Matilda Goes Walkabout! (Flute & Guitar)

Recently I reviewed a top flute and guitar duo featuring Australian-born flautist, Judith Hall and guitarist, Craig Ogden. They had heard my original Matilda Goes Walkabout! and suggested I write a version for them.
I enlisted the help of local classical guitarist, Alison Smith, to make sure what I had produced from the piano original would fit comfortably on the guitar, and when I’d done this, I set about sending it to Judy and Craig.
Because the guitar is somewhat limited, when compared to the piano, some of the tempi had to be slower and, combined with the need to make this a good ’encore’ piece, on Judy’s suggestion, I decided then to shorten the piece from the original. This seemed to work a treat, and especially transposed down a semitone into D, and with the guitar’s 6th string similarly de-tuned.

Hopefully it will soon feature in their future recitals!

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.
