Ainsty Suite
Six Original Compositions For Easy Guitar Trio

The Ainsty was an ancient kingdom on the Plain of York in England.


This suite of 6 short pieces has been written for the beginner ensemble in mind
- typically for players with between 1 month and 1 years experience.
Since most beginners are uneasy at the sight of all those ledger lines on bass notes,
I have endeavoured to make these parts simple so that they can be played almost
straight away, having learned just 3 or 4 notes. Generally, the standard of the
parts in these pieces is about equal, with the exception of Appleton Greens where
the tune is certainly harder than the other two to parts; but then, no three
players are ever of exactly the same standard.
1. Stutton Stomp. Lots of easy open strings help to get started. The second guitars
should be aware of their imitation on the rst system; and the rst guitars copy
likewise on the second system. The diminuendo and rallentando should be dramatic
at the end of the piece.
2. Bishopthorpe March. A good strong, steady opening. The second part of the piece
in the relative minor should be much quieter and more reective. The last 3 bass
notes should not be played at Fine - leave the C before on for a full whole note.
3. Boating on the Wharfe. Try to achieve a good contrast between the gently owing
opening section of the piece and the more dramatic second section.
4. Tadcaster Dance. Aim for a quick exciting tempo, do all the repeats and beware
the last section. This is easy enough to play but does require some ensemble practice.
Most groups with whom I have worked on this have usually broken into giggles and
chaos before nally getting it together!
5. Copmanthorpe Air. A much more peaceful and owing piece. Try to shape the
melody into its (unusual) 3 and 5 bar phrases.
6. Appleton Greens. Play this in swing tempo as suggested in the tempo marking.
The rst guitar part looks hard because of all the tied notes, but, once understood,
is easy enough to play. Have fun!
