This edition of sixteen of Schubert’s songs with guitar accompaniments, edited by Thomas F. Heck, presents some of Schubert’s best-known songs with guitar accompaniments based on those that were published in Vienna in Schubert’s lifetime.
With an introduction and English translations of the German words.

a’, b’, c’, and so on up to g’: this means from the a which is on the second space of the treble stave, up to the g which is on the space just above the treble stave.
a”, b”, c”, and so on: this means from the a which is on the line immediately above the treble stave, upwards.
