"Portrait" - Stanley Myers
arr. Goran Sollscher

tablature by Mike Rosulek,  , 29 May 1999

This is a very beautiful piece by Myers, who also wrote the also great
"Cavatina," apparently from the Deer Hunter movie. This version can be
found on the Mad About Guitars CD (439 149-2 GMA, Deutsche Grammophon).
CDNow reported that this CD was the only CD in its database with *any*
version of this song, sadly enough.

If you like Stanley Myers' "Cavatina," try playing this through. It's
even more beautiful than "Cavatina" in my opinion. It's also a bit
mellower and sadder. Too bad it's only 2:33 minutes long!

If anyone would like to hear this piece, I'd probably be willing to
record it and make a realaudio clip for you (my own interpretation so
it's less of a copyright gray-area), so drop me a line.

Roman numerals indicate barre position, dots indicate how long to barre for.
4/4 time signature. Each "|" above the staff indicates a beat.
