Slow and lyrical blues in the style of David Gilmour.
Classical Gas (by Mason Williams, arr. by Tommy Emmanuel)
Here are some pieces in different styles, ranging from Classical (actually Baroque) to contemporary. I hope these will inspire my students to keep exploring new possibilities with the guitar.
"Mood for a Day" was a guitar solo written by Steve Howe of the prog-rock band "Yes".
The Gigue is from a suite by J. A. Logy, a contemporary of Bach.
"Black Water Side" is a Bert Jansch accompaniment to an old Irish folk tune (which Davey Graham adapted from "She Moves Through the Fair.") Jimmy Page later did a version with Led Zeppelin, which he called "Black Mountain Side."
