Gregg is working hard on his guitar chamber music arrangements. Clear Note is doing a great job of publishing them. Just recently, Clear Note put out five new guitar chamber music arrangements by Gregg.  These arrangements include works by Mahler, Chabrier, Mozart, Vivaldi and a set of pieces by three different Italian composers.  The works have been arranged for different instrumental combinations, including voice, guitar and chamber ensemble, violin and guitar, cello and guitar and two guitars. The level of difficulty ranges from intermediate to advanced.  Gregg has included some interesting background material about the composer(s) and the pieces in each of the publications.
