Octopus's Garden

In an Octopus's Garden - Flute & Guitar

This edition contains an intermediate arrangement for flute & guitar of the wonderfully cheeky piece "In An Octopus's Garden", written by Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) and performed by The Beatles.

My arrangement has a ragtime - almost bluegrass - feel to the accompaniment on the guitar, which is based around familiar first-position chord shapes and played with a swinging thumb. There are no repeats in the score, enabling the music to change texture here and there to add to the performance, which is full-length and contains all the material of one of the performances no on YouTube.
