What sheet music did you buy last and why?

4 Piezas Cristalinas by Maximo Diego Pujol.

I heard Daniel Nistico playing Verde Alma on Youtube. He played it really well.

Did a search and bought a copy.

Haha! :lol:

Looking at the list in that thread George, I realised I need to keep my mouth shut. I have pieces by many of the composers / publishers on there!

Autumn Leaves. After watching Yenne Lee's version on Guitar Salon International's YouTube Channel i was determined to learn it. I'm not quite at that level yet but I hope to be one day.

Cheers, Dave

What: Annette Kruisbrink's "Access Permitted" and "Knock before you enter".
Why: not inaccessible for me, and suitable as study material with a CG teacher while I actually want to learn to play "blues and stuff".

Before that I bought a number of online video courses that come with printable scores/tabs (a.o. Mike Dowling's Uptown Blues/American Roots Guitar and Lightning Hopkins transcriptions taught by Tom Feldmann) as well as a few methods from the Hal Leonard collection (a.o. Tony Rice's Bluegrass Guitar).
I actually should be learning how to play that kind of music from just a sequence of chords as "they" apparently do but have no way how to approach that; I'm hoping that learning to play written-out examples is one way...

Per-Olov Kindgren's arrangement of, "I Know a Lark's Nest" (jeg ved en laerkerede), by Carl Neilsen. I listened to him play it on his website, and I thought it was a pretty tune......mellow and slow. He rated it as a level 2 difficulty....on a scale of 1 to 5....so it should be moderately easy to play.

Beethoven's complete piano sonatas and Bach's English Suites. Now I'm set for life as far as sheet music is concerned. :lol:

I picked up Hendrix "Smash Hits" guitar score. I wanted to learn Hey Joe and I did. I of course use a pick on this. Next up: The Wind Cries Mary.

I bought Per-Olov Kindgren's arrangement of the Scottish folk song, "Barbara Allen." It is one page, relatively easy to play, and it was only $1, but I really don't like the tune very much, so I've already tossed it aside. .....oh, well?

Hmm, for this kind of thing you can also use the Chordify app, provided there's a Youtube recording of the song you're after and you're capable of interpreting it from just the chord progression.

The Diran Alexanian edition of Bach's cello suites. It was recommended, and may help not only with the cello as I slowly get to that level but may also provide some insight into arranging some of the movements on my own for the guitar.
