Come On Eileen- for teachers

I’ve just spent the past four hours using sibelius, various TABs and three different versions of the song Come on Eileen to create a simple arrangement for a group of teachers who want a chance to perform together. It’s a hodge-podge of instruments (French Horn, Trombone – tbc, Tenor Sax, Bass, Guitar, Cajon/ Drum, and me singing lead with maybe a couple other voices) but it’s all in the name of fun.

Here’s a pdf of my arrangement (haven’t finished the vocal line or drums yet and really it’s only two lines of harmony instead of four) and I’ve also included an mp3 with a click track of what it should sound like. I’m not sure what the rules are on sharing stuff like this, but here it is anyway.

And here’s the version sung by Save Ferris…
