Fret

Salford, 17th April 2018

 

There’s plenty of space to rest your fingers

On the neck of your average guitar

Notes are sounded by the position on the strings

Excellent sounds can be achieved if you put them in the right place

 

(! and if you get it wrong the first time – you can always try again – Don’t Fret !)

Crescendo

Crescendo

The noise began softly enough

as the orchestra’s strings began to play

the flutes and the piccalos joined in with the tune

led by an oboe and a bassoon

to the listenener the music was perfectly poised

as those there playing were joined by a bang

and held in the air – silence it hang

it sounded like thunder – there was an almighty crash

as percussion joined in and kettledrums were bashed

and cymbals and gongs were clattered and crashed

the rest played along to the percussionists peak

till the noise of their thunder died down and became meek

whilst the only noise in the room that was sharp

was the solo effort of a lass on the harp.

Symphony

Symphony

Start of the music is simple enough

Years of orchestration begins with the lead musicians

Mostly its percussion – but violins can be heard

Piano chords blend in to the melody as

Harp strings are gently plucked

Oboes bassoons and flutes add character unique to the piece

Notes followed by famous artistes, composed by late but great masters

Yards of notes, combining to produce a most magnificent piece to listen to
