    tThe following albums and Custom Songbooks  are available in fingerstyle tab, standard notation, and midi on one CD.  These songs will open in either a Mac or PC web browser without your needing to be online. They open to a 'home page' that has links to a page for each song, where there are links to each feature. 

      Click Here     to view a sample score; Click Here to hear a midi of the same score (All The Things You Are)

    You get files for printing (Adobe .pdf  and .tif files) and files for reading on the computer (.gif files) and a midi recording of each song that will play on your computer's media player, or in any sequencer, many of which you can download online for free!  Each title also include midis and notation for an improvised chorus, and a 'minus one' recording!  No further purchase is necessary to run the songbook, but there are additional features available if you can run a .seq file.  (These additional features are regrettably available only to PC users and are described in the next paragraph.)

    ...With Power Trax

    Also enclosed is a .SEQ file, which will run on PC in POWER TRAX PRO AUDIO.  In addition to printing attractive tab/notation charts and playing music, this program has a light up tablature, notation and guitar neck screen.  The songs may be played back on this screen  for learning at any speed, or one note or chord at a time in either direction, controlled by the computer keyboard.  A segment of any size may also be looped at any speed to facilitate learning. 

    The program is also a full-blown multitrack recorder with hundreds of other features for making a personal computer serve as a complete recording studio, including creating your own CD's or MP3's from the program.

    To view a sample display screen, click here. You will have to purchase POWER TRAX PRO AUDIO from for $29.95 to make use of the .SEQ file.  The program is an extremely powerful and complete recording program.  The chart reading feature used here is only  several of hundreds of recording features.  Although my material will run in Power Trax, I'm not affiliated with the company, so you'll need to acquire the program from their website, the link noted abovePower Trax is for PC users only, but you don't need it to access the printing viewing and playback features on your Mac or PC!

    ...Or Without!

    All you need is your Mac or PC to print charts, hear midi's on your media player or sequencer and view charts on your computer!



    These CD's have files for hearing, reading and printing music on a PC or Mac.  Special options are available with purchase of POWER TRAX PRO AUDIO aviailable to PC users as a download for $29.95 from PG MUSIC, but not necessary to use these CD's.


    BUILD YOUR OWN SONGBOOK!! CUSTOM SOLO FINGERSTYLE JAZZ ARRANGEMENTS at $1.50 per title! (Minimum order of 4 songs, please!)

    Variations on these may be heard on my Audio pages

    Select any four or more for each album from the titles below, or your choice of another tune, if you have a lead sheet you can forward. These arrangements generally make use of more of the guitar neck, and deal less with open strings and positions below the fifth fret - they are of professional quality, and may be performed as written or embellished in numerous ways to suit the user.  Many feature simultaneous walking bass, chords and melody! However, the demand on the player is not excessive.  If you know how to make barre chords, you can do these. They are harder to come up with than to learn how to play!

    Other titles are available, so if you don't see the song you want, ask! The Songbook CDR's  include chord notation and tablature with  interesting jazz reharmonizations in easy-to-read charts in addition to midi files.  Jazz and Standard arrangments include improvised choruses and "minus one" tracks for study or performance in addition to the melody arrangement.  These are of professional quality, designed to sound complete, like an arrangement for piano, without excessive demands on the players' abilities.  Of course, they may be opened on a PC as a .SEQ file in Power Trax for more in-depth analysis (scrolling light-up guitar fingerboard and tab/notation, etc.) if you own or buy the program (about $29.95)

    Don't forget to add $1.50  to any order going outside the U.S.A. for a protective case for your CDR 
    (and the extra postage it requires)  by clicking the button at the top of the Songlist!  We've had shipping damage on international orders, and this is the best way to keep prices low as possible and still ensure that your order arrives undamaged!  Of course, I'll ship any order with a protective/storage case.  If you want one, too - just click on the button and it will be packaged that way automatically.  Clif 

    TThanks for all your inquiries!  I have had a lot of requests for tunes on the list below, and I'm working as fast as I can to make them available.  Since I want to continue to offer improvised passages with both midi and printing and viewing files and the Minus One midis, it takes a bit more time for each selection.  Thanks a million for your support and all that positive feedback!!  -Clif Kuplen, March 22, 2002

Hundreds of pages, illustrations and midi.  Voicings and Inversions, Chord Substitution, Reharmonization, Linear Development, How To Improvise, Motific development for bebop improvisation, Scales and drop voicings for the entire guitar, pick or fingerstyle.

This is a miniature website that opens on PC or Mac on or offline. The CDR  includes three main sites and a supplemental site with navigational links to cross referenced material.  All notation includes chord symbols, standard notation with tab underneath.  The notation examples and many of the multicolor fretboard illustrations will play the illustrated example on your computer's soundcard in midi.

The pages include a  Main Page, which contains mainly theoretical material beginning with the major scale, its derived chords, their voicings and inversions, these in chord scales, all with played notational examples.  This continues through altered scales, and their application singly and in combination  to typical jazz chord progressions. What scales, what chords, in any key and any position.

The second page, is entitled How to Improvise, and contains specific instructions on development of linear facility and developing a 'jazz sound'  through development of motifs.  

These begin with lines and phrases to play over major sounds, then over minor sounds and an extensive collection of altered seventh  bop motivic phrases, both linear and fingerstyle plus linear (you can play just the top line, as these are rendered in bop phrasing at varying tempos) covering all common chord progressions in all positions on guitar.  This page is linked to the main page for purposes of cross reference.

the third page is a 'wired' version of my treatise On Chords Scales and Progressions available here at the site.  This one is linked to the other pages wherever I though a particular  example from the other pages would be helpful  or a little more specific information would be desired.

Finally, a short essay reflecting on some of the things that have been helpful in my musical journey.

Here's a small excerpt from a page with some graphic and sound excerpts from the CD.  CLICK HERE

Everything is viewable and printable - there are about 500 illustrations and midi files, and the printed size is well over a hundred pages - this is designed to be a reference and ongoing study for years.
