Best Sites for Free Sheet Music for Classical Guitar
These are the top ten free sheetmusic sites for classical guitar. They’re not in any specific order as each site has something very different to offer, but collectively they’ll provide you with years and years of free enjoyment as you wade through the free sheet music available.
1. Dirks Guitar world provides sheet music together with midis which allows you to browse through the collection and pick your favourites. The site also has free tabs for all the sheet music available. I’ve played through some of the scores and must say that while the fingering is generally great, there are a few circumstances where I don’t agree with the tab fingering so I would treat the tabs with care. The site provides free sheet music for classical guitar in three different file formats (TablEdit, PDF, midi) and as standard notation and tablature. The sheet music is sorted by composer and is divided into three sections: Classical Guitar Music, Latin/ South American Music and Popular Transcriptions for the guitar. An additional section provides original compositions.
2. The classical guitar school provides masses of material for study and performance. It is definitely a site worth looking at.
3. Guitarpress focuses on classical guitar sheet music produced before 1923. The music is organized by author. There is no search button so you’ll need to search for a particular author and scroll through to check if the score is stored on this site. On the plus side, it contains lots of scores and worth it.
4. Jan-Olof Eriksson-Classical Guitar provides a number of free scores in pdf.
5. 8 Notes has a small collection of 50 pieces of free sheet music. It’s a really nice collection, the big negative is that you need to subscribe before you can access any of the material.
6. Fernando Sor L’Integral Complete Works provides all the original scores published by Fernando Sor. The webmaster is committed to providing scores that are certified copies of the original Fernando Sor scores.
7. Music for the nation is managed by the Library of Congress, consists of over 47,000 pieces of sheet music registered for copyright during the years 1870 to 1885. It includes music for piano, guitar and other instruments. The site contains a useful search button which you can use to isolate the guitar music.
8. Free scores s has 20 000+ free scores available with a sample available for classical guitar.
9. David’s Classical Guitar Site contains all the Villa Lobos Etudes and many other pieces standard to the classical guitar such as Tarrega’s Tango and Recuerdos de la Alhambra. Worth a look.
10. Yates Guitar is run by Richard Yates's, the author of a Classical Guitar book published by Mel Bay. He has done some beautiful transcriptions and these are freely available here on this site.
