This third arrangement for guitar duet completes the Opus 59 set of Chopin's Mazurkas.

I have arranged rather than transcribed the "Mazurka in A flat" taking into account the range and characteristics of the guitar! It is therefore now in E major, and as a result some accidentals required respelling.

Guitar 1 is required to access some notes at fret 16 on the E string and one at 17 on the B but otherwise range is in the comfortable part of the neck! These days so many classical guitarists use cutaway instruments but I thought it feasible for a good player on a traditional instrument!

Guitar 2 is a little easier, but has a few moments where the chords need preparation for stretches. TAB parts are available as well as notation and I have edited the TAB and played it through so they should work well.
