Springtime in December

There may be a lot of you who first encountered Stravinksy's Rite of Spring when watching Fantasia.  That's the way it was with me!

While this is wild, raucous music at times, it always makes you look down your nose on those folks who rioted at the first performance, because it was so --- ODD.

Here are two transcriptions, one for piano, one for guitar.  Both will get your eyebrows rising, your fingers twitching, and maybe your shoulders bopping, too!
