All the favorites are here, ranging from sentimental ballads such as Little Buttercup, Willow, Tit-Willow and There Grew a Little Flower, to more up-tempo patter type pieces such as Oh! A Private Buffoon, Kind Sir You Cannot Have the Heart and A Policemans Lot. The aim has been to provide both a useful teaching resource and a light-hearted alternative to the more serious music of the classical guitar repertoire. All the pieces lend themselves extremely well to the common idiomatic textures of the classical guitar. A variety of melody and accompaniment styles are employed, including block chords, arpeggio patterns and passages of double-stopped thirds and sixths.

A number of the pieces are in easy first position format, while others explore the common higher positions. The standard guitar keys are utilized (C, G, D, A, E) but there are occasional more challenging temporary modulations to difficult keys, such as E flat major. There are also instances of drop-D tuning, which is often required in classical guitar playing.
