I am an avid music listener, amateur performing classical guitarist, and former music critic (for the now defunct StarVox online zine). I primarily used to write about various forms of metal, but recently I am inclined to write about various forms of classical.

7-String Guitar Transcriptions

Most of my transcriptions were made with Lilypond and are missing some of my handwritten notes. I am including only the rendered PDFs below, but if you are truly interested in seeing the original Lilypond scores or want additional performance notes, please contact me.
