Im looking for backing music, orchestra if possible, for "I'll walk beside you " in key of E. for download or CD. My friend has been asked to sing at his nephews wedding, he is 80 years old and a tenor, singing in many amateur dramatics over the years. He has a beautiful voice, please help. Thank you.

You'd be very lucky if you find exactly what you want. Failing that, you can search for a MIDI file and edit it for your purpose, e.g. remove the solo part, transpose it to E major and change the sound to your pleasure. You need a MIDI editor (aka "sequencer") for that, which is available for free (ask Bill D for a recommendation). Your friend can play the resulting MIDI file simply from a laptop computer with good external loudspeakers plugged in.

Hi, Rachael. This closest I could find was the lines below. Do you know a guitarist (or similar) who would be willing to play along? I hope this is the song you have in mind, the song from a 1936 movie.

Let me write out the scales:

A B- C# D E F# G# A
E F# G# A B C# D# E

To do the song in E:
change D's to A's
change F#m to C#m
change A's to E's
change E to B

Grishka, please see if I'm doing this right.


I'll Walk Beside You
Edward Lockton / Alan Murray

Chorus
A                               D       A
I'll walk beside you through the world today
                                  E
While dreams and songs and flowers bless your way
    F#m            D                  A
I'll look into your eyes and hold your hand
                                 E      A
I'll walk beside you through the golden land.

Chorus

I'll walk beside you through the world tonight
Beneath the starry skies ablaze with light
Within your soul love's tender words I'll hide
I'll walk beside you through the eventide.

Chorus

I'll walk beside you through the passing years
Through days of clouds and sunshine, joy and tears
And when the great call comes the sunset gleams
I'll walk beside you to the land of dreams.

If you have access to Spotify then you could use this - I'll Walk Beside You in Eb - it's in Eb but what's a semitone when you are struggling?

It wouldn't be hard to move it up a semitone

It's also on myspace - https://myspace.com/ameritzkaraokeband/music/song/i-ll-walk-beside-you-40313034-89396640

And iTunes etc

leeneia, if Rachael asks for guitar chords, we'll see. At the moment I think a MIDI file comes closest to her wishes. If she finds one that only needs transposing (and possibly muting the solo part), she need not edit it at all, but can use software like "VanBasco's karaoke player" or "VocisMagis" to do it on the fly - easy to find, free, and very easy to use.

BTW: it is also possible to transpose sound files (e.g. MP3), using an audio editor such as "Audacity" - free as well, but not that easy to use.

Ah, but I couldn't find a MIDI file. I don't even know how the song goes.

Meanwhile, where's Rachael?

I remember this from about 60 years ago, sung by Josef Locke.

My favourite version is from Aled Jones but I can't find that on Youtube.
Here's another boy soprano singing beautifully but it's very high - I hope your God son can handle it.
