1000 Pages of Classical Guitar Transcriptions

Richard Yates was one one of the very first people to put quality guitar transcriptions online. Now he’s bundled them into a singe file for download.

Says Richard:

While most of these have been on my site for years, many have been added only recently.

The file is a package of pdf files. You might (or not) need to upgrade to the latest Acrobat Reader to view it properly. It is about 30MB so I suggest saving the file and then opening it rather than opening it directly from your browser.

If you visit Richard’s main site — — check out his playing of the famous Prelude in E Major by Bach. Beautiful!
