Final Words
The Classical Guitar Collection is intended for intermediate to Advance Guitarist. Some unique bach pieces not featured in other bach books. I did find some pieces to be lacking a note or two. Also of all my 3 bach books. (Bach for Guitar and J.S.Bach for Acoustic Guitar) this one is the most difficult for me. Its good that there is tablature and left hand fingering for aid.
