Guitar Soundfont for Musescore

Just in case anyone else is looking for some decent
guitar sounds to use with Musescore, I have been playing
with some from https://sites.google.com/site/soundfonts4u/
and can recommend the Guitars-Universal-V1.5 soundfont.

Is it has a good selection of guitar types and playing techniques
covering acoustic, nylon, electric, jazz etc. and the sound quality is high.

It works with MS 2.3.2 so I presume it will also work with MS 3.

Christmas music for student group

I'm looking for simple (but not dumb!) arrangements for a group of traditional players of all ages and a range of skills. We are mostly a fiddle group, with 10 -12 fiddles, a couple of banjos, a piano and 1-2 guitars. We range in age from 10 to 85! I've been combing the internet and I've found a couple of things right here in musescore that look more interesting than the standard fare. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone. 

Check out my Mozart Arrangement

This is my first full Mozart arrangement. I plan to do multiple more(maybe even all 18 Mozart sonatas). But this is his Piano Sonata in C minor. All 3 movements are there. Here is the link if you want to listen to it:

I found it perfectly fit for a trio, so I arranged it for a string trio. As for the triple and quadruple stops in the rondo. I put in arpeggio signs and then immediately made them invisible. So it will look like chords, but it will sound arpeggiated, which is the way a violinist would actually play a triple or quadruple stop. 

Violinists, Cellists, Violists, I need your feedback. Did I write anything that is impossible? If so, what is it? I need to know so that I can improve this already great arrangement.
