The songs on this page were arranged by me for fingerstyle guitar. I did them with Tabledit software since it is an easy file to read. You can either purchase the Tabledit software or use their free Tabview program. Both are available through my "links" page. The advantage of using either of these programs is the ability to hear the song played at any speed. This makes it much easier if you are trying to learn a new song.

Please Read This First!

Because I have had so many e-mails complaining about difficulty opening these files, I would like to try give you the solution before you e-mail me. Many people comment that they double click on the file and only get a bunch of nonsense squares and lines. Not all browsers understand a TEF extention, and therefore try to open the file using notepad. This results in some unreadable nonsense. Sometimes the browser understands the extension if the program was installed after the user started using the particular browser. Even on my own computer, I use Firefox and I can't open the files online. With Windows Explorer I have no trouble opening them online. But without changing browsers, there is an easy solution to this problem. Simply right-click on the file and tell your computer to save the file to a location on your hard drive. Then open the file with the appropriate Tabledit program. Also, once it is on your hard drive, it is possible to double-click on the file from "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer" since the computer does recognize these extensions. This should solve the problem. 

Another point concerns the level of difficulty. These songs were all arranged for my students over a period of 40 years of teaching, so they are on a variety of levels. It has been suggested that I label each with their level of difficulty. As of this time I have not. The level of difficulty is often a matter of personal opinion. If you like a particular tune, give it a try. If it is too difficult, save it for a later time in your musical career.  Enjoy the arrangements. Feel free to contact me with comments or requests. Also, feel free to report errors or broken links. I am retired now and will take the time to answer you.
