Tchaikovsky's Chanson Triste - originally for piano - makes a lovely reflective concert piece, and gives an intermediate duo a wonderful opportunity to produce lovely chromatic harmonies which are all under the fingers. Set in the original key, the guitar requires a Capo on fret 3, which places the guitar part in Em.
My other arrangements of this haunting piece are...
- A Guitar Trio version of Chanson Triste for intermediate guitars
- A Guitar Quintet version of Chanson Triste for early intermediate guitars
- A Bb Clarinet & Guitar version of Chanson Triste for intermediate players
