Early American Hymn Favorites for Classic Guitar
The ten-hymn selection (including among others Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing and How Firm a Foundation) largely avoids chordal style harmonization, but rather employs the open strings of the instrument in a creative way to make the melody and accompaniment sound rich, vibrant and easier to play. Most arrangements are in standard tuning (with occasional dropped D tuning) and include extensive fingerings.
