You Are The Reason - the glorious Calum Scott song - makes a lovely guitar duet.
There are two versions in this one edition - one which is "tune and accompaniment" and would make a perfect piece for a Student/Teacher duet or for an intermediate and early intermediate pairing. The other swaps roles at the verse boundary so that both parts are intermediate.
The opening of the original has a wonderful reverberant piano sound, playing repeated notes. I've changed the key of the piece so that the guitar uses a stopped B on the 3rd string and an open B on the 2nd string to give a beautiful overlap on the repeated notes.
Just as the original changes the arpeggio patterns in the second verse, so the guitar again mimics the piano.
My arrangement is "intermediate" in complexity - with the guitar parts supplied in notation and as "score + tab".
Perfect for concerts!
- I've also produced You Are The Reason for flute & guitar
- and You Are The Reason for Bb clarinet & guitar
