Paul Simon / Michael Langer


Quick Overview

from the series "Fingerstyle"

: 1-2 Guitars

The series Fingerstyle: pop, rock, jazz and Latin for Guitar offers original pieces and arrangements for one or two guitars. In standard notation with extensive fingering and accurate stylistic notes, these volumes should inspire pleasure and passion in new music for guitar.
‘Cecilia’, recorded in 1970 on Simon & Garfunkel’s album Bridge over troubled water and released as a single, was a successful follow up to the title song of the album. Originally a 3-chord number in 4/4 with a rock groove, some changes have been made to the time signature, harmony, rhythm and tune in this arrangement. This new version is based on the many and various arrangements which Paul Simon has made over the years to reinvent his greatest hits for his concert tours.
Special feature: The first part of the arrangement can be played as a solo.
