Smoke on the water (Deep Purple)


Smoke on the water Sheet music is arranged for String quartet, you can choose to buy score, parts or both score and parts together.

“Smoke on the Water” was first released on Deep Purple’s 1972 album Machine Head. “Smoke on the Water” is known for and recognizable by its central theme, a four-note blues scale melody in G Dorian mode, harmonised in parallel fourths. Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. The album Machine Head was due to be recorded at a casino in Montreux, using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio, but a fire during a Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention gig, caused by a man firing a flare gun into the ceiling, burned down the casino. This incident famously inspired the song “Smoke on the Water”.
