Is there a version for one guitar only?

Hey there, I wrote a piece for solo guitar based on this material. I'm going to post it in scores. If anyone tries it please let me know.

Wow I like this version the best. You should definitely put up the guitar performance vid that should sound even better.

Only one of the students can play it. I dedicated it to a kid I’ve watched grow up playing guitar since she was 12. Now she’s entering grad school at Cal Arts this week. Yeah Jasmine!

Supposedly this is in A minor but if you can manage to do a quick fix to end with B (as locrian), it would be even more japanesy. It's a long-standing topic within my circles overseas: B will not give a sense of cadence for western people most of the time, except for flamenco people.

The Sophocles Papas Memorial collection includes a nice short and relatively easy version of Sakura for solo guitar.

I aimed at A resolution, but I know what you mean. I don't think this is Sakura anymore so I gave it a new name. It's derived from the Sakura for the beginner group, but I cut out references to the complete theme. It's more like salty ume. Right now I'm thinking about Satie's piano music a lot. I showed to it friend of mine who is a composer, he sad I should arrange it for cello trio playing it pizz.

:lol: can you manage to handle umeboshi?

It's a great arrangement though. Just that the notes needing to hold don't hold or ties being missing irritate me a little like mosquito bites.

Jasmine hopefully would be able to video it.

I got cræcked finåle 2003 8) Long been paperless.

But anyways I can see it's well made by complementing imaginary ties and sustains.

I'm gonna show you one more thing unfinished- the beginning of a trio = Heian court music meets the Easter Bunny

There is a free version of musescore that's pretty good. I have the paid version 3.0 it's 50 dollars a year. makes it very easy to dare ideas

Any open string notes just decay naturally - as for the rest of the notation, I'll clean it up later. The 3.0 version is slightly different from the 2. what ever I was used to and i recently switched, so in an effort to make things faster to get the idea finished I didn't cross the i's and dot my t's.
