Hi! I'm a self-taught guitarist who started with the typical steel-string folk repertoire, but I gradually moved into nylon-string classical and jazz territory. Few have developed the jazz solo technique on nylon-stringed guitar as much as the "Brazilian Masters." The arrangements in this book were written by Brian Hodel, and it is adapted for the solo guitarist who wants to play Brazilian music. The arrangements are advanced for someone coming from a tablature background, and require at least a working knowledge of how to read music. However, I CANNOT sight-read, at least not yet. However, after having really pushed myself to read read read and learn learn learn these arrangements, using widely accessible youtube videos of other guitarists (troubleclef, jeffrysteele) who have performed these arrangments to help me on matters of technique and voicing, I've made amazing progress in my playing and musical ability. The arrangements are also beautiful. For such a cheap price, this is a great collection of music.
If you are a beginning jazz soloist, get this to challenge yourself, even if you can't read music. If you're serious about it, you'll learn as you go. Success cheaply won is cheaply valued, so get to work!
If you are an experienced nylon-string guitarist, these may not be terribly challenging, but they are still beautiful arrangements and great fun to play.
