Welcome to the Music Page.
The purpose of this page is to make available the written music of guitar composers and arrangers who have agreed to publish here. Currently these offerings are in common internet formats. For example, sound files are provided in MP3 format, and scores are provided as PDF files. You will need Adobe Acrobat in order to open the PDF files. The pages for the composers below contain some large files. Depending on your browser and plug-in settings, the sound files on these pages may load when the pages load. Some pages contain multiple sound files that are over 1MB large, so those with low-bandwidth connections should configure their browsers to avoid this.
José Antonio (Ñico) Rojas Beoto On November 4, 2003, we were contacted by Cuban guitarist Ñico Rojas, who offered us two pieces to share within the society. Later discussions with this charming, 82-year-old gentleman led to an agreement where we would publish these pieces on our website, so we are proud to present them here!

Dave Rogers Dave Rogers was a long time resident of Ashland, Oregon, before moving to Eugene to complete work on his Masters Degree in Musicology at the University of Oregon. He now makes his home in Eugene. His Masters thesis was on the life and music of the great Irish harper/composer, Turlough O’Carolan. Here, Dave offers us two of his arrangements for classical guitar.
Liz Vesecky Spring in southern Oregon can be frustrating, beginning with unusually warm, sunny weather in March, and then settling in for cloudy, rainy weather off and on until true spring returns just before it gets hot. “Slow Spring Blues,” by Liz Vesecky, was inspired by this capricious season. It is the third piece she has written for the guitar and was premiered by her teacher, Joseph Thompson, for the Jefferson Classical Guitar Society, of which she is a member.
