Moonlight Sonata is a beautiful piece by Ludwig van Beethoven. Originally for piano, I arranged this for solo guitar. The original key is in C-sharp minor and this arrangement is in A minor. You can see the full video at my guitar school.
I just finished an arrangement of the beautiful first movement by Beethoven. Tough arrangement to make because on the piano you have two hands to work with and on the guitar you only have one hand that frets notes!
This is an easy arrangement of the main theme from the funeral march (Piano Sonata No. 2) by Chopin. You can learn the rest of it at my guitar school

Here is the famous Bourree in E minor by J.S. Bach. You can learn this note-for-note at my website. Just check out my guitar school by clicking here.
Here is a teaching video I put together of the B minor etude (Segovia #5) by Fernando Sor. Sor was a wonderful composer and this piece presents certain challenges for the beginner and intermediate level guitarist. Here are the details:
B minor chord and the right hand pattern (0:00)
mm. 1-8 (0:58)
mm. 9-16 (4:01)
mm. 17-24 (6:01)
mm. 25-32 (8:03)
mm. 33-40 (11:05)
mm. 41-end (11:59)

Possibly my most favorite song, ever, of all-time. I love the version by The Animals. Who doesn’t?? Recently I have been listening to Bob Dylan’s version of the song which, I must say, is amazing. I have made a couple arrangements for solo guitar. It can be found in my Easy Arrangements, Vol. 1. You can listen to that arrangement here:
I have also made longer version that is a touch more difficult. It begins by playing the theme slowly…
The theme then moves to the bass…
Then to the upper voice…
Then I speed it up. First in triplets…
and for the finale I switch it to strumming…
Here is me performing the full arrangement in concert a few weeks ago…
The full arrangement…
The arrangement is available here.
