This collection will help spark an interest in the development of an American repertoire for the classical guitar. Traditional Scottish and Irish tunes were transformed by the African rhythms of banjo players, which in turn influenced popular music and led to ragtime, jazz and blues. The amount of folk music in America is staggering. The nineteenth century gave birth to many unique American styles and its songs are an important part of our musical heritage. Even today, quite a few of the tunes in this collection will seem very familiar. Written primarily in standard notation, the exceptions being those tunes in altered tunings which logically appear in tablature only.

James Edwards discovered the guitar at the age of fourteen, exploring folk, jazz, and pop styles before finding his true musical love, the classical guitar. Inspired by Christopher Parkening--with whom he later studied--James also worked with Ray Reussner, one of Andres Segovia's most devoted pupils. Other teachers have included Manuel Barrueco and Michael Lorimer. James plays renaissance lute as well and has studied with Donna Curry, Toyohiko Satoh, and Jurgen Hubscher. In addition to the traditional classical guitar repertoire, James performs his own vibrant arrangements of Handel, Mozart, Puccini, Debussy, Brahms, and others. He has also created a unique American repertoire with his treatments of well-known works by Gershwin, Joplin, and Copland, along with original compositions blending the classical style with his early influences of folk and jazz.
