Derek Hasted writes "This is one of two arrangements I’ve made of “Busy Doing Nothing” during the Coronavirus Lockdown early in 2020.

Everyone I speak to seems to find time slipping through their fingers and not much gets done. Everyone is busy doing nothing...

The original featured the velvet voice of Bing Crosby, so this is the perfect Croonavirus song!

This arrangement is specifically for those with less experience, perhaps an adult group starting out, or perhaps players in a school group. The arrangement stays in first position.

My other arrangement, also for sale on SheetMusicPlus, is for three guitars as well, but is suited to players who have been playing guitar a little bit longer.

I hope you enjoy this snapshot of where the world found itself in the spring of 2020!"

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.
