Why do I need to learn how to arrange?
Guitar music only covers a small output of the total music created. Making arrangements for guitar (classical arrangements from other instruments, solo jazz arrangements, and fingerstyle arrangements) helps you play the music that you always wanted to play from another instrument. You can learn as much as you want to know for creating your own original arrangement. My book is designed for everyone in mind to help them create their own arrangements. Beginners can learn the basics of arranging for the guitar and get help to make their own arrangements. Others already familiar with arranging on guitar can learn the more idiomatic techniques of the guitar and make their arrangements easier to play on the guitar. There are also advanced topics that help arrangers refine their arrangements and take them to the next level.
