The majority of the tangos included here belong to the Guardia Vieja era or are styled after them, as in the original tangos by Julio Sagreras and Justo Morales. These transcriptions and original compositions were mainly addressed to middle class guitar amateurs. Some of the pieces are technically accessible, clearly aimed at the student or beginner level, while others are more demanding, requiring an intermediate to advanced proficiency. Most of pieces in this volume are for guitar solo, with two pieces for a guitar duo, paginated comfortably to allow for direct reading by two guitarists. Even with the passage of time, the distinction of the tango’s heritage can provide diversion and delight whether played for one’s own enjoyment or for the entertainment of others.
