We are delighted to announce that the first of two new publications from GMI – Guitar & Music Institute has been released. Titled Italian Theorbo Music, this book has been created by virtuoso early music performer James Akers and is now available to buy.
The book has been over six months in development and has gone through numerous designs, but we think that if you are interested in classical guitar, you’ll get so much from this new 131 page publication.
