Some of the guitar music that we have played ...

Here is an overview of the guitar music that we have played recently.  It will give you an idea of the wide range of pieces periods and instruments that have had a hearing.   (If you want to look at our archives, we have separate pages for the first half of 2012 , for the second half of 2012 and for 2013 ... more to come, no doubt)

Maybe you would like to add to the list ... and it is perfectly ok if you pay something that has already been played.  In fact every now and again we have had the same piece played twice in the same session!
