This arrangement comes in the following format, all provided in this one download: *A score with notes and TAB *A score with notes only (to facilitate page turns at the request of teachers) *Parts in notes and TAB *Parts with notes only The melody set here is traditionally used for a setting of the beautiful Robert 'Rabbie' Burns poem 'Ye Banks and Braes'. The actual melody is much older and its origin unknown. The arrangement here is intended for an ensemble of guitars of mixed levels of experience. The verses and chorus are set in both G major, A major and then G major again. Groups can shorten or lengthen a performance if desired, according to experience. Arrangement details are as follows: Guitar 1 - has the main melody and also plays in harmony with Guitar 2. Higher-position playing is required later in the arrangement, if the the full version is performed. Guitar 2 - often harmonises, and plays in canon with Guitar 1. There is some high-position playing required in the full version. Guitar 3 - is intended for beginners and is an optional part. It consists of dotted half notes (minims) throughout. Guitar 4 - has chords throughout. I have provided chord symbols for those familiar with this system. The harmonies given in the notes and TAB are designed to facilitate left-hand chord changes.
