About my free ensemble music

Here is a variety of proven guitar ensembles you can download: free guitar duets, trios, quartets and more.

Most of my arrangements that my students really enjoy are published, and hence under copyright, but these free pieces will give you a taster of the fun and the "big sound" that comes when you play ensemble guitar.

These are simple ensembles requiring minimal preparation time. After all...
A piece which is easy gives instant gratification and gives you the chance to shape each phrase.
A piece 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 ensemble.
Strong melodies, regular rhythm and short phrases are easy to "debug" and a lot of fun to play.

Much modern Christmas music is excellent on Guitar, but copyright restrictions prevent me putting up some of my favourite arrangements. But enjoy these - and discover than many countries have set the same words to quite different melodies. Non-UK visitors might find at least one unexpected tune in here!
