An exceptional rock ballad for young bands that sounds much harder than it is. No solos but all of the sections get a chance to shine and the written piano part contains some tasty licks that really add the crowning touch. Playable with limited instrumentation and includes a Guitar Performance Help Sheet. A perfect choice for middle school and jr. high jazz ensembles to learn the legato style. Can't Be Beat!
