Hi Frank,

thank you for this list. Some years ago, during a forum server migration, many hundreds of scores were damaged,
and some of yours were affected too and could not be replaced, because no member offered a digital copy for replacement.
Now, that you are on board again, may I ask you to replace (repost) the following files?

Highland Echo (tab version)
Bach Suite BWV1007
In the Dark All Cats Are Blue (tab version)
Flower Power Rag (standard notation)

I knew about it but had to hear from Geoff how to do it. My old account was cancelled because I was away from the forum for a few years so I couldn't simply edit the original posts to replace the broken files.

I've also added two more titles, my transcription of Petzold's two minuets and an original composition featuring the crossed strings snare drum imitation effect.

I suppose I better uplaod them somewhere then. It's going to take a while. I have to review everything and write some meaningful descriptions. Even something as simple as replacing the old Musica Viva URL with my new blog in all the footers take ages.

Then I need to make some sort of recording of them so people can hear before buying. I have to do it the easy way for now - saving the FInale files as midis and converting to mp3. If anybody ever publish recordings of any of my music on YouTube or elsewhere, let me know and I'll link to them!

When it comes to my postings, you may want to think of them as crass commercialism. I need to sell some of my scores to keep starvation at bay and for that I have to show people what I have to offer. What better way than to post a few freebie teasers at the internet's foremost classical guitar forum? ;)

Thank you! :)

This is just the tip of the iceberg really. I'm still shifting through my old files, trying to sort them out. THey're spread across eight computers and five external harddisks so it's quite some work. I think the list include most of my music for solo classical (in a fairly broad sense) guitar but the ensemble music is still missing and although most of my original composition include guitar, the vast majority of my arrangements do not and are not relevant for this forum.
