Good luck.

If I may suggest a good book to start with, see if you can find _Early
Music for Recorder_ by Robin De Smet.  ( www.musicsales.com  ISBN
0-7119-0499-5 )

The back cover blurb: "This outstanding collection of recorder solos spans
the years from the 10th to the 16th Centuries.  It contains forty-seven
famous airs and dances."  More to the pint, De Smet arranged almost all of
them with guitar chords.
