Now I'm on the lookout for more of that sound. Or similar. Are there any composers with free music listed on this site who I should explore? Or can anyone recommend some books - intermediate level, no Tab. Just standard notation. I love buying books, but would prefer not to buy any with Tab.
I would recommend you this one:
Solostücke für Gitarre Tango Samba Rumba Bossa - Nova - latin america von Gerald Schwertberger von Doblinger (1975)
Thanks very much. I've now bought it on your recommendation.
Hi, it is rather easy to medium level, but some of the pieces are very nice and good resource for teaching also. The main thing is always to get the right accentuation and make it good sounding and for that the level is not so important, and if they are easier you can concentrated on that. I like a lot Nostalgia, Bossa Nova Breeze and the Bossa Nova estudy and there are other interesting pieces. Augustin Barrios has also some medium and lower level composition and some are very nice - the Stover edition are organized by levels and I think Vol I is the easiest. Tema Triste, Valsa Sem Nome and Sentimento from Badan Powell are also very beautiful pieces and not extremely difficult.
