Has anyone run across a reduction for solo guitar of the first movement of the Arajuanez? Thanks, Bill

Do you mean orchestra part and guitar part all on one guitar? Man, that would be hard!

I was thinking of an arrangement which captures the overall feel, but for solo guitar. It would definitely be a reduction/treatment and probably one of those guilty pleasures we only play in the privacy of our own company.

The only person I know of who has done such an arrangement is Remi Boucher.

And not to start anything, but, for me personally, I think "reduction" is indeed the word for this—despite Boucher's obvious skill and artistry.

I remember once I was listening to variations on a theme by Mozart and I remember thinking " the day I can play that I'll be a guitar master! " years later I learned it and boy was I wrong. . Watching this video confirms I'm nowhere near mastering the guitar. the path continues (:
