Muziekuitgeverij Van Teeseling
A Dutch Homepage. This publisher has a catalogue with scores for many instruments and instrumental combinations. They published three volumes of arrangements for flute and guitar by Mark. The books Down by the Sally Gardens (English folk songs), Conselhos (Brazilian modinhas) and El Amor y La Muerte (Catalan folk songs) are available in the music shops
Jean Francois Delcamp of the Association Bibliotheque de la Guitare Classique keeps a comprehensive site for guitar music, including links to home pages of guitar ensembles and a nice collection of scores in PDf format. Note that the availability of some scores depend on the frequency at which you visit the site as a subscriber.
Thorlaksson’s Guitar School
A well know site with a huge amount of scores for solo guitar, guitar duo and guitar ensembles, most in high quality PDf format.
Duo Niet In Het Zwart
This is the site of the duo Bobby Rootveld (guitar and percussion) and Sanna van Elst (recorders of all kinds). Duo Niet In Het Zwart translates as Duo Not in Black, which refers to the fact that you will not meet them on stage in the traditional black suit. They merge their music with other forms of arts, like paintings and theatre shows.
A site which is dedicated to Renaissance and Baroque music for lute and guitar. It includes a nice collection of scores in high quality PDf and Sibelius Scorch format. Also take a look at the very instructive narratives with the pieces: they offer useful background information about the composers and the pieces themselves.

An interesting site for classical guitarists that want to master the tremolo technique. Henk Olden uses his extensive experience with Flamenco music. Inspired by the music by the flamenco guitarist Sabicas (Agustín Castellón Campos) he lived in Spain where he studied Flamenco in Granada. The web site provides information about his workshops and his book Understanding Flamenco Guitar for Classical Guitarists. Additionally, the site shows various examples and studies/exercises for tremolo technique.
Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Literary Works Trust
The web site of the Trust for the heirs of Marin Zimmer Bradley (1930 -1999). For me, this fantasy writer is mainly known from the Avalon books, in which she describes an own version of the Arthurian Legends. I liked the stories, which attempted to view these legends from a female perspective.
Ursula Leguin’s Web Site
The web site of fantasy writer Ursula K. Leguin. Her Earthsea books (the four of them) were a great example for me because of her intuitive style with much hidden wisdom. After reading the Earthsea quartet with Ged’s adventures and the impressing elaboration of Tenar’s character, I started thinking about writing fantasy myself. Earthsea was but a small portion of what she wrote, she added more fantasy, SF, short stories and poetry.
