Influences, 21 Intermediate Etudes for Guitar

"These are some of the finest etudes I've ever played for intermediate level players." Douglas Seth USA.

"This is a FANTASTIC book!! I love playing every one of the selections here. Thank you, John."  -James Seaberry, USA.

"I find your collection of etudes musically rewarding as they sound more modern and cool, which differs from Sor's etudes. These are certainly more interesting to play than merely pedagogical etudes beginners often work on." -Yasuhiro Shimizu, Japan.

A beautiful performance of Etude No. 5 "Sophie's Lullaby" by the excellent guitarist Nina Rideout.

Standard notation only. Listen to any or all of the etudes here.
