Is This The Way To Amarillo?

30th January 2019

Amarillo (arranged Derek Hasted)

I'm pleased to announce another arrangement - Is This The Way To Amarillo (Greenfield & Sedaka)

 

This is based on the arrangement that Hampshire Guitar Orchestra played - this version is for 5 guitars.

Made famous by Tony Christie (and more recently by UK comedian Peter Kay, both for Phoenix Nights and Comic Relief), this is a punchy piece that works with just 5 guitars, or for a more impressive sound, with a large ensemble. Audiences love to join in with the "Clap Clap" sections throughout the piece, but generally someone will mis-time their claps, which makes the performance even more enjoyable!

 

You can hear a snippet and see some of the score on the SMP website
