Ebb Tide by Robert Maxwell sheet music arranged by Angi Bemiss
For lever or pedal harp.
The music for the ever-popular song Ebb Tide was composed by pedal harpist Robert Maxwell (1921 - 2012) in 1953, with lyrics by Carl Sigman.
Angi Bemiss has taken a few "liberties" with the melody and chords, making this piece playable on lever harp. Angi's unique sheet music layout gives you 2 versions of the same piece. The 2-page "Key of C" version is on one side of the 11" x 17" sheet, and the 2-page "Key of E-flat" version (in 3 flats) is on the back. Since you get BOTH versions, you'll have a perfect arrangement, no matter which way you tune your lever harp! Both versions down to the C that is 2 octaves below middle C. Chord symbols and lyrics are included, but no fingerings.
There are 6 lever changes required in each version. The C version requires C, G and A levers, and the E-flat version has B, C, and E lever changes.
Please note: there is no cover page on this sheet music. The image shown here was created for this website, but does not appear on the music.
