Classical & Instrumental Music
My repertoire of instrumental acoustic guitar arrangements - including some of the classical wedding standards, film score melodies, instrumental renditions of popular songs, and recently composed Celtic-style pieces - is an appropriate choice for wedding ceremonies, funeral and memorial services, or any event where you'd like a mellow vocal-free performance.
Use "Command-F" to quickly see if a song you're after is already in my repertoire.
Wedding clients: All of these make great wedding ceremony processionals and/or recessionals, and can be sped up or slowed down as needed.
