Clair de Lune is one of my "happy pieces". I adore it and struggled to play it on the piano as it should sound. Arranging it for guitar trio was a little bit of a challenge but was something I felt I needed to do. I wanted to make an accurate arrangement as far as I possibly could but in view of the difficult key for guitarists I did transpose from D flat to D. It loses a little mood wise as D flat sounds more mellow but is scary to guitar players on the whole, so if you have perfect pitch try detuning all guitars down one semitone to get the effect Debussy wanted.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
