Guitar Ensemble - Level 3 - Digital Download

SKU: A0.1161246

By The Beatles. By John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Pop. Score and Parts. 21 pages. Derek Hasted #761582. Published by Derek Hasted (A0.1161246).

For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.
Derek Hasted writes "Although this is not the most well-known Beatles Number, it’s certainly one of the most toe-tapping!
It will suit an Early Intermediate to Intermediate ensemble and Guitar 4 is provided in both treble and bass clefs to suit guitar, contra, bass guitar or double bass.
There’s a jaunty swing rhythm that sits atop a bouncy bass line. Staccato chords punch out a driving rhythm and there’s a countermelody I’ve added that brings a hint of Dixieland Jazz to the whole thing.
There are some X-headed notes that are where you need your silver hammer. If, like me, you don’t have a silver hammer, you might use something out of the cutlery drawer - it worked for me. If all else fails, a thump to the soundboard will at least jolt the audience into sitting upright…

I hope you enjoy performing this!"
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.
