Derek Hasted writes 'You might not know this piece - it was the theme to the UK Television Series “Howard’s Way” which was broadcast between 1985 and 1990. It was composed as an instrumental with an incessant beat and a disco-like “break” in the middle.

The piece was re-worked as the much more laid-back song “Always There” by Marti Webb; the song rose high into the Top Twenty. It also opened her album of the same name. But the song version lost much of the drive of the original.

As this quartet arrangement is for playing, not singing, it makes sense to put all the drive back in!

If you visit YouTube you will find some recordings of the original theme and these should point you in the right direction to make this piece blossom into a big wall of sound...

It's for an intermediate quartet or large ensemble. Guitar 4 is tuned 6=D and is the most straightforward line. Guitar 3 is all arpeggios, mainly in first position. Guitars 1 and 2 take the tune and countermelodies.

It's a foot-tapping piece that audiences will love!

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!'
