Getting (back) into composing for CG

Post by Andy Culpepper » Wed May 31, 2017 8:13 pm

Hi all,
I haven't really composed much for classical guitar in 10-12 years, but sometimes have a little flurry of creativity in that space. I'm going to use this thread to upload my compositions and all comments are welcome. This one I wrote over the last few days. I have a bad habit of recording before I get everything perfectly under my fingers but here it is:

I've finished writing another short piece now and hopefully will have it recorded and uploaded in a couple of days.

Bonus questions, since I am a luthier: can anyone guess what woods the guitar is made of?

Another short one. You can probably hear the Bach influence.
Very concise but I think it says what it needs to say.

Sounds like you've got lots of ideas bubbling all over there Andy! Sorry not going to guess the woods but please keep it up ...
