SKU: A0.1431102

Composed by H. Ashworth-Hope. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Film/TV. Score and Parts. 30 pages. Derek Hasted #1011573. Published by Derek Hasted (A0.1431102).

For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.

Derek Hasted writes "This theme, from the UK BBC TV Children’s Programme “Blue Peter” has instant appeal to anyone who has watched that show. It makes a wonderful item for a concert, with a Rondo form and a spirited feel that’s easy to lock together.

The TV show has tried different versions over the years, including one by Mike Oldfield, but my arrangement is based the full-length version as played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

I’ve changed the key to D major so that everything fits on the neck of the guitar and uses familiar notes.
Guitar 4 is tuned to 6=D to add more depth. An alternative Guitar 4 part in bass clef is also supplied, and here normal tuning is used.

The original theme is fast. To be honest, it’s very fast indeed. But it works just fine on guitar when played a little slower.

The standard is intermediate when played at a modest speed, but Guitar 1 will need an advanced intermediate player if the tempo is pushed upwards.

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 lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
