About my free ensemble music

Proven guitar ensembles to download: free guitar duets, trios, quartets & more.

My compositions are published, but these free arrangements still give you the fun and the "big sound" of ensemble guitar.

They are simple - easy to rehearse. After all...

  • An ensemble which is easy gives instant gratification and the chance to shape the sound
  • An ensemble which is too hard just leaves a nasty taste in the mouth

If these pieces leave you wanting more - I'm sure they will - read the "Where Next" section.

Don't be surprised that virtually everything can be played in the First position.
Do be surprised how it sounds!

These files are in PDF format - they may look a little dark on the screen but they print correctly.

Extras - Free Christmas Music!

Christmas music always works well in a newly-formed group.
Strong melodies, regular rhythm and short phrases are easy to "debug" and fun to play.

Much modern Christmas music works well on Guitar, but copyright prevents me putting up my favourite arrangements. But enjoy these - and discover than many countries set the same words to different melodies. Non-UK visitors may find an unexpected tune here!
