Early-intermediate for big and small harps. The song was written by Simon & Garfunkel in 1964, but it's become a meme in recent years, so it’s still very relevant today! Christy-Lyn’s intermediate arrangement is reminiscent of the finger-picking guitar in the original version of the song, with broken chords and some harmonies in the left hand and a right hand melody that's been adapted to sound best on the harp. If you learn this piece from the Video Course, you’ll get essential practice tips on how to make the piece flow and sound musical, much faster than learning on your own!
Difficulty Level and Skills Required: Early-intermediate. This piece has a simple melody in the right hand, with a left hand accompaniment that is a step up in complexity and variation from late-beginner pieces. There are parts of the piece where the two hands play the same notes straight after each other, which can be a challenge for placing without buzzing. There is quite a lot of syncopation – a rhythmic challenge! The left hand jumps around a fair bit, and the right hand has to place some tricky 4 finger chords.
Type of Harp: Big and small harps, including 22 string (C to C) and bigger.
Range: Lowest note is C an octave below middle C, highest note is B almost 2 octaves above middle C.
Levers/Pedals: It is in the key of G major, with no lever changes. Harps without levers can tune their F strings to F sharps.
What's Included: PDF download of 4 pages. Fingering and bracketing are included.
