The Lone Ar-ranger! (Two Violins & Two Cellos)
I've often been asked for standard versions of The Lone Ar-ranger!, and am happy to provide them, when requested.
It's easy to assume that a string ensemble wishing to play the String Quartet version would use the regular combination of Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, and Cello.
However, I was emailed by a string specialist from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia - and where I'd spent a couple of days last year on a European journey that took me through Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and the UK.
Her request was straightforward enough! Do I have a version for 2 Violins + 2 Cellos? - i.e. where the Viola part would be taken by the second cello. The viola is an octave higher than the cello, so this did mean some rearranging, here and there, but this is always something I like to do, so that every version has a couple of subtle differences somewhere in the score.
Of course, there probably aren't going to be many other 2+2 string ensembles out there, but at least Jana now has what she was after!

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:
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.
