Flute, Guitar - Intermediate - Digital Download
By Billy Joel, Glee Cast. Arranged by Derek Hasted. Score, Set of Parts. 13 pages. Published by Derek Hasted (H0.729003-SC001290746).

Item Number: H0.729003-SC001290746

Derek Hasted writes "This very playable but satisfying arrangement is a piece that's full of hidden gems...

For an audience it's absolutely full of uplifting key changes - not just one on the last chorus! This arrangement starts in A, but visits the keys of F, C, D and E more than once, and each one seems to lift the mood yet higher. And then there's a gentle fade away to a quiet finish.

It's an easy rhythmic crowd-pleaser that any audience will like and it’s a real toe-tapper.

The guitar has a simple syncopated rhythm that was inspired by the electric bass line of the original and reworked to provide a rhythm “chords and bass” part that is straightforward and reliable to play.

The soundfile alongside this download at Sheet Music Press is a mix of real guitar and synthesised flute. In a real performance the flute part will benefit from rubato and being relaxed with the beat.

I hope you enjoy this piece!"
