Joe’s Boogie is just a simple arrangement of a blues in G for a mixed ability group of young guitar players. Joe and I use it for large groups in wider opportunities teaching. The simplest part has only open strings G and D, the most difficult has the melody, it uses the first position notes on treble strings. There is a simple rhythm part on three string chords of G7, C and D7 and a third guitar which uses G on string 3, C and D on string 2. There is also a fairly simple walking bass line and a drum part. This type of boogie in G is more or less traditional amongst guitarists and therefore this arrangement is free!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

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.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
