By Los Lobos. By Richard Valenzuela. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Pop,Standards. Score and Parts. 25 pages. Derek Hasted #727987. Published by Derek Hasted (A0.1127360).

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

Derek Hasted writes "This piece requires no introduction, except to say that it makes a fantastic concert piece for a school ensemble or equally, as a crowd-pleasing encore for an adult ensemble.

My quartet arrangement is early intermediate. The top line as written is intermediate, but there are a few optional “ossia” bars that make the line early intermediate. There’s also an optional bass line for conventional guitar or bass guitar and that’s supplied in treble and bass clefs. The bass line will suit a beginner, but the piece also works fine without it. There is an “improvisation” section in the middle with call and response lines to add interest for players and audience alike.

In a large ensemble it works well to have both top parts plus bass and octave bass lines playing - it makes a massive wall of sound!

This arrangement was a firm favourite with the Hampshire Guitar Orchestra (HAGO) and their audiences.

I hope you enjoy this piece as much as HAGO did!"

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.
