Digital Guitar Archive - online database of digital sheet music, community forums, print sheet music


September 14, 2005 As I am spending more time developing my Digital Guitar Archive site I will not be updating guitar-related items on this site anymore. My plans include creating a web-based database which will allow for searches across multiple guitar data sources (including the Rischel collection). I have removed the download for the RIBS2 program because of this.

July 12, 2005 I am developing a new site through my new company Digital Guitar Archive. It is coming online in the next few weeks.

April 10, 2005 RIBS2 download program for Rischel & Birket-Smith online catalog updated.

April 7, 2005 Added Mertz and Padovec MIDI and MP3 files to my Classical Guitar MIDI Library.

March 7, 2005 Added information about the Andrew Salama Papers at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

January 28, 2005 Marco Aurelio Zani de Ferranti collection at University of Sydney added to library listings.

January 17, 2005 Complete list of composers in Nakano Collection and Rischel & Birket-Smith collection added.

September 20, 2004 A listing of 19 chamber music works with guitar added to Spain page of library listings based on article on Editions Orphée website.

September 19, 2004 Satellite page updated. All Chinese channels from AMC4 have moved to G13.

August 27, 2004 The RIBS2 program has been updated with fixed data. The August 11 update had a number of manuscript entries which were wrong. The collection.xls file included in the download lists the fixed entires. There are still about 10 files missing from the Kongelige Bibliothek site and I will add those to the download utility once they are available.

August 23, 2004 I have added a list of works, compiled by Jun Sugawara, possibly in the Morishige Takei collection.

Two libraries listings for Spain added, courtesy of Ron Purcell.


August 11, 2004 I have rescanned the Japanese articles on Segovia and they are now higher quality and smaller size.

RIBS2 has been updated again. I have added about 75 new manuscripts.


July 15, 2004 The RIBS2 program for downloading online files from the Rischel & Birket-Smith collection of guitar music has been updated with the latest manuscript files.

June 28, 2004 Information on the Yoshimasa Wada collection of guitar music in the Free Library of Philadelphia has been added.

June 25, 2004 I have added a page on how to watch Chinese satellite television.

Manuscripts from the Rischel&Birket-Smith Collection are going up on the web now. It is taking some time for all of them to get up there, but I will begin adding them to my RIBS download software soon.


April 13, 2004 Library listings, in the music section, has been updated. Each country now has its own page.

September 30, 2003 I have reworked my site to hopefully make everything easier to find and easier on the eyes.
