GOD ONLY KNOWS (Beach Boys) - GUITAR QUARTET/large ensemble

For Classical or Acoustic Guitar

Derek Hasted writes "This is a lovely piece that will appeal to audiences of all ages - they’ll be humming it on the way home!

I've arranged this to suit as many guitar ensembles as possible - I've changed the key a little to make the shapes in this piece familiar ones and to make best use of the neck. My arrangement will suit a mixed ability ensemble from early intermediate to intermediate. 

Guitar 4 has the bottom string tuned down to D.

I've arranged this in compound time instead of swing rhythm, and I've included triplet dotted crotchets (¼ notes) instead of three plain crotchets, so that the rhythm is easy to read.
The piece finishes with a final chord instead of a fade to nothing, as it usually works better in concert. But if you have a conductor who can help with the fade, you could carry on playing the repeating section at the end until the sound has vanished.

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.
