Blues Rock Originals for Beginning String Orchestra: Tangerine Blue and Strawberry Ice
Roll over, Robert Johnson. The blues has come to a new kind of crossroads. Specially arranged for new students of violin, viola, and cello, "Tangerine Blue" is an ideal introduction to the pentatonic scales and syncopated rhythms of the blues. Rock out with the 16-bar minor blues tune "Strawberry Ice," featuring the driving rhythms and syncopation found in rock classics from the '50s and '60s.
**Please note that the violin III and viola parts contain the same music, but are written in different clefs to allow for flexibility in available instrumentation. These pieces may be performed with either violas or violin III's or any combination of the two.**
Also available is the audio download of each song performed by the Real Vocal String Quartet.
Arranged by Renata Bratt.
