Michael Hedges/Rhythm, Sonority, Silence was originally released in 1995 and, given the enduring influence of Michael Hedges’ music, Stropes Editions, Ltd. is pleased to announce the reissue of this groundbreaking volume. The acclaim it received upon first release established its place as a seminal document that created a new standard for printed music for fingerstyle guitar.

— Acoustic Guitar

“One of the most extraordinary music folios we’ve seen, almost unrivaled in its art direction and printing and the fastidious attention to detail of its transcriptions.”

“A landmark achievement.”
