Guitar magazine first published my arrangement of ’Scarborough Fair’ but I have since added an intro and outro to it. Simon and Garfunkel had a great hit with this song and it continues to be very popular with listeners and guitar players. I have included the chords so that you can also accompany a singer or other instrument that takes the melody part. Use the outro of this arrangement as a basis for the R.H. fingerstyle accompaniment pattern. Also weave in and out of picking melody and bass patterns found in the guitar solo to add interest to the accompaniment . Full lyrics are also included

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.
