Content: Overview


Here you can download the sheet music and accompanying players’ guide for my guitar piece “Waterlight” in various formats. There is also a handy “Alternate Tunings” tool for Windows systems. Additionally, all of the files are included in a zipped compendium. The compendium is particularly useful as an alternative if there are problems in downloading any of the individual files on your system.

Content: Waterlight Guide


Each of these files is a printable (8 A4 pages) copy of the complete players’ guide to “Waterlight”. It is intended as a supplement to the sheet music.
The guide includes everything needed in order to learn how to play “Waterlight” from the sheet music. It includes chord diagrams, tablature, fingerings, embellishment techniques and sequenced exercises to assist development of the fingerstyle technique. All are fully explained.
As a study of alternate tunings, the guide also explains how the piece was developed using the tuning as a basis. This can provide a useful method of creating further guitar pieces in other tunings.
The document is available in MS Word/Office, Adobe PDF and Microsoft XPS formats.

The software was written by Brian K. Quade who holds the copyright. I was originally sent a copy for use on my website as part of a gesture of thanks for some online support regarding guitar effects that I provided for a Canadian studio.
