still, a work in progress need feedback and a name for the piece I'm open to ideas I'm not going to get offended if you say it's not that good
I just finished another piece for guitar solo, and found this instruments able to play rather complex structure when its strings are arranged manually. I cannot play this instrument, what I did is just to keep the position of the left hand in a small range. Is this right?
Also, I still have some questions about the string arrangement on a very fast part. For example, in bars 152-170 in this piece, is using different strings alternately helpful/necessary to maintain the speed?
Thanks in advance, Lukas
I’m curious about what works best for you.
Hi, I recently completed two movementa of a classical suite that I am currently composing for the String Orchestra. I intend to play it in my school's String Ensemble in the future. Any feedback and thoughts are deeply appreciated. Thank you!
I am arranging Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for a string quartet. I might add a double bass if I think it is necessary, but so far, no issues with it being a quartet, at least not in the first and second movements. Now I'm arranging the Presto Agitato and as if it wasn't hard enough with the need to smoothly transition from the viola to the violin in those sixteenths, if I keep the interval relationship, the notes are going to be too high. I could get away with this octave displacement in the previous 2 movements(With the first movement, I basically did this octave displacement for the entire bass line to fit it into the cello), but now, the octaves the sixteenths are in are crucial to getting the right sound out of the Presto Agitato.
There are 2 things I can think of as to how to get the Presto Agitato to sound right, one of which keeps the instrumentation, and another of which keeps the original octaves.
Option 1: Add Double Bass
This would keep the original octaves, and I could have it play the bass line and have the sixteenths start in the cello and rise upwards to the viola and second violin.
Option 2: Move bass line to Viola for first measure of each arpeggio run
This would keep the instrumentation I have going of a string quartet and for everything except the bass line, the original octaves would be kept as well.
Which one of these 2 options do you think would be better? Any other suggestions?
NOTE: I'm only asking about the arpeggio runs, the scales and Alberti bass are easier to arrange.

I arrange simple but effective numbers for small drum and bugle corps. I haven't been able to figure out how to upload my scores to "give back" for some of the scores I've downloaded to build on. I'd appreciate any advice
Hi, I am arranging church hymns traditionally played on piano, for classical guitar. I have just finished arranging "Rockingham" by Edward Miller (1790), which is a favourite tune for a number of hymns. Please feel free to check it out:
