First arranged in 1980, this version updated with guitar tablature for those who find notation a challenge. (Notation score only also available for teachers who prefer their own fingerings). These four songs are originally from the Cecil Sharp folk song collection. The Drowned Lover, Lord Randal, Lady Maisry and Geordie. Guitar 1 explores a few higher positions of the neck, guitar 2 is quite simple although a couple of barre chords are necessary. The arrangement would suit two players of grade 2/3 ability and above.

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.

Static preview

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid.
