collection of pre-Renaissance music transcribed for guitar! Gregorian Chant melodies -- enormously popular in recent years -- form the basis for this volume. Inside, Garno argues that this music of the first 1500 years of Western history should no longer be ignored by guitarists. In support, he presents copious notes along with a myriad of single and multi-movement works, and concludes that such music is appropriately played on the guitar. A pioneering work that should be in every serious guitarist's library. Notation and tablature. Intermediate to advanced level. Includes access to online audio.
