    Default “So Long & Thanks For All The Fish”

    Hello All,
    While watching “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy” last night I realized that playing the title song to the movie would be a hoot. Problem: Not sure where to begin looking for the sheet music, or the tab for the song.
    Has anyone seen this anywhere? Or, is anyone interested in transcribing it to notation or Tab?

    Please advise.
    Love and Kisses,
    Zaphod

    Or do you mean "Journey of the Sorcerer" ? (by the Eagles)
    My brother and I play that as a duet. Lots of fun!

    For the original BBC radio and TV adaptation, they used the album version of "Journey of the Sorcerer" (from the "One Of These Nights" album by the Eagles, which predates Hitchhiker by a few years) as the title music. They re-recorded the tune for the movie.

    I had a go at the tune on mandolin and mandocello last year. Not entirely happy with the results (the parts aren't in sync and it's a bit too slow), but I posted my recording and the score for my arrangement here:
