about

A second collection of original contemporary fingerstyle guitar compositions, in Dsus4 (DADGAD, and baritone variants) and in Dsus2 (DADEAE) tunings modified by using partial capos. The info links for each track provide details about the genesis and title of each tune, many of them pandemic-inspired (in case you didn't get the album title reference), along with the year written and the guitar played/recorded.

I really do hope that you enjoy the tunes...

Transcriptions (notation/TAB) are available for all tracks. Any single track, packages of any group of tracks, or all 16 (142pp book with 17 pieces) can be ordered. All transcriptions include a HQ 320 kbps MP3 (or other formats) download of tracks. Please contact me for (really cheap) pricing.
