Three Guitars : Richard Shearing

Selly Oak and Five Bells Sounded for three guitars by Richard Shearing

Two pieces for guitar trio or 3 part guitar ensemble by Richard Shearing that will suit players of around grade 3 to 4 standard looking for something original and rhythmically interesting to play.

Selly Oak is in a minor key and is reminiscent of renaissance lute pieces. Its themes get passed around and there is plenty to keep everyone interested. Five Bells Sounded is in 5/4 time and contains funky cross rhythms in a pop-style harmony. It also makes a perfect companion piece for any ensemble who is also learning Lalo Schifrin’s Mission: Impossible theme.

6 page score and separate parts for each piece (each 2 pages).
