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.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

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. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

I really am guessing the date of composition here, having searched for it unsuccessfully! If anyone can put me right with references I would be grateful. This score is in larger font for ease of reading, parts are available separately to avoid page turns however!

Tarrega, who as you probably know was considered the father of modern guitar playing, was also a very fine teacher and wrote many instructional pieces some of which are derived from arrangements of earlier ideas. This arpeggio study has similarities to Romanza - also known as Spanish Ballad. It presents an opportunity for apoyando strokes with ring finger to emphasize a melody.

My arrangement emphasizes the apoyando notes in a third part as I firmly believe it should be played with more sustain than modern scores hint at!

I did this arrangement for an electric guitarist who was a non-reader but wanted to play classical guitar, hence the TAB. The tab is blue in my score - I did it on an earlier version of sibelius but can't remember why nor how to change colour back to black - silly me….
