For some time now, I found pleasure again in digging out my classical guitar literature. I really enjoy the stuff that I had to (or rather, was forced to) play when I took up the instrument. I did not value it back then. As an ignorant kid, I just wanted to rock. But you get wiser, in my case very slowly. Particularly when it comes to melody lines, orchestration and harmony transitions one can learn so much from the old masters. However, for the „non-score-reading“ guitar players this door ist still locked, as most of the material is only available in standard notation.
I can read standard notation pretty well, but I completely understand everyone who is frightened off by those small black dots.
And, I am so sick of that stupid „tab vs. score“ discussion. For string instruments, I cannot see a single disadvantage of tablature against the scholar way of writing music. As a pro, there might be no way around being able to read music the traditional way (unless you are a genius that can pick up everything by ear). But I assume there are not so many pros visiting this website.
For all of you who would like to get a little into classical guitar, without footrest or strange seating positions, I made up this little sub-category with some very approachable tab transcriptions of music that stood the test of time.
More good news: These tabs come without any stupid performance notes. Just the plain tabs downloadable below. Any background info is wide available on the web.
Have fun. Be sure you will.
