Product Description

IF (David Gates/Bread) GUITAR DUET
For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.

Derek Hasted writes "This simple but charming melody has a guitar accompaniment that uses a clever mixture of stopped and open strings to create a campanella effect. Many of the arrangements that are out there dont have same notes as the original, and therefore some of the cleverness and simplicity of the original gets lost.

This arrangement uses the same shapes as the original, and theres tablature as well so that you can easily see that almost all the measures in the music have the same right hand fingering, despite the mix of open and stopped strings making the score look much more complex than it actually is!

Set in the same key as the original, the tune does go rather high but its not difficult to play and it makes for much greater clarity than playing down the neck.

As the piece progresses, both players have a go at the tune and also the accompaniment...

Each guitar part is provided in score (which will easily fit on a music stand) and "score + tab" which is a bit more bulky.

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!"

This is one of a large and growing range of accessible ensembles from experienced arranger Derek Hasted, and is supplied as full score and parts. Derek's website at www.derek-hasted.co.uk/smp lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
