This is a delightful adaptation of Robert Schumann’s piano piece “The Happy Farmer”.
Published in 1848, it was part of a collection called “Album for the Young” (Op.
68) written for his three daughters.
In this arrangement, the Bass features and is supported melodically by the lead guitar,
harmonically with the rhythm guitar and rhythmically by the optional drum kit. The
arrangement allows room for as many performers, at differing levels to be engaged
and to enjoy themselves.
Optional TAB parts are available for those guitarist who have trouble reading standard
