  1. Hi Mr. Colin,

    I heard you playing star wars theme on Wanamaker organ on youtube. You played it very virtuoso. Very fine.

    I want to play star wars too on the organ, but yet i can’t find any sheet for organ. Can you pleas tell me, where you got the sheets for star wars?

    Many regards from Germany

  3. Hi Colin!

    As with the others, it seems we all want your fantastic Star Wars transcription. Please tell us if there is anyway we can get a hold of it! As an organ student I can assure you my fingers are aching to play it.
