Celtic Music Collections

Arrangements by Deborah Greenblatt

String Solos and Duets

The arrangements in the following “Tunes for Two” collections are presented in score form, with the melody on the top stave and the harmony on the staff beneath it. This makes it easy for a solo instrumentalist to be able to play the tunes without a harmony player. Guitar chords are included for back-up musicians.
