"Guitar for 2" is a colorful mix of pieces for two guitars: rocky, bluesy, groovy tunes; world music (Reggae, Flamenco, Tango), and traditionals packed into a new outfit. I have tried to transfer different playing techniques to the classical guitar. But of course these pieces can also be played with other types of guitar. The level of difficulty ranges from easy to intermediate.
The enclosed CD offers the possibility to hear the original duo version and to play along with the accompaniment tracks (tuning note: concert a = 440 Hz). For some tunes both guitar voices are available as play along version.
(...) A publication that is relevant and enjoyable to use on your own as it is in a tutorial setting is a rare thing indeed but wonderfully achieved here by Richard Graf in his book of duos, Guitar for Two. Entertaining titles of original works include Mission Possible (an entertaining spoof version of Mission Impossible), and Reggae for Carmen (an amusing mix of Stevie Wonder’s Masterblaster and the Habañera from Carmen) as well as other more traditional arrangement of tunes such as Danny Boy and House of the Rising Sun. The relatively simple top line combined with the more detailed accompaniment offers a range of challenges which will make this book of use throughout the easy to intermediate stages of learning the guitar. A CD included allowing accompanied performance of the pieces at home. Although the CD is performed on steel-strung guitars this book is nevertheless also perfectly relevant for classical guitarists. Graf has pitched his writing to provide challenging yet idiosyncratic pieces within a framework of highly entertaining styles. (...) Music Teacher 06/2003
