Six suites of progressive difficulty. Most pieces are one or two pages long but are intended to be played as mini-suites of four or more sections, giving the advancing student an opportunity to develop longer concentration and a broader sense of musical form.

I. Garcia Lorca’s Riddle 1. Seis Doncellas Bailan 0:43 2. Suenos de Ayer 0:38 3. Doncellas Abrazadas 0:46 4. Redonda 0:55 — exploring Spanish style harmonies and textures.
II. Friend of the Sand Winds The Tower 0:37 6. Angel on the Road 0:53 7. A Silence 1:28 8. Sand Winds 1:35 — simple melody; fast ⅞ rhythms and simple shifting chords.
III. Orientale five continuous sections with ostinato basses, pizzicato, and strumming
IV. May Day Suite; four movements in a classical style
V. Single String Etudes II six pieces exploiting the melodic possibilities of shifting up and down one string while accompaniments are played on others; teaches shifting without complicated chords
VI. Good Winds for Dionisio Original theme and 11 variations, a homage to Aguado in classical style. Starts very easy and gets progressively more advanced with tremolo section, repeated im chords, fast arpeggios, etc.
