Our arrangements of public domain works or our own compositions for classical guitar as PDF, GIF, PNG ou JPG attachments. These must be tablatures which we have created ourselves, with all necessary care. Since tablature is too imprecise in the expression of polyphony, it is compulsory to include a version in standard notation along with our tablature. Tablatures taken from the internet which we have not produced ourselves will be removed without warning.

Fancy some blues?
Without tablature: ... 12&t=75505

“In the Dark All Cats Are Blue” is a jazzy moderately slow blues. I wrote part A long, long ago as an accompaniment to a standard blues song but it took me a few decades to realise it was strong enough to stand on its own as a solo piece. Then it was just had to add a simple matching second part.

There are three minor technical challenges here: damping, synchronizing the chords with the bass and getting all the notes in the glissandos clean and clear. Part B is supposed to be a free solo part. You can of course play it as written but don’t hesitate to improvise your own solo if you like.

I’ve dedicated the piece to Ole Martin Thomassen, a very fine jazz guitarist who teaches at the same school as me.

Here's a fresh copy of the PDF file. The original was broken a few years ago and I was away from the forum at that time so I didn't notice until now.

[Mod note: Thanks, corrupted file now replaced.]
