I have wanted to write this collection of solos for years. I grew up hearing my father and other great guitarists play wonderful solos on the plectrum guitar. Nowadays we don't use the term plectrum guitar . Instead, we call it flatpicking . However, flatpicking denotes bluegrass, country or perhaps Celtic guitar stylings. These solos come from a different stream, although they are influenced by a wide range of musical styles.

These concert pieces are meant to be played with a pick, although they certainly can be performed by a fingerstyle guitarist. The intent is not to showcase sparkling technique, instead they were composed to convey a palate of musical colors and moods. They offer the guitarist a wonderful opportunity for expression. Many are impressionistic in character. Some are musical reflections of thoughts, moods and emotions.
