  • Finger-style Folk-guitar Instrumentals

    These scores are something I always wanted to have when I was figerpicking steel-strungguitars in the the folk clubs of London in the late 1960s.

    Included are instrumentals for solo guitar, all in standard tuning, including a couple of myown, but mostly from the early albums of Davey Graham, Stefan Grossman, Bert Janschand John Renbourn. Everyone trying to play the folk guitar must own those albums !not to mention those by Al Stewart, John Martyn, Roy Harper, Dando Shaft, theIncredible String Band . . . it was a moment of great creative flowering.

    They played often with a Capo on second or third fret, and mostly in triplet-rhythm,which I have notated in 12/16 and 9/16 to make the beats clearer by grouping them underthe same beam. If anyone makes a tablature edition of these pieces, please let me know.

    Davey Graham was playing jazz standards - tune, chords and bass - just as a piano triocould. And not so much by brute virtuosity, as by intelligence: by letting the arrangementgrow out from the guitar. Just consult Cry Me a River on youtube to see how naturallythe playing lies on Daveys six strings.

    Stefan Grossman came in from the US, having studied not just in New York with theReverend Gary Davis, but also down south with Mississippi John Hurt, Son House, SkipJames, Mississippi Fred McDowell - so carrying in him a huge, rich tradition.

    Bert Jansch was exploring the sound of alternating between an open string and the samenote fingered on the next lower string, letting both vibrate. He later described TheWheel as "the sort of thing most guitarists have up their sleeves, little bits and piecesthey throw away or forget". This splicing together of repeated motifs (little bits) wasalso much used in progressive rock, and in the classical tradition it is associated withRussian music - The Rite of Spring for example.

    John Renbourns first two albums were among my most treasured possessions.

    Included are: Angi, iconic and indispensible, and Thelonius Monks Blue Monk, fromDavey Grahams first album, and Cry Me a River by Arthur Hamilton as played byDavey in "Hound Dogs and Bach Addicts: the guitar craze", made by Ken Russell in1959 for BBC TVs Monitor.

    Matesa and Powder Rag and Lena Anne from Stefan Grossmans 1972 live album.

    Alices Wonderland and Veronica and Smokey River (the intro, and the title, refer toJim Halls playing on The Train and the River with the Jimmy Giuffre trio), from BertJanschs first album, and The Wheel from his second album

    Plainsong from John Renbourns first album, and Day at the Seaside from his second

    Whisper Not by Benny Golson and The Entertainer by Scott Joplin, arranged bymyself, and The London Rag written by myself, in the late 1960s.
