Folk Roots for Mixed Strings

You can access the following files from these web pages

  • PDF files of the parts and scores for printing.
  • Standard Backing tracks - slow, medium and fast

  • Each part and score can be accessed through Sibelius Scorch - without the need for the main Sibelius programme to be installed. With this you can;
  • play the whole score or individual parts and follow the music at the same time
  • speed up and slow down the music
  • transpose and print parts for transposing instruments
  • use the transposed scores as a backing track whilst 'playing by ear' in a new key

All the software required to achieve the above is available free on the web - links are included.
