The beautiful "Gymnopedie No. 1" (1888) by the French composer Erik Satie, original for piano, in my arrangement (in the original key) for classical guitar.

Thanks for the video! I enjoyed your arrangement. It does justice to the piano original, while sounds like a guitar piece. I think in its simpicity it's a rather demanding piece to play well, since every note is important!

Very interesting to hear your arrangement and compare it to mine. I learned a transcription by Carlos Barbosa Lima years ago and recently modified it to suit my seven string and fix a few errors. Thanks for posting this.
