Music for Guitar Ensemble: Introduction
This section of the DOS Amigos Homepage contains music for guitar ensembles in various line-ups, which are:
- Guitar Trio.
- Guitar Quartet.
- Guitar and Voice.
- Guitar and Flute
As a service to guitar players all over the world, we'll put the sheet music of some duo pieces on this site in portable Document Format (PDF). We'll limit ourselves to the pieces which are Public Domain.
The side menu provides you with access into the ensemble music list, which is a table which enables you to view the titles and to select the music. Selection has two options:
- Play/Read: Play the music and read the sheet music.
- Play: Play the music only, the score is not available due to copyright restrictions.
On the music pages you will options to show the sheet music (if available) or to return to the genre menu. Additionally you will find the media player to play back the music. Concerning playback, I complied with the Netiquette, you will have to press the Play button to listen to the music.
Please Note! The music that you can play on this site comes from a MP3 file which has been generated from the raw sheet music. It sounds the way, a robot would play it, with little extra features which actually would have turned the sound into music. No dynamics, no expression, no feeling. Just consider the playback as a very cold impression of the piece. Remember that the guy or gal who is going to make music from the score, well, that’s you guitarists, singers and flautists! Never forget that and don’t let the MP3 robot scare away or fool you!
Well, just a last remark to finish this page: the "engraving" of the sheet music is sheer hand work, i.e. input note by note and chord by chord. Just like word processing and text writing, there might be "textual" errors in the score. From my experience as a writer I know that quite a lot of errors will be apparent after the quality control and the publication, no matter how well you have checked the material.
So if you might find some errors in the sheet music, please report them to me. The quality of the sheet music on this site will improve if I get the possibility to correct the writing errors. If you find an error, please email the title of the relevant piece, its composer and the sequence number of the measure in which the error occurred. If you know the correction, please include it in the mail as well. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance and Happy Playing!
