With Love – Original Guitar Composition by John H. Clarke

With Love – Original Guitar Composition by John H. Clarke

This was probably the hardest song I have ever trans-cribed. It took hours and hours. Mostly because it was originally recorded and composed completely in free time.

I had to make a lot of decisions in order to put it on paper as accurately as possible. As I generally do with most of my music publications I did not include left or right hand fingerings, or expression marks such as legatos and such. I do this because it is extremely tedious work, but more importantly because I don’t want people to play carbon copies of my music. I believe music should be interpreted and imbued with the style of the artist who plays it.  Here is a sample of the sheet music.

I tried to be as accurate as possible with the notation and the tabs but some notes may have been omitted and altered from the original youtube video. This had to be done in order to “square” the music in 4/4 time on the printed staff.

Leave questions about this song below and I will do my best to get back to you.

  1. Searching for music to use for work with my Spanish horses I discovered you on youtube … and I have to say: you got a new fan! your music makes my skin crawl! Please tell me how I can get some of your CDs (maybe even trough your web, sorry, I´m so overwhelmed, I just did´t look) and whether it would be ok for you if I use some of your pieces to show my horses. Thanks , Dori

  2. Mr.John, greetings!
    u know i used to learn classical guitar some time back because my dad inspired me to..but after his death that inspiration was also lost. after watching u play i feel inspired again.. thank you..

  3. I love to with love, it’s great, I have no credit card will send a letter to pay the tabs with love, but I have doubts about is what I have to send money and in terms of dollar or peso or dollar serious Mexican currency and that mail can get through faster and safer, whether sent by courier or DHL, or that I recommended.

    Thank you very much and thank you for your attention.

    1. I listen to all kinds of stuff including music of Asia. Maybe some of that influence comes out in my playing. I think my most Asian sounding song is probably Mosaic For Shadows because i actually use an Asian pentatonic scale there.

  6. Certainly this is the most impressive piece of music I’ve ever heard. I don’t know anyone else who can play like you. You’re a genius. really, you are. I thank you very much for your music, it’s relly helpful in times of depression… I’m so unbelievable happy that i stumbled about your music!

    But John, why did you locked “with love” at Youtube? It is your best song and it is impossible to hear it. 🙁
    I’m really, really frustrated about that and hope that it will be better.

    Greetings from Germany

    1. Thanks you very much for your compliments. I am sorry that the video is not viewable in Germany. Is that still the case? Hopefully not, I opted out of youtube partner program which means no more advertisements on my videos. Maybe that is why youtube was blocking it.
