What sheet music did you buy last and why?

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

"My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose," arranged by David Jaggs. I got on here this morning to post my last purchase, and 'cedartop' had posted that he had just purchased David Jaggs' arrangement of, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I checked out his website, and liked several of the arrangements, but they were too advanced for me, so I purchased the "easiest" one.

Per-Olov Kindgren's arrangement of, "Suite in D-Minor," by Robert de Visee. A couple of days ago, I downloaded "Book Three" from Simon Powis' Classical Guitar Corner, and started working on it. The first piece is,"Prelude" from, "Suite in D-Minor," and I really like it, so I decided to tackle the entire suite. I already had the sheet music for a couple of the pieces, but decided to order the whole thing. It was $8, and is 11 pages.

It was "home work", but i am really enjoying listening to and studying this piece! ;)

Something easy, a nice arrangement of Marie Elena. Made very popular by the Los Indios Tabajaras in the late 50's early 60s.

I just got the Score to Queen's recording It's Late. There are many guitar tracks and over-dubs on the record and it has all the guitar parts. I know it's not classical, but I need to rock sometimes, and Queen always seems to be the ticket for me.

I once had that feeling! :( I have looked at the Bagatelles on occasion, but that's as far as it has gone. :oops:

"Loneliness Comes Out at Night," by Per-Olov Kindgren. It's a new piece, and I watched the video of him playing it on his website today, and I liked it. .....and he rates it as a 2-3 (on a scale of 1-5 in difficulty).....which is not too difficult.

Guitar arrangements for the Hungarian Dances by Brahms. Now I need to make the time to learn them.
The Jozsef Eotvos transcription? Not that I know of any other ... enjoy - maybe start with no. 5.
DE (EN) [FR] ... and no, not interested in a GUI for tar, but in music.

Last piece I actually purchased was a simplified version of Cavatina as I find the full version too difficult give the restrictions in my movement due to arthritis in my knuckles

I purchased it from Mike Herberts site http://www.6-string-videos.com/mike/. I assume you can still get it there. If not let me know sure something can be arranged.
