Thirty pieces of easy to moderate difficulty for solo guitar. Most are 1/2 to a full page long and are intended as evocative, colorful additions to a more rigorous collection of progressive pieces. Teaches techniques such as portamento, rest stroke with the thumb, simple one-string melodies with open string accompaniment, etc. It is my intention in these works to catch a moment, an inspiration, a breath, a character, to create a moment for my students and friends to enjoy. What more can we do? They are not strictly pedagogical, but are intended for the intermediate student to have technically easy access to a musical goal.
