Score Sample

From Cloudscape

A single melody is first passed between the two players on parts 1 and 2. Later, Guitar 2 introduces a new melody which is also developed. Finally, in the climax of the piece, the two tunes intertwine, sharing similar but interlocking rhythms and harmonies.

Underneath this almost duet-like weaving, Guitar 3 provides an under-the-fingers solid foundation of sustained and moving notes.
