Rating: 5 Accurate interpretation by  * VSM MEMBER * on February 2021
True to the original score but quite a difficult piece to master
Rating: 5 Good ideas by on August 2018
When a i mad, i play guitar and that music is beautifull, my soul stay full of good ideas, thanks a lot.
Rating: 4 Pretty Piece by on March 2016
The piece is beautiful, but it isn't exactly "easy guitar". It starts becoming somewhat difficult for less experienced players on the second page. My son's teacher believes it goes to about a grade 7 or 8 level at that point.
Rating: 5 Joy to Play by on March 2012
This piece of music is and will always be a timeless favourite for the expert intermediate and beginner musician.
Rating: 5 OK for a beginner...with a teacher by on March 2012
I found somme of the fingering difficult (I'm a beginner) and my instructor had to tell me how to interpret 9/8 time.

I enjoy trying this piece
Rating: 5 I love this song by on August 2007
Although mostly for personal reasons, such as it being the first complete piece I played in a concert, this is truly a happy but spiritual song that moves all around me when I play it.
I dont know if it's Jesus, but it IS a Joy for all men and women, I beleive. By the way, I purchased this because my teacher gave it to me years ago and I lost it, and this sheet was exactly as I remembered it!
