This is a download pack of sheet music, lyrics and a midi file which will help you make folk band arrangements of FIVE traditional folk songs.

I've made example recordings of the sort of thing you can do with the arrangements, which are also included in the download.

There's also a "karaoke" version of each song - just the backing without the vocal, for singers to use in the absence of a band.


For each of the five songs you will receive the following:


* Vocal harmony part
* Newly composed simple instrumental intro / riff, with a melody and harmony part
* Scored piano accompaniment
* Chords
* Lyrics
* Instrumental and bass part accompaniments to played alongside vocal line
* Instrumental "show-off" parts for more advanced players to use as solos over both the riff and verse sections


* Demo recording as heard above
* Backing track - the demo recording without the vocals, for singers to use if they have no musicians to play with


* MIDI file
* Example form scheme


You'll receive one pdf file for each song that has all the different parts, as follows:

* Full Score
* Lead (riff melody, vocal melody, chord symbols)
* Piano + Lead (piano part plus the Lead score on small staves)
* Piano on its own
* Vocals (melody and harmony together)
* Instrument 1
* Instrument 2
* Instrumental Solos
* Bass
* Instruments 1+2, Solos and Bass all on one page (for ease of arrangement in smaller groups)

I also include a lyric sheet for each song, and my own arrangement's form scheme as an example - but you can arrange it how ever you like!

These packs are also available as single song downloads: choose your favourite at instantfolkband.bandcamp.com

Bandcamp is primarily a platform for selling recorded music, but allows the inclusion of "extras", so I sell my sheet music this way: the sheet music is an extra file (a pdf) that comes included in the package, and you also get the audio recordings.

How the Download Process Works

Once you've paid through the Bandcamp checkout, the download arrives immediately via a link in your email, which takes you to a webpage from which you download a .zip file containing recordings and digital sheet music.

You'll need to select the audio format, because the sheet music package also contains audio -- but you will automatically get your pdf files too, so you can pick whichever audio format you like and it won't affect your sheet music files.

You won't be able to view the sheet music files in your browser or within the Bandcamp app -- the zip file needs to be downloaded and opened in order to see and print them.

It's usually a straightforward process, but feel free to contact me if you run into any trouble! There is more information on downloads at www.georgianettleton.com/download-faq.php

If you only want the PDF files and the above download process sounds too complex, you can get a pdf-only version which uses a simpler download system at: payhip.com/b/fg5h
