Here are the scores for the music we will be playing in the open ensemble session at the upcoming Guitar Society meeting on February 6th. Please download the scores ahead of the meeting, review which parts you would like to play, print them off and bring with you. I am delighted to point out that Zephyr is a piece written by Martin Erwig, one of our members, especially for the guitar ensemble!
If you can bring a music stand, that would be helpful too.
Threes Company Scores & Parts
If you want to play parts 3 or 4, Martin included a very helpful additional sheet that shows the chords for these parts. If your music reading skills are limited, but know chords, this is also a great way to join in!
I am very pleased to announce that local acoustic blues guitarist Adam Scramstad will be our featured artist for our upcoming meeting on February 6th. Adam has played for us before and is a great musician and a great performer. Come along and enjoy a great evening of guitar music.
