While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison arranged for harp by Sylvia Woods sheet music

For lever or pedal harp.

George Harrison’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps was first released on the Beatles’ 1968 White Album. Sylvia Woods has created three 2-page solo harp arrangements of this song, all included in one piece of sheet music.

A. The arrangement for lever harps tuned to the key of C or 1 flat starts in the key of A minor (no sharps or flats) and modulates to the key of A major (3 sharps). Seven levers are fixed before the music starts, including a very low E#. There are only 4 lever changes within the music, and they are all C or C# changes. The lowest note in this arrangement is D, almost 2 octaves below middle C. The highest note is a G, 25 strings higher. If you have a 26-string harp with a C as the bottom note, you can play the entire piece an octave higher than written.

B. The arrangement for lever harps tuned to 2 or 3 flats starts in the key of G minor (2 flats) and modulates to the key of G major (1 sharp). Seven levers are fixed before the music starts, including a very low D#. There are only 4 lever changes within the music, and they are all B or B-flat changes. The lowest note in this arrangement is C, 2 octaves below middle C. The highest note is an F, 25 strings higher. If you have a 26-string harp with a C as the bottom note, you can play the entire piece an octave higher than written.

C. The arrangement for pedal harps starts in the key of A minor (no sharps or flats) and modulates to the key of A major (3 sharps). There are 12 pedal changes.

The arrangements are all for advanced beginner to intermediate harp players. Lyrics, fingerings, and chord symbols are included. A total of 6 pages of music: 2 for each version.
