LET’S GO FLY A KITE by Richard & Robert Sherman 

Arranging this song came quite easily for me. I made the decision to only arrange the refrain as I felt that would be most recognizable to most people and once I started the chords and fingerings rapidly revealed themselves. When that happened I knew this would be a very accessible song for lots of players.  Below are 2 short clips to try. The first shows the opening measures of the song. The second shows the delightful upward moving chromatic sequence expressing the feeling of flying. A perfect example of the genius of the two Sherman brothers.
