Spanish Romance
Spanish Romance is a very well known classical guitar solo. It’s played here on a classical guitar but it works just as well as on a steel string acoustic guitar. If you’ve been through Charanga’s beginner Guitar Coach you’ll be familiar with a simple arrangement of this tune. Here it’s in its original form and is more technically demanding.

Danny Boy
The tune to Danny Boy is actually a traditional melody entitled Londonderry Air or Air of County Derry. The origins of the melody are disputed but it first appeared in print as early as 1855. The Danny Boy lyric written by Fred Weatherly was combined with the traditional tune in 1913.

To prepare for the solo there are three arpeggio exercises using the chords of G, C and Em. These are a good way to build up your technique.

Swing Low
Swing Low Sweet Chariot is a spiritual that has been arranged here for solo guitar. Spirituals emerged from the experience of enslaved African Americans, and are an important part of a rich musical tradition in America. The song has become associated with the England national rugby team and is regularly sung at matches by supporters.

The technique this arrangement employs builds on the fingerstyle skills used in O Tannenbaum. Before you begin, an exercise will help you to work on your fingerstyle skills at the same time as helping you become familiar with some of the fret hand chord shapes that the solo uses.

The Water Is Wide
The Water is Wide is a traditional ballad though to have begun life as a Scottish song called O Waly Waly. Its beautiful melody and lyrics have prompted many recordings over the years by among others Pete Seeger and Sarah Brightman. The tune was also used extensively in the 1994 film The River Wild.

This solo guitar arrangement in the key of D uses dropped D tuning. The solo may look pretty straightforward but it’s not that easy to play well. Before starting work on it you’ll find a couple of lessons that will help you prepare for the solo. These lessons look at a technique of sliding between notes and at the fret hand chord sequence used in the song.
