Yangguan Pass Song (阳关三叠
or "Three Variations of the Parting of the Friends at the
Yangguan Pass"). This is a
famous Chinese piece of music which I transcribed for solo guitar and plucked string
orchestra. Originally the music was written for guqin (zither). My version is modern,
but tries to maintain the Chinese pentatonic style. An electronic rendering of the sound is
provided below (unfortunately Musescore does not have a mandolin tremolo sound).
If you play this piece, I'd love to hear about it!
