Since its establishment in 1998, on this site you’ll find sheet music for classical guitar from Renaissance to Romantic. You can select the pieces from a menu, read its description, play it if you like and print the score. The statistics of the DOS Amigos Homepage and the various reactions I received show me that many guitarists like this score service.
If there are many pieces from the DOS Amigos Homepage that you like, you will have to print a lot. In the end you are stuck with a loose-leaf system or even a pile of print-outs without system. Oh dear, if you drop the binder and all sheets fall out! Without table of contents and page numbers it will be a tedious task to order everything again in the right sequence.
For this reason, I will offer an extra service on the DOS Amigos Homepage. You can order with me parts from the DOS Amigos Homepage Collection. At the moment, the service is there for Holland and the Eurozone countries. I do not support the option of world-wide shipping yet, because of the shipping cost.
The DOS Amigos Homepage Collection has nine parts at the moment, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical I, Classical II, Classial III, Romantic I and Romantic II. Additionally, there is a special about Johann Kaspar Mertz, called Night at the Opera and Nachtviole (Dame’s Violet)
A part that is dedicated to guitar duo and guitar ensemble music is still in progress.
Features of all parts of the collection are:
- Wire-O binding, i.e. spiral binding. You can open the book without problems on a music stand. Browsing during playing is easy without the effect of pages folding back. Plastic end leaves provide for some protection of the book.
- Clear setting of the music in the quality that you are used to when downloading from the DOS Amigos Homepage. All music is scored in Sibelius, one of the best score editors on the market. This software produces a beautiful layout of the scores.
- Practical breakdown of the pieces. You can play with a minimum of page turns.
- Professional level edition, you have the opportunity to determine your own dynamics and fingering without being distracted by existing notation.
Within this section of the site, you will find samples of the books, a price list and information about the ordering procedure.
