New Avett Brothers Arrangements Page

The Avett Brothers Emotionalism logoI’ve just created a special page on this site for my guitar arrangements of songs by The Avett Brothers, including “Shame,” “I Would Be Sad” and “Down with the Shine.” I’ve got about 16 or 17 songs uploaded a this point, with another 8 or 10 I’m hoping to upload in the coming days.

No band has inspired me to play so much, and I can credit the Avett Brothers’ music with helping me to improve my guitar playing dramatically. I hope my arrangements will be helpful for others Avett fan guitarists. Check out the page here.
