    Both the performance and the arrangement are not just beautiful, but magical as they transport us into new worlds that only the lyricism of the guitar can do. Thank you for sharing your magnificent art. Ricardo

    Love your arrangement of Claire de Lune by C. Debussy for classical guitar but not sure if your are selling this PDF to down load or is a sheet music you ship to customers. Also I do not like pay pal and have a reputable debit card, wonder if payment can be done this way.

    I appreciate your time and your help.

    Don’t be disappointed if you spend a lot of time learning this and it doesn’t sound like you want it to at the end.
    If you play it on steel string it’s not the same and if you play in a room with deadened sound it’s also not the same. You need to prepare a little bit to make it sound nice.

    …..that said, it still sounds very nice and the satisfaction you get from playing it through for the first time is FUCKING EXHILARATING 😀

    you exceeded the guitar’s capability…

    Bravo! I bet Debussy would be real proud. I wish I had that kind of talent… Still 14, still working my way to achieve it. Loved it, keep on with the good work!

  20. Maffoo

    The thing about an arrangement like this is that, although the actual “shapes” / fingering of the notes are not that impossible, the real beauty of it comes from the expression and (I think it’s called) rubato in the playing. Just makes it so beautiful and powerful. Great playing.

    At 40 I decided to pick up the guitar. My instructor asked me what my goal was in music. I told him I wanted to play this song. He gave me a really funny look. Now I know why. I might be able to play this when I am 60 lol. Great job on this beautiful piece. 

  24. Victor

    Hi, I’m really interested in this lovely arrangement. Is the fingering mentioned on the score?

    The most extroardinary guitar version of Clair de Lune I have ever heard . So unbelievably faithful to the piano version. I don’t think that this piece can exist as a solo guitar version in any other way than this way . Thank you for this gift!

    Perfection, so delicately and precisely well-played so the full feeling comes through in the softest way… The most beautiful guitar version of Clair de Lune I have ever heard.

  28. john pierson

    The beauty and otherworldly elements of this composition are so great to hear on a classical guitar! I love piano and there are so many great performances of this song played on piano. I am a guitar player who studied classical guitar in college. But I have since then strayed into many types of other music. Hearing this performance really touched my nascent love of this song and classical music. What a joy to hear this! Bravo!

    My husband is a really incredible guitarist and can memorize pieces on the instrument very quickly… So once, when we were teens, I had had a particularly bad day and couldn’t sleep that night. So, knowing how much I love classical music, he learned this piece and sat next to my bed playing it all night until I fell asleep. I can’t listen to it without getting a little teary-eyed now.

    Ahhhhhhh!!!! Tab just gets in the way. I would much prefer standard notation alone with fingering indications. Is this piece available in that format?

    • LAGA Support

      Hi Ken,

      Thanks for your message. Yes, the PDF file also comes with a standard notation-only format.

    Very excited to purchase this arrangement for instant download. I was taken aback when I realized there was tab on each staff. For me it just gets in the way. But it turns out the exclusively standard notation version followed the tab version in the same file. I can’t wait to dig in.

    This is a tremendous transcription, thank you so much — I learned it on a steel string w/fingerpicks and it also sounds quite good with a strat and a little chorus (no kidding)

    Hi, incredible playing just want to make sure that it does come in the form of tabs with numbers and strings?
    the crossing out and adding as *new* in the description isn’t very clear.

    • LAGA Support

      Hi Tim,

      Yes, it does.

    The best arrangement for this incredible beautiful piece of music. Just bought the sheet music ( tabs) and I should say it’s top quality. Can’t wait to finish the current song I’m learning and to start learning this piece of art. Thanks LAGA for making real music available for everyone !

    I have played this tune on piano for years. I have been looking for a guitar version that is true to the piano score. After a long search this one seems to be the one I am looking for. I purchased it a couple of days ago and I’m really looking forward to working through this tune. It is a beautiful arrangement!
