There are 4 other books in this series


One of five really popular books - hundreds of copies sold - each containing four trios in contrasting rhythms of the world. They can be played individually or as a sequence of highly varied rhythms from Samba to Saraband, Waltz to War Dance, and more!
Classical Guitar Magazine writes "Well written ensemble music"

Players Three guitars or large ensemble
Difficulty Easy to Intermediate - standard rises very slightly through the series


From Saraband

A trio for intermediate Guitarists in which the tune is developed systematically and passed from player to player as the complexity increases. It is primarily resident in positions I and VII and benefits from particular emphasis on volume and tone changes. Many of the long notes benefit from being taken as high up the neck as permits, so that rich and full vibrato can be added. For example, top part, second bar here, really shouldn't be an open G if the player's skill permits.
