"Nardis" Arrangement

    It's been a very long time since I posted anything on this blog. I got a new guitar about a month and a half ago and just finally put it down to write a new post, so here it is. This one's going to be short and sweet. I have been working on some solo guitar arrangements of Real Book tunes, and I wanted to share with you one I did for "Nardis" by Miles Davis. 

     I also just got Sibelius, which is a music notation program. I figured writing out this arrangement would be good practice for using the software, and it was. I learned a good bit of keyboard shortcuts and such. Anyway, here is the arrangement. Also note that much of this is played at or above the 12th fret, so using a standard acoustic guitar without a cutaway will prove to be extremely difficult and force you to contort your hand in ways I wouldn't recommend.
