Music for Solo Guitar

These extended works - three suites and a set of variations - have their origins in my simple love for the guitar. Although I listen to piano music more than to guitar music (I like to say that I have "pianist envy"), I have always loved the feel and the sound of the guitar above all else. My primary influences for the three suites can be summarized as "ABC": Autumn by pianist George Winston, Breakfast in the Field by guitarist Michael Hedges, and Close to the Edge by progressive rock band Yes. To the variations can be added the influence of Bach, especially his Goldberg Variations. Although I have not yet recorded these pieces in any form, you can find sheet music below.
