Known for its harmonic sophistication and classical-music influence, the Beach Boys' hit love song "God Only Knows" was an instant classic upon its release and has since been named one of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame's "500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll." This complex but catchy song translates beautifully with your two-violin and cello trio in this Cellobat arrangement -- maintaining the lush harmonic layers, intriguing melodic counterpoint, and dynamic intensity of the original, you're sure to capture your audience's heart. Originally commissioned for a wedding ceremony, this will also be perfect for receptions, cocktail parties, proposals, vow renewals, solo & ensemble contests, or any other occasion you want to bring people joy. :) This chart is rated intermediate and will be playable for students and easily sightreadable for professionals -- just keep a lookout for all the accidentals, and a handful of tricky rhythms in the V1 part.

Sarah "Cellobat" Chaffee earned her bachelor's degree in cello performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and is now based in Las Vegas.
