Arrangements/Compositions for 8-string guitar
(Tuning B-D-E-A-D-G-B-E except where otherwise noted)

These original arrangements and compositions are free to the interested visitor. To encourage online collegiality I now offer all my intellectual property gratis. I have also uploaded them in (editable) musescore format to the 8-string guitar forum I started at https://musescore.com/groups/8-string-guitar, which I will be updating more often than this page. Please join this group if you play 8-string or simply have an interest in learning more about it. (Actually, considering that musescore automatically generates .pdf everytime I update, don't even bother downloading from this page, but do avail yourself of the capability to make contributions here if you are so moved).

Click on each title for a .pdf download. As I prepare pieces for performance I inevitably add refinements, so check for updates as marked. Note that these pages are optimized for use with ForScore (or another iPad sheet music display app).

However much the music turns out to be worth to you, I encourage you to donate through the PayPal button below. Whatever I receive beyond the site hosting fees will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders or Alight (f.k.a The American Refugee Committee). These relief organizations were chosen for their low overhead and selfless service to this suffering world.
