4.0 out of 5 stars good arrangements for fingerstyle beginners September 27, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a fingerstyle begginner and I can play most of the songs, so I would recommend this book to other begginers who want to keep improving his playing while enjoying some classical masterpieces.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice arrangements. March 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These are some lovely arrangements. The only problem I had was I bought this when I had been playing only about a year, and I didn't have enough experience to play these.

Now I've been playing three years, and the pieces are truly lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the fingerpicking titles September 15, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought a number of "fingerpicking" guitar music books from various publishers. I like this one best. The music is not too hard and very nice to listen to. I really like these arrangements. Good selections of music. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars On the cheesy side January 11, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't have a real bone to pick with this book. It's just a little cheesy. You're basically getting some of the most cliche melodies of concert music arranged for guitar. Some of them are quite nice. Others just don't sound as good on the guitar as they would a fully set orchestra.

Nice thing about this book though is you are getting a lot of music for $8, so even if you only end up liking a couple, you're doing well on the investment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners February 14, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had this book before and a friend of mine really enjoyed it so I gave my original copy to him. I missed practicing with this book so it was time for another copy for myself. The songs are easy enough for beginning fingerpickers, but sometimes could have maybe just a bit more to them to make them a little more melodic or fuller sounding.
