bridge over troubled water – BY vince peterson
Hand Percussion, Secular, Slow Music, Pandemica
Vince Peterson's arrangement of this Simon & Garfunkel classic is modeled after Aretha Franklin's adaptation performed at her live concert at Fillmore West in San Francisco. The recording of that performance is widely available. The arranger suggests the choir be accompanied by a solo Djembe drum or similar to provide a strong sense of backbeat throughout this piece. Alternatively, a seasoned beatboxer can be used to provide the backbeat. Feel free to hear the recording for the illustration of drum use throughout this arrangement. Enjoy!
