Bittersweet Symphony is a single taken from the 1997 album Urban Hymns.  The song become an iconic anthem of the 1990’s making this an excellent and original concert or encore item.  

The repeated motif heard in the track was taken as a sample from an orchestral arrangement of the Rolling Stones classic ‘The Last Time’ by The Andrew Oldham Orchestra. Years of legal wrangling over copyright followed the single’s huge success. In 2019, following the death of their former manager, Keith Richards and Mick Jagger returned all rights of authorship to The Verve. 

This arrangement gives equal melodic interest to all players. A video of the arrangement will be uploaded before the end of May 2023.  

You can find a huge range of solo and chamber music for guitar in all styles at 
I hope you enjoy performing Bittersweet Symphony as much as I enjoyed arranging it.
