Product Description

Written by Sting, the lead singer and bass player of The Police, "Message In A Bottle" was released as the lead single from the band's second album and soon became their first #1 hit on the UK charts. The song showcased the band's reggae/post-punk style, and it is now a classic rock staple, making it onto Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time. The massive popularity of this song means that this arrangement for violin & cello duet is a guaranteed success in your gig books, and you're sure to get your audience singing along! This arrangement maintains the driving rock beat, reggae-based groove, melodic intensity, and sing-along-able choruses of the original, making it just as much fun to play as it is to listen to. Great for parties, corporate events, solo & ensemble contests, or just to play for fun, this chart is rated Advanced Intermediate for a LOT of interesting syncopated rhythms that go by pretty fast.
