Canon on Tongo for four guitars by Dan Jones

Canon on Tongo is a canon for four guitars at ten-bar intervals. At bar 61, guitar one returns to the beginning of the piece followed by the three others before a joint coda at bar 101. The da capo at bar 61 corresponds with the golden section of the piece.

The fingering is chosen to allow players to respect the full duration of the lines (where possible). The resonance created is also very important.

A film of Canon on Tongo can be seen at my Youtube channel: Dan Jones.

Tongo is a call-and-response melody from the Polynesian Islands.

Please declare Canon on Tongo in your PRS return in the event of any performances or recordings.
