Moonlight Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabulated from the (much easier to play) piano score by David Atkinson
in October 1994.
V2.0 (11/94)

I have inlcuded left hand fingering underneath the tab.  I think the
system I used is self-explanitary.  The numbers 1 to 4 indicate the
fingers (1=index,2=middle,3=ring,4=little(pinkie)).  I have left out
fingering where a section is repeated or on parts where fingering is
blatantly obvious.  If anyone needs an explanation, feel free to email
me.

I transposed this to the key of A minor which seemed logical to me at the
time but I have recently been informed that Tarrega used D minor.
Tough!  I experimented with the B string tuned to Bb but, although some
parts were easier, most was better with normal tuning.  Anyone have any
other suggestions?

I might just try a D minor version if I find the time and motivation.
Watch this space!

Please email comments, corrections, suggestions and the rest to David

p = pull-off, h = hammer-on, s = slide

for a whole bar where possible.

The roman numerals above the tab indicate either full barres or half
barres.  The ...s indicate how long the barre lasts.

Adagio Sostenuto.
