Welcome, you have arrived at the Linus and Lucy party!!!

As was posted in Intermediate-Early Advanced ABF Piano Groups ... we will be using the "Linus and Lucy, by Vince Guaraldi (Advanced Version in A-Flat)" version. HL00352295 printed above the bar code on the sheet music version.

dvdiva posted the following links for online scores.

That's funny Monster! I bought the cd on the internet in Canada a month ago but had delivery problems, had my credit card Co refund my payment, re-ordered elsewhere, and FINALLY it arrived this morning and I'm listening to it for the 3rd time right now!!

I got the score online, (simple short version, not sure how many there are around). Don't remember where I got it but I could mail it to you if you want!

Yippee! We're starting!

The digital score is sold online, you can buy it immediately and print a copy. Just search for "linus and lucy" at any of the ff. digital sheet stores:

www.sheetmusicdirect.com --> $3.95
www.sheetmusicdigital.com --> $4.25
www.musicnotes.com --> $4.65

There are two versions of the advanced A-flat version though, one that's 6 pages and one that's 8 pages. I'm not sure which one we'll be studying? Or what the difference is? Perhaps it's just a matter of layout, or maybe the one with longer pages printed out repeating passages instead of just using the repeat mark?

hey there,
by coincidence i've jst downloaded 'Cast Your Fates to the Wind' by Guaraldi (his album 'Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus' is awesome) -- except i've had to buy a 'new age' version by George Winston (I think that's the name) because the Guaraldi versions are simplified and are in the wrong key. Not nearly as good.
has anyone learned to play this?

I'm in... I think I already have the score; at least I got hold of it over a year ago, found it too hard and put it away for a while. I think it's the right (A-flat) version, but I need to dig it out of my looming pile of to-be-started sheet music. If not I'll order it from sheetmusicplus tomorrow.

I have the version from the book, A Charlie Brown Christmas. It is in Aflat and is 4 pages with most of it repeated. It appears to be either an exact transcription of the Guaraldi recording or VERY similar.

Oh my gosh, I forgot about this group! Ok, I'm trying to find the music too, count me in.

And DK, it's not fun we're talking about, it's insanity. My piano teacher is going to think I've gone round the bend, bringing in new music (all of it over 5 pages) every week!

I have a 6-page version in A-flat. It's in a compilation edited by Tom Roed called Advanced Piano Solos Complete vol. 1, but the piece itself just says "by Vince Guaraldi" and has a 1965 copyright by Felfar Music. So I don't know if it's the "original" or not. There is one repeat that starts on page 2, line 3, and goes through almost all of page 3, so maybe that is the difference between the 6- and 8-page versions.

It looks a little scary to me, I have to say, especially the very first notation which shows a metronome setting of 138.

Monica, that's the one I have too! It's a transcription by Tom Roed, and it's in the same key, but he adds his own flair to it, extra riffs and jazzy runs. It looks more complicated than the original 8-page one by Guaraldi.

I also have the full 8-page version and the 4-page one that TX-Dennis mentioned. The 8-page version has two intervals: the first with a bossa-nova feel and the second with a swing feel. The 4-page version has only the swing interval. But the rest of the measures are exactly the same!

I was so in love with this piece many years ago that I ordered every piano version I could find, even the simplified C-major version (and that's the only one I can play!). They weren't any fancy sheet music sites yet then where we could preview before buying, unlike now, unfortunately! \:\)

dk, that's the same as the one I have from the book. The book is just printed a bit smaller making for 4 pages rather than 5. If everyone decides to work on a different version will this still work? Should we all get the same version or are different versions okay?

[Grows pale at the phrases "extra riffs and jazzy runs" and "more complicated than the original," and scampers right off to buy a different version.]

Thanks, dvdiva, for clearing that up. Once I located it last night, I took a few minutes to dabble with the right hand, and I was playing stuff I sure didn't remember from the recording! That must be those extra riffs and runs. I definitely do NOT want to learn that one.

Just picked up my copy... the same as dk21208's Linus and Lucy...HL00352295 in A flat the HL00352295 is above the bar code on the back of the score.[/b]

Relax Monica/dvdiva.. lets get some color back in Monica's complexion .. it looks a lot easier than what Monica/dvdiva are looking at. (I hope )

Okay, I just ordered that version. And looking at the sample page, it DOES look quite a bit more do-able than the Roed transcription. Phew! Sheetmusicplus says I won't get it for 4-8 days, though. \:\(

Started last night, worked on the first two pages (measures 1-14)…luv the bass part. Fingering seems very do-able. Touched on measures 16-21 and that will take some practice to get my fingers to work, just need to keep the speed down and work on technique. I think I need to get a hold of a recording. If I find one, I’ll post a link.

Anyone else??
