Tros Y Garreg (Crossing the Stone) is an arrangement for solo guitar of the popular traditional Welsh melody and was inspired by Miguel Llobet's famous arrangements of Catalan folk tunes. The full range of the guitar is used and the melodies are expressed in various registers,'cross string'combinations and natural harmonics to fully exploit the tonal possibilities of the guitar. There are some tricky left hand stretches and care should be taken to balance the melody with the accompaniment. From the 'Hiraeth' sleevenotes: Tros y Garreg tells the story of a warrior returning home after battle. Crossing the Stone of home he imagines all of the memories the old stone carries from centuries of war and love. In this arrangement I have tried to capture the conflicting moods this warrior must have felt. The happiness of returning home safely contrasted with his melancholy as many friends must have been slain; the optimism for the future and the horrors of the past. Available for you to download and print for yourself as many times as you like (but please don’t make it freely available over the internet I have to make a living out of this!) (4 Pages) I don’t want the cost of my music to be too much for anyone to afford so the + sign means YOU choose the price. A typical price might be £3 but if you feel the music is worth more and you can afford it then please feel free to UP the price! Don’t forget it takes many hours to compose or arrange a piece of music and many more hours to ‘engrave’ the music so it looks great. Enjoy!
