"If" (Bread) for flute & guitar

"If" (by Bread) - flute & 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 pitch of the original suits the flute well - the mix of the guitar's movement and the flute's sustain makes a charming concert piece.
