This collection of pieces is a nostalgic reminder of the bygone days of goodtime, bouncing, happy music. Some of these solo guitar settings of old standards are transcriptions (arrangements that are as close as possible to the original piano settings), but most are arranged by the author in a free swing or stride style. These familiar tunes are fun to play and use a variety of idioms that were used in the days of swing and stride playing. The harmonies and lines bring out the fullest richness of guitar sounds that many love to hear. Each tune is presented in standard notation and tablature with performance notes.
