The Passion of Tango
Tango is one of the most passionate of musical genres in which the guitar has played a central role from its earliest years. Like so many other genres, the guitar was originally more commonly used as a way of accompanying a melody carried by vocalists or other lead instruments. In more recent times the classical guitar has proved to be a popular medium to perform modern tango compositions. This publication contains carefully arranged guitar scores and tablature to some of the earliest and most loved tangos of all time. This title however does not contain flamenco tangos which themselves are unrelated to the Argentinian tangos and its various branches. All the scores within 'The Passion of Tango' have been arranged from the earliest available recordings so as to authentically capture the spirit of the tango.
This book is currently available both as a paperback and as a pdf download through the links provided and is a suitable study for both reading and non reading guitarists from intermediate proficiency to professional performers.
