Definition Guitar Canon

Guitar Canon gives us the overview in literature for solo guitar.  The canon consists of the 50 most influential and iconic works composed for guitar, original, or transcriptions that have proven themselves over time as being standard works for the classic solo repertoire for guitar.


Obviously, this canon is a snapshot from the perspective of the five promoters who have wanted to lay down a basis only for the discussion. Guitar music develops in such a way that the canon can be updated every 5 years. And what about the inevitable (and interesting) polemic. The choice of the following 50 Frames will inspire a heated debate in the guitar scene and that’s where we are looking for, so hope you do not feel shy to be part of that discussion. Come and join!
