Ben - flute & guitar

Ben (Michael Jackson) - flute & guitar duet

If there was one piece of music that showed the true extent of Michael Jackson’s musical prowess, it would surely be "Ben", sung faultlessly and with great maturity at such a tender age.

My arrangement for flute and guitar is in the same key as the original - F Major - a key which makes most guitarists go weak at the knees because of the need for endless tiring barrés coupled with a generally woolly sound. For my arrangement, I have tuned the guitar’s bottom string down to D and placed a capo on the 3rd fret, moving the guitar part into 2 sharps and giving the resultant key of F a resonant, open sound.

The combination of flute and guitar makes a wonderfully haunting and moving sound that an audience will most certainly enjoy.
