Richard Yates Classical Guitar Transcriptions

On this web site you will find high quality music scores for classical guitar and viola da gamba. All of the music that you can download from here is free – I ask only that you also take a look at the page which describes my published transcriptions. The scores are downloaded to your computer immediately as a file that can be viewed and printed with Acrobat Reader. To help you select music, you may first listen to free MIDI sound files of some of the pieces.

I am no longer playing guitar and am now regularly looking for material that can be judiciously adapted to the viola da gamba. While the gamba music here will remain, new scores will be added to a new website just for that instrument: If you have suggestions, requests or feedback, send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you.
