Product Description

Sunshine of Your Love Arranged by Michael Hopkins. For String Orchestra. Published by Belwin Mills Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 33662, UPC: 038081394312)

It's the grandaddy of all rock "riff" tunes - and everybody gets to play the riff! The rock band Cream's biggest claim to fame from back in 1967 is reborn in a string orchestra format that surprisingly fits the genre quite well. The essence of the tune is captured as realistically as the medium is capable and there are even optional guitar, electric bass and drum set parts and room for an improvisational solo for whomever wants to tackle it to make it more realistic. There are a fair amount of accidentals, but they are repeated over and over, so they will eventually fall under the hands just fine. Rock rhythms don't look good written down, so the first read-through may be ragged, but once your kids catch the groove it'll be "Katie, bar the door!" Your students' parents (and grandparents these days!) will love it!
