The American Guitar Collection

In 19th Century America, guitarists, composers and publishers were all very busy producing guitar sheet music of all kinds. From classical compositions, to jigs, reels, songs, arrangements and even transcriptions from operas for solo guitar. We are now making much of this often forgotten American sheet music for guitar
available again.

The music of two interesting guitarists in the collections:
1. Vahdah Olcott-Bickford (October 17, 1885 – May 18, 1980) was an American astrologer and guitarist, composer, arranger and teacher, sometimes known as "the Grand Lady of the Guitar".

2. Justin Holland an African American who was one of the first American classical guitarists, and he was a teacher and a composer.
Included also are two unique collections of what may be the earliest arrangements for guitar of Sousa marches, and Stephen Fosters own arrangements of his classic songs for guitar accompaniment.
This page also has large collections of old sheet music and instruction books for banjo, mandolin and ukulele.

This experimental music has been developed over three decades using a variety of special music generating software programs. Some of the more primitive programs and early experiments go back as far as the early "DOS" operating system computers... all the way to custom modern music software and artificial intelligence (AI) software developed and/or adapted here at Amaranth Publishing.
