St. Elsewhere Theme for Solo Guitar

YouTube video of an excellent fingerstyle guitar rendition of Dave Grusin's theme from St. Elsewhere.

I recently set up a Google Alert to report on mentions of "St. Elsewhere", which mostly gets you pages using "elsewhere" and the abbreviation of "street". It turned up this brilliant performance of Dave Grusin's theme music for St. Elsewhere arranged for solo guitar.

He had to trim down the original synth arrangement to make it playable for guitar, and he made all the right choices. I play guitar myself, and I am very impressed by his ingenuity and chops. Bravo, sir!
