The Musician's Job is to Convey Emotion
Funerals and solemn occasions fulfill two essential purposes: a farewell and a celebration of a life. Music speaks directly to the heart. The right music, well played, will enhance the celebration of a life.
The following musical suggestions, from the classical, rock, and pop genres, can provide a focus for the emotional needs of the moment. In my experience, they work well.
As for special requests, it is important to note that not all music is effective on a solo guitar; however, an extensive library is available, so please ask.
