Musix Music to Download

I’ve been writing music down for quite some time. Some of the pieces are original compositions, some are transcriptions from recordings, some are demonstrations of one technique or another. Many of the pieces have been published in one of my books, videos, or magazine articles or played on one the CDs I’ve recorded. Some have never been published before.

We’ll use this site to make many of them available to you in a downloadable and printable PDF file. Each will include standard notation, tablature, chord notation, and lyrics, if there are any. You may need to download a version of Adobe Acrobat, which is free, if your web browser does not support reading PDF files.

Over time we plan to make available a whole range of music from many styles. In fact, we’ll post samples of just about every book, video, and CD on the Musix web site plus pages from my own notebooks, tunes and techniques of interest, and a bunch of things that are just great fun to play. You know, this web site is probably a dangerous toy for me to have. It’s like my own personal magazine with no restraints on space! I’ve always wanted a practical way to share music and ideas and this may prove to be it! I’ve got a ton of great stuff I plan to post.
