Fretted Friends Music specialises in hard to find music publications for many of the world's unique, unusual and diverse fretted instruments. 

For years the major international publishing groups have concentrated almost exclusively on high volume, low risk titles for the guitar, piano, mandolin, ukulele and banjo.

Here at FFM, we believe we've gone a long way to redress the balance if your interest lies outside the mainstream. With titles covering the charango, irish bouzouki, tenor guitar, greek bouzouki, mandola, mandocello, Puerto Rican cuatro, Venezuelan cuatro, octave mandolin, ukulele, mandolin, baritone ukulele, cavaquinho, tenor banjo, irish tenor banjo, plectrum banjo, bluegrass banjo, tres cubano and others, we have a wide range of publications to suit your needs. We also have an ever expanding range of new titles, so why not bookmark us and drop by to see the latest additions to the Fretted Friends family of music publications!
