SAY YOU LOVE ME (Fleetwood Mac) - FOUR GUITARS/LARGE ENSEMBLE
For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.
Derek Hasted writes "This is a real crowd-pleaser that will suit any informal concert.
My arrangement of 'Say You Love Me' is faithful to the Fleetwood Mac original in both the key and the number of sections that it contains. The piece closes with a final chord instead of a long fade out, but it's a big piece with a big sound and it runs for nearly four minutes at the recommended tempo.
There are two bass parts in this edition - one in treble clef and one in bass clef...
The arrangement works well with 4 guitars, but a larger ensemble will find it easy to get much more drive and power! In a large ensemble, the syncopated rhythms need to be tight and accurate if they are to provide a compelling rhythmic support to the tune.
It’s worth mentioning that the name Fleetwood Mac derives from the group’s founder, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie (Mac), their bass player. Why tell you that? Because the Guitar 4 part is a close representation to the original bass line played by John McVie, and what a fantastic bass line it is! The two bass parts (treble clef and bass clef) are identical and between them, they suit guitar, contrabass guitar, electric bass or double bass. For a fuller sound in a large ensemble, one can place a guitar or two alongside a bass instrument.
The standard across the parts varies from intermediate to advanced intermediate, so it's great for an ensemble of mixed abilities.
I hope you enjoy this piece!"
