Score Sample

From Seventh Heaven

This piece, the climax of which is shown here, wanders around the neck and around the keys, but with an all-pervading melody which is high up the guitar so that the sound is rich, from top D to bottom F# at the same time, as we see at Rehearsal Mark H.

Earlier, the melody is the same, but a slower-moving accompaniment makes the counting a little more fraught.

Not for the faint-hearted, but the joy of seeing an audience unable to tap their feet to it is very special!
