Home > Solo instrument > The Lone Ar-ranger! (Accordion Solo)

A while ago I was contacted by accordion teacher and performer, Patricia Bartell, of Spokane, Washington USA. Patricia asked me if I would make arrangements of some of my more popular pieces for Accordion Orchestra. This I did, and I was most grateful for all her help in getting to write for the medium, and the understand basically how accordions work, and what they’re best capable of.
Patricia herself worked on a solo arrangement of The Lone Ar-ranger! and together we refined this until the present version was arrived at. Patricia (see picture) played this as part of her programme at the recent 2007 Coupe Mondiale where she was a prize-winner. Many people asked her about the origins of the work, so we decided to publish it on SibeliusMusic.
Following a number of requests worldwide, I have now uploaded a special non-playing score, which lists, and identifies all the tune fragments used in
The Lone Ar-ranger!

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.
