Barre Chord Basics Just $1.00 
Barre (bar) chords have long been the giant stepping stone towards being able to play almost any song. 
While the physical aspect of actually playing them just takes time, the management of where to play them and what to call them requires clear and logical explanation of the concepts.
This 4 page PDF booklet is designed for just that purpose. 
It deals with the most common bar chords, the 'E' chord shapes and 'A' chord shapes.

All charts are $9.99 ! 

Guitar Ensemble Arrangements

If you are a guitar teacher or music educator you might have noticed the continued rise of the guitar's popularity. How do we involve so many guitarists in our school music program and give them the opportunity for music making with others? 

Get them into a Guitar Ensemble!

After 35 years of teaching and 25 years of guitar ensemble directing and arranging, I have decided to make my arrangements available for purchase.

Each arrangement has been edited, planned and proofread to ensure enjoyment, accuracy,  ease of playing and educational content.  Some guitar teachers prefer to use TAB instead of standard music notation and I have included both versions for many of the arrangements. 

These charts are delivered digitally as PDF files and each purchase includes mp3 files of the full ensemble recording and each separate part with either a click track or bass part for students to reference and practice with. 

The arrangements are of varied skill levels and combinations and I have attempted to give a clear indication of the level required for each part.


Thanks for stopping by!
