For Classical Guitar primarily - but also suits Acoustic Guitar or Electric Guitar

Derek Hasted writes "Rightly described as an astonishingly beautiful piece, this music from the film Local Hero actually features twice on the soundtrack album, in different keys with different solo instruments.

My arrangement for classical guitar exploits the soft tones of the nylon strings and works well at a slightly more modest pace compared to the original. I’ve taken the theme from the closing soundtrack version, where the melody is clear and powerful. Each player in the ensemble takes the lead part in turn, and my arrangement includes one or two little bits of Mark Knopfler’s quasi-improvised variations on the tune.

This enjoyable concert item has a wonderfully captivating melody that the audience will be humming all the way home... 

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!
