Bagatelle n.1 for Solo Guitar

Here is the Chart for my composition Bagatelle n.1 based on Hoagy Carmichael's "The Nearness of You"
Jazz · Classical · Solo guitar

This composition utilizes advanced reharmonization as well as contrapuntal techniques. It will help you improve your Fingerstyle playing and give you new ideas on how to use a Song you like as a basis for a new composition.
