about

This is a download pack of sheet music, lyrics and a midi file which will help you make a folk band arrangement of the traditional song "Matty Groves".

I've made an example recording of the sort of thing you can do with it, which is also included in the download.

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

WHAT YOU GET:
-----------------------

PDFs:

* 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

AUDIO:

* 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

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