This free arrangement of the famous Canarios by Gapsar Sanz has a part suitable for every level of player. Perfect for the multi-level guitar ensemble, guitar class, and guitar festival orchestra: part I employs notes through the 7th position, part II plays notes in 1st and 2nd positions, part III is a rhythm guitar part, part IV is played in 1st position, part V can be played on a traditional or contra guitar. The hemiola or constant alternation between duple and triple meters is the main challenge of the work, and an enticing characteristic of the piece.

Simple Sample of Gifts is a great piece for a large guitar orchestra or guitar quintet. Set in a theme and variation form, this piece explores  extended techniques such as harmonics, rasgeuado, and golpe. Perfect for the multi-level group, Guitar I is the most difficult and employs notes in the higher positions and more challenging techniques, Guitar II carries the main melody and plays notes almost exclusively in first position. Guitar III employs the first 3 strings of the guitar and open chords. Guitar IV is a rhythm guitar part with chords symbols and extended percussion techniques. Guitar V can be played on a traditional guitar or on a contra (bass) guitar.
