Tango for Guitar

by Brian Chambouleyron
At the beginning of the 20th century, the tango was born in Buenos Aires, and it was a style that spread dramatically all over the world. Tango is a dance, a rhythm and a characteristic musical color. The 13 solos in this book were written especially for guitar by award-winning composers Jorge Polanuer and Brian Chambouleyron, and each tune is performed on the CD by Brian, one of the most popular guitarists in Buenos Aires. The solos are presented in different degrees of complexity – tune up with the tuning notes on the CD and play along with the tangos, milangos, waltzes and even a guitar duet. The songs are also repeated on the CD without the lead for you to play the solo part.
