Derek Hasted writes "Both my adult ensemble groups have played this in concert and it’s a lot of fun! It's known to UK audiences as the theme music to the TV program "Match Of The Day".

This version includes the uplifting key-change in the middle of the piece and if the upper three parts play outside of first position, then it’s a simple two-fret shift and no change to the left hand fingering at all!

The X-headed notes are “golpé” strokes - but on a Classical Guitar with no scratch-protection to the front, it’s best to tap the side-panel of the bridge with the side of the thumb - it gives a great drum sound and the wood is hard and won’t mark.

The metronome mark ties in with the speed of the original, but if the fast sections are a little too cumbersome for Guitar One, simply drop the pace a little. Since most of the notes are the same length, it works at almost any speed.

I hope you enjoy performing this!"
