The pdf scores on this page are all for sale at low prices. To purchase, email me at and use the same email address to send me the money via PayPal. I will email you the pdf score asap, usually the same day. [I used to use an automatic download service, but they went to an over-priced subscription service which was not worth it].

NB The “more info” links could take you to a soundfile or a video, or textual information.

Please “Be Good” – these files are for your eyes only, but do send your friends a link to this page. Support independent musicians! I’ve lost count of the amount of hours I’ve spent researching, arranging, typesetting, and in many cases recording these pieces.

    I am so enjoying my Scott Tremblay machete, as well as Volume 1 of your Machete Tab Book! I look forward to volume 2, but I also wonder if you might publish a general folk songs of Portugal book as well. I am a singer and would love to sing and accompany myself on the machete.
    Thank you so much for your wonderful work!
