Extended Range Classical Guitar

The term "extended range classical guitar" simply means a nylon strung guitar with more than 6 strings. Any number of strings can be added but most commonly the maximum number of single strings on a guitar is 13. My current preference is 11 strings but I also enjoy playing guitars with more or fewer than 11 strings.


I play extended range and conventional classical guitar as a soloist and as part of ensembles. I provide music at events such as weddings and other special occasions.


I write solo and ensemble music exclusively for classical and extended range guitars.


I am a teacher of guitar and bass guitar, living in the North East of Scotland.
