Guitar, (guitar duet) - Early Intermediate - Digital Download
By Buddy Holly. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Score, Set of Parts. 10 pages. Published by Derek Hasted (H0.433267-SC001282516).

Item Number: H0.433267-SC001282516

Made famous by Buddy Holly (and later, on UK Television, as the theme to the Heartbeat program, a gentle police drama set in the 1950s and starring Nick Berry), this is a simple duet where the two parts swap between tune and accompaniment, adding visual interest for the audience as well as making sure the parts are absolutely equal!

The catchy tune, underpinned by a heartbeat-like bass line and the instantly recognisable Buddy Holly guitar part, is easy to play and set in a friendly key.

Ideal for school concerts or as an easy item in an an adult concert.
