Guitare seule

4 p.


Assuming that the Lady Di in question is our late Lady Di, then this piece has a lot to live up to. One might expect a schmaltzy tragic piece full of angst and emotion but instead you get a swiftly moving lively little piece with a nicely individual touch in its slightly unexpected harmonies.
Although ostensibly in E major, the opening takes four bars to get there starting with a sequence of G minor, D, A, A minor and then finally E, although the substitution sometimes of the expected D# with D natural makes parts of this melody sound distinctly modal. The occasional use of chords with fourths makes one think at certain points of jazz chordings. After this upbeat and jaunty idea comes a new section with sliding minor chords set against a bass line wherein the thumb is asked to play both forwards and backwards similarly to a plectrum, although it falls nicely under the fingers so there is nothing to worry about. A return to the opening idea brings a swift conclusion to this little gem.
This is a warm-hearted three-minute piece, full of unexpected little details and moreover only moderately difficult. This would be ideal as a little filler in a concert and deserves to do well.
