This page of the website contains classical music compositions written specifically for the SOLO guitar or arranged for it. The collection is regularly updated.
Solo, as is well-known, means «alone» or «on one’s own». Therefore, any composition of this subsection is adopted for producing a full sound by only one guitar without the involvement of voice or other musical instruments.
Guitar Solo is a kind of activity that allows a guitar player to produce the full sound of a composition without the involvement of voice or other musical instruments. The full sound here shall be considered as an ability to produce three basic components of music – melody, harmony and rhythm. In this case, the famous cliché, «The guitar is a little orchestra,» should be understood as the simultaneous extraction of sound in several flows, each of which has its own function (e.g. pop-rock bands where each guitar has its own playing part: the first guitar produces the melody; the second guitar produces bass, and the third guitar produces harmony). This can only be possible if you extract the sound by means of fingers – the classical way of extracting the sound. Therefore, sheet music for the classical guitar and sheet music for guitar solo are considered one and the same.
In this subsection, you may find a wide range of compositions of classical music specifically written and arranged for the guitar. All sheet music samples, except the ones for my own (Andrey Nosov’s) arrangements from the rubric «Sheet Music + Tabs», for which I request a small payment, are available for listening, viewing and downloading.
All guitar compositions of this subsection are time-tested, have excellent artistic properties, and deserve the greatest attention from guitar players. The level of difficulty of the compositions is medium or higher. So if you are a beginner, you should probably refer to the compositions that are studied and analysed within the training program (see Section «Guitar Lessons»). For now, my sheet music library is at your disposal. I wish you a pleasant performance, my dear colleagues!
Classical music fills the soul with emotion, passion, excitement, and… gives us a feeling of stability. What else can be more enduring than classical compositions that have been played for hundreds of years? In this section, I present to you guitar sheet music for such compositions. You will also find sheet music for more recent compositions that have already gained well-deserved recognition.
The younger generation (of listeners, not guitar players) has a habit of scorning classical compositions, calling them boring and even disgusting. But it seems they don’t know that classical music is just music that has stood the test of time. Now here’s the chance for you to show young people what classical music is all about and win them over with an exquisite melody, diversity of harmony and rhythm. If they say that it’s “cool,» there is some hope that they will see classical compositions in a different light. This also means there will be more good people on our planet.
Guitar sheet music from the section «Classical Music» can be DOWNLOADED FOR FREE. The compositions are also available for preview and listening.
Tablature is absent in the compositions presented on this page. But the problem can be solved. Write to me, the email address you can find in «Contacts».
