In my conversations with guitarists over the years I have mentioned a web site that I thought was well known but maybe not as much as I thought. The site that I am talking about his the Eythorsson Guitar School web. Based in Iceland, Eythorsson offers an incredible amount of free classical guitar music for people to download. From studies to sonatas, ensembles to duets, there is something for all to enjoy. The catch is that the music has to be in the public domain for it to be on the web and free. You will find works of Sor, Bach, Carcassi, Scarlatti, Tarrega, etc… I have dabbled with Classical throughout my trials as a guitarist and I have found they studies and methods have helped a great deal, especially with working on the independence of my thumb and learning new voices for my writing. I haven’t worked on too many of the solo pieces but I did download some of the Scarlatti sontas and they were arranged wonderfully. Too bad my playing couldn’t do them justice.
I have been using this site as resource for as long as I can remember and am surprised how much it has grown over the years to have such a library of music. Check it out and see what you think.
