I recently aquired this score from another thread on here

http://www.geocities.com/crystal_150025/Will_Grace-Carter-KuczoraV2.pdf

It's the theme music to the tv show Will and Grace.
I've started learning it, but have begun to doubt whether it is entirely accurate. Listening to the real theme music leaves me doubting the score in places.

What I was wondering is whether there is hopefully anybody out there who's at at a high enough level where they could learn this just by looking over it a few times, and then possibly record themselves playing it? so I can here what the score I have actually sounds like when played properly.
Or if you can't record it, could you just tell me if you think it's right, or what needs changing?

a link to the theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnKVbQtio-k

I don't really have anything to offer you in return for this I'm afraid, apart from a massive amount of respect. I'd really love to be able to play this.


Many thanks.

Adam.

The "Will and Grace" theme changed a few times over the course of the episode, so you might be more familiar with one of the other seasons. I think this version is from season 2 or 3.

The score is pretty close to the link you posted. There is another video on youtube of this song, and it's slightly different from both the score and your link. But either one should give you enough of an idea of what it should sound like.

It is almost the same. The score you posted is
100% recognizable as the theme. Probably the guy who wrote and/or played it for the show was doing some things slightly improvised and the score is just an approximation in certain areas of something that might be more confusing if notated exactly as played.
