Do you love finger-style guitar by the ocean? This is a super relaxing and lyrical fingerstyle guitar duet (standard notation edition) evoking that feeling. You can hear Brad play it (both duet parts) here:
NOTE: if you want it in TABS...that's coming here very soon.
Guitar 2
plays smooth 8th note arpeggios throughout (representing the "ocean ostinato")--this part is fairly easy for an intermediate player. Guitar 2 plays the melody, always lyrical--it's fairly simple at first, but later is played (optionally) in upper register, and then in split octaves (simultaneously on 1st and 6th strings)--so Guitar 2 is more "intermediate to advanced" (comfortable for a competent high school or college player)... for relaxing enjoyment and even performances.  (For a less-advanced Guitar 1 player...playing the "split octave" passage as a single-line melody will still work great.)   

It's composed by Bradley Powell, who records CDs as The Candlelight Guitarist. "Ocean Ostinato" is from his CD Music for Rest & Renewal (with nature sounds) [2001].

"Bradley Powell's flawless playing allows you to completely relax into sleep or relax into an evening of candlelight and romance.

"The talented and creative Bradley Powell is the Candlelight Guitarist. His music is original and some of the most soul soothing I have ever heard.

Bob McKillop, founder and publisher,
Brad Powell is a talented and highly trained California guitarist and composer who calls himself "The Candlelight Guitarist", and for good reason. His music is perfect for situations in which candlelight figures prominently. Quiet meditation, romance, intellectual stimulation – the soft, pure tones of his Spanish and classic instrumental style open up your heart and render it more receptive to the spiritual messages that these pursuits engender."

"music to soothe and calm and enrich the psyche. Would that there were more Brad Powells out there to help us all through these times. The world would be a saner place!"
