What sheet music did you buy last and why?

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

Just arrived today: Francisco Tarrega Collected Guitar Works: The Early Spanish Editions (Chanterelle edition). It's huge.

Why did I buy it? Because it was there! 8)

Cheers,

Bought a while ago but, Gnossiennes Nos. 1-4 and Gymnopedie No. 1 Adapted for 10-string guitar, arranged by Pierre Laniau.

I've loved these pieces for a while and I had the guitar around a year so justified it as my guitars birthday present :D

Now there's an idea I might be able to run with... Would a new companion guitar be a suitable gift for a current guitar?

Well, we (my wife and me) did not buy but got some sheet music from Stepan Rak. And wow, it's even hard to look at the mess of notes, reading them is almost impossible :D

Fernando Sor - "The Complete Studies for Guitar" (Matanya Ophee / Jan de Kloe), Edition Chanterelle im Allegra Musikverlag, Germany, reference ECH 0491.

Upon retirement, I restarted playing guitar in a sistematic way - a few hours every day - and Fernando Sor studies is a must, I believe.

As i am also approaching retirement i have just bought the same book to replace an old Tecla edition.
This edition has fingering suggestions, many revisions and also lies flat on the music stand.
Plenty to discover in previously untried studies.

I'm very much interested in any modern edition of this particular work of Carulli. Could you, then, please, be a bit more specific? Which edition is it? And where from did you buy it? I would very much appreciate your help.

A bit off topic: I often purchase e-books from Mel Bay, (including audio) but the Canadian dollar makes that an expensive purchase even with a % discount. Over the years I have, from various sources on-line, collected pdf sheet music, e-books, videos, mp3s, all in a computer folder, such that over the last 15 years I now have over 70 Gb of the stuff! Plus I have several "piles" of CG books collected over the last 40 years. I would love to pass it all on to an aspiring young CG student before my time is over. No one in my family is interested in the cg, yet.

Would you have any Parkenings pieces arranged by Rick Foster with notes and tabs, such as Jesu Juy of Mans Desiring, Sheep may safely graze, Sleepers awake or anything else that Rick Fister may have arranged? I am not looking for Fosters Hymns, but the above and other popular pieces.

One Canadian to another.

Guitar arrangements for the Hungarian Dances by Brahms. Now I need to make the time to learn them.

Per-Olov Kindgren's arrangement of, "Schonster Herr Jesu" The melody is a German Christmas Carol from the 1840's, and it's moderately easy to play.

A 14 piece Christmas Carols, Easy to Intermediate only. With Note, tab, chord and lyrics!
I always bought intermediate to advanced and unless I started in the Summer I would not get them done and I never started i the Summer!
I have little time to fit these in, but they will be fun and easy for me and my family including 2 young grandchildren even if we use just the chords.
