Tinwhistler Favorite Fingerstyle music books? (6) Favorite Fingerstyle music books? 20 Aug 98

OK--one last thread from me...

Does anyone have any recommendations for fingerstyle music books or anthologies? Intermediate level, and any style music. I want some new pieces to play, but it seems to be hit or miss. Music is too expensive to be spending money on the wrong things!

I have a couple Stefan Grossman books, and although I like his arrangements and think he is a great guitarist, I think he WAY overestimates the playing ability of his readers. What he calls beginning is really intermediate, and intermediate is advanced!

I have (and like) Glenn Weiser's Music of O'Carolan for Acoustic Guitar, Kenny Sultan's Acoustic Blues Guitar. Any other recomendations?

Thanks, Sue
