The Jolly Miller
Four arrangements of well-known tunes; this is one of Derek's most popular trio books. Ideal for less experienced players, but teachers can use the books with experienced players too, for warm-ups, tone work and up-the-neck alternative fingerings.
Classical Guitar Magazine writes "Plenty of interest for everyone"
|Players||Three guitars or large ensemble|
|Difficulty||Easy - marginally more complex than Book 1|
From The Jolly Miller
This piece is perhaps the most complex of the eight in the two books, venturing into the 2nd or 3rd position (depending on how you want to finger the top line above - a stretch or a shift), and incorporating all the elements that tax a player - compound time, semiquavers (sixteenth notes) and a flat to top it all off. Oh yes, and a few chromatic chords too!
This piece is a piece full of contrasts. The phrase above has already figured in the piece before we reach bar 25, above, but the harmony is totally different, so that neither the players nor the audience feel that the piece is in any way repetitive.
