Guitar Notes: Could Someone Check If My English Sentences Are Expressed Correctly?

Hi, guys. This is my second video playing Tristram. I’ve improved the quality of the video and also a few parts of the song. Once again, I didn’t make any tab. I hope you enjoy this! And thanks a lot for the feedback on the previous video! Cheers from Brazil! Marcelo


“One of my favourite pastimes of late is to surf YouTube in a bid to chance upon fantastically arranged and played pieces of movie music. There is a countless number of such arranged pieces out there, but it’s only an extremely small portion of them that truly mesmerize me and manage to find their way into one of my playlists.

I always find that the arranged pieces too heavily built on the original melodies do not appeal to me. On the other hand, I tend to much prefer such pieces that are boldly arranged from the original tunes but at the same time moderately stick to the original as well.

On a different note, I believe that the greatest appeal of arranged music is that an original piece can be played on a number of different musical instruments. There was this, one original piano piece, that I always thought much better suited for a guitar played version. I was totally beside myself with excitement when I finally came across a marvellous guitar arrangement of it on YouTube.”

I’ve composed these sentences in practise for improving my English. Thank you very much for any advice or correction.

    Try this:

    I feel that arranged pieces which are too heavily built upon their original melodies do not appeal to me. I much prefer pieces that are boldly arranged from the original tunes, yet at the same time retain the basic structure of the original.
