The solos in this collection present a myriad of moods on the guitar. They were written to be very expressive, contemplative pieces which could be performed in a variety of secular and sacred settings. Most of them are from three solo collections previously released, entitled "Guitar Meditations", "Guitar Airs and Ballads" and "Timeless Solos for Guitar" . Some of the pieces were scored for 7-string guitar; however, they can also be performed on 6-string guitar-indicated are the alternate 6-string pedal tones in the tablature part. Many of the solos use a "cross-picking" technique alternating higher position closed strings and open strings, resulting in a 'harp-like' effect. The included tablature parts allow for a clear presentation of this effect and clarify where on the fingerboard these passages should be played. A number of the pieces are in Dropped D tuning, highlighting the rich resonance that tuning gives the instrument. All of these solos may be performed by the classical or fingerstyle guitarist or, as originally performed, with a pick. Explore the diverse moods presented in this collection and make full use of the many avenues of expression offered in these pieces! A companion dual CD Guitar Imagesis available with all 25 solos included. Performance Notes.
