"If" (Bread) for clarinet & guitar

"If" (by Bread) - clarinet & guitar duet

Bread's well-known piece has a cleverly written guitar part. The right-hand finger pattern is essentially fixed throughout the piece; the left hand builds arpeggios from a mix of stopped and open strings.

Not all arrangements in the market-place capture this neat musical device, but it makes the piece much easier to play! My score comes with an additional score & tab part that shows where to find the arpeggios on the guitar neck.
The clarinet version contains the original guitar part, but played Capo 1, making the clarinet part accessible to more players... The clarinet part is supplied in two different versions - one mainly in the chalumeau register, and one mainly in the clarion register.
