Sheep may safely graze

Post by davekear » Mon Jun 26, 2017 7:46 pm

Anyone know where I can get a rendition of Sheep may safely graze (Bach), that isn't Parkening's version? I love that transcription, and I do play that one, but it's such a hassle. Got to tune your A to a G, E to a C, cross fret bar etc. Just looking for a little bit simpler version. Love that tune.

Yes, Per-Olov Kindgren pulled off quite a feat by taking this piece, which is notoriously difficult to arrange well on the guitar, and made an arrangement that's full, rich, and reasonably playable:

There's a link below the video to his site where you can purchase his arrangement, along with lots of other goodies:-)

Pete Smyster has done an even easier arrangement that is available for purchase:

This one is very nice as well, but I don't see anything suggesting that it's available for purchase:

Damn, that guy is good! Who is he? :lol:
PM me for suggestions on how to get at this arrangement.

I believe that Charles did his own arrangement, using minamihuhu's as a starting point.

Thanks, some good choices here. Maybe I won't have to jump through Parkening's hoops every time I need to play this tune. Actually his version is great, but you really have to stay on top of it. (Go through all those brain and left hand contortions).

The one Parkening plays, which was arranged by Rick Foster, is simply impossible for me. It's a hand-crippling, tennis elbow inducing demon.

I had it down pretty well at one time, but if you don't stay on top of it, it vanishes. The one that got me, from the same book, was "Prelude # 6". Gave me tendonitis. I've never fully recovered. :)

Well that's a coincidence, because attempting pieces that were out of my range gave me crippling tendonitis that forced me to stop playing for nearly two decades! Even now I can't practice enough to get respectably good. One of these days I'll get a digital piano and give my hands a break:-)
