by Steve Howe, arr. Rick Dior
Instrumentation: Marimba—low A
Fans of the progressive rock band Yes will no doubt jump at this arrangement of Steve Howe’s guitar solo, Mood for a Day, from their album Fragile. Marimbists have been playing guitar music for years, and this clever, flamenco-style arrangement is a shining example of why that trend exists. Intended to be played molto espressivo, the work’s improvisatory nature offers performers plenty of opportunity to add in their own flair.
