Guitar Ensemble : Abreu arranged by Steve Marsh

Tico-Tico by Zequinha de Abreu arr. for guitar ensemble Steve Marsh

Tico-Tico is the most famous piece written by Brazilian musician and composer Zequinha de Abreu.

This arrangement for four guitars by Steve Marsh includes a variety of strumming patterns and guitar percussion, and the interaction between parts and use of melody in octaves make this 2 minute long piece very enjoyable to perform. We think it suits guitar ensemble so well it could almost have been conceived as one!

Tico-Tico can be played as a quartet with one player per part or expanded into a larger ensemble.
