Sandy Shalk

Guitarist


Welcome to my website where I share my obsession with arranging, performing, and listening to fingerstyle guitar music. I enjoy arranging Celtic, jazz, and folk tunes for acoustic guitar often in alternate tunings (with a particular love of Dadgad, Open G, and CGDGAD) and standard tuning.

NEWS!

  • I've been working on a couple of books with El McMeen the past couple of months. It's been a wonderful experience. I love the way El plays fingerstyle. He's achieved international acclaim as a fingerstylist. With his leadership, our project took flight and we've completed two books of fingerstyle arrangements--including guitar information, anecdotes, and analysis. It's been a remarkable experience!
      1. The Glory of CGDGAD Tuning: Music to Method
      2. New Directions in Open G Tuning.
  • Still grateful to Stefan Grossman for producing three DVDs of my arrangements for Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop. It was very cool working with a guitar legend! The arrangements are now available as single song downloads on the Guitar Workshop website. (see my Shop tab)

  • I've been uploading some DADGAD jazz arrangements to Sheet Music Plus (SMP Press). It's been a great outlet for making available single arrangements.
