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.
