Derek Hasted writes "This wonderfully upbeat piece of music makes a great concert piece or encore. It contains all the material from one of the recordings of this piece, including the intro and the instrumental "break" in the middle of the piece.

My arrangement is at the Intermediate level. The accompaniment comprises a ragtime swinging bass which makes the piece motor along. The tune is handed from player to player, switching at each phrase boundary, and appears in three different octaves during the piece, while still remaining on the playable part of the guitar neck.

There are no repeats in this piece, and that allows changes to the texture in the successive verses.

I’ve performed this piece in concert and it’s always been a great crowd-pleaser.

Please note I have also published a version which suits a student/teacher duo or a duo of mixed abilities which is a little easier to play.

I hope you enjoy playing this piece!"
