NOCTURNE (Secret Garden) - 3 GUITARS or LARGE ENSEMBLEFor Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.
Derek Hasted writes "This haunting piece (originally for voice, violin, piano and full orchestra) fits nicely onto 3 guitars (or a large ensemble), making a concert item that is accessible to intermediate players. It will provide a reflective and calm piece that the audience are sure to enjoy - its strangely familiar motif is both calm and reassuring in its flow.
Guitar 3 is tuned to ⑥=D, and the piece is set around arpeggios that are instantly familiar. There are a few barrés but these should not prove to be tiring or liable to buzz.
Guitars 2 and 3 sit nicely in second position, whereas Guitar 1 needs to go up the neck, and some position changes might be needed if you slur the ornamentation as indicated.
I have added a few dynamics to mimic the flow of the original, but feel free to add or alter to make the performance "yours".
The preview here is laid out to show you sections of both the part score and full score.
I hope you enjoy this piece!"
