This is a simplistic leadsheet arrangement of this well-known classic tune, designed to be of particular use to those who are getting to grips with improvisation and want something fairly easy chord-wise. Comes with full parts in Bb, Eb, C treble and C bass. Also comes with piano/guitar and bass accompaniment parts.

This arrangement also has potential for more complex treatment with more experienced performers. I’ve designed it so that it can be played by any number of instruments and would be a fun and popular piece to play at gigs.

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, 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 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.
