My eBook edition of this great work by J.S. Bach originally thought to be for solo lute although research seems to indicate that it was written for a keyboard instrument called the Lautenwerk which sounds very much like a lute. I tried to maintain as much of the original notation as possible using the Neue Bach-Ausgabe as my source. There were a few instances of chords that were not playable on guitar and some of the voices cannot be sustained as the notation indicates. Otherwise I was surprised to find that nearly everything is playable as written; challenging but playable. Preview my edition by viewing the examples below. This suite is also available within Fundamentals of Guitar Technique.

This is my e-edition of the well known Carcassi studies for guitar. I have honed this through many years of teaching students classical guitar technique. I still think these studies are some of the best ever written for the instrument.

"I find your collection of etudes musically rewarding as they sound more modern and cool, which differs from Sor's etudes. These are certainly more interesting to play than merely pedagogical etudes beginners often work on." -Yasuhiro Shimizu, Japan.
