    "One of England's national treasures" was how Nelson Riddle described Don Lusher. When Don phoned me to ask if I would do a couple of arrangements of well known tunes for him to play at a charity concert I came up with these sea shanties; not too difficult but an opportunity for you to try to emulate the incomparable Mr Lusher's stylish playing.
