    These are nice arrangements for intermediate to advanced players. As an intermediate player, I found the music challenging but rewarding.

  • August 28, 2007 Find Howard Heitmeyer Arrangements!

    I have played restaurant gigs for 40 years. I saw the Hotel California listed and took a chance on the book. Now I realize why Howard Heitmeyer's arrangements are so much in demand by all levels of guitarists. Most of theses arrangments need a lot of help. Why didn...

  • March 25, 2006 Well Worth the Buy!!

    This book is so much fun to play! Especially for classical guitarist looking to add a little something different to their rep. I learned Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton in less than a week and I played it at a gig over Valentines Day. One of the biggest turn on...

    's to me is that it is written in musical notation. This allows it to be a great additional teaching tool students! I've been playing classical guitar for fifteen years and teaching it for twelve. I could recognize every song in the book and loved them all!
