Fur Elise by Ludwig van Beethoven
~~~~~~~~~
Arranged for classical guitar by David Atkinson, November '94.

I realise that this piece has already been tabbed and posted to
the nevada archive by Paul Zimmerman but his version uses the 
higher frets which I feel is tough for an uncut classical guitar.

	This piece works surprisingly well on the classical guitar.  
I began tabbing it a month ago but gave up. However, due to a spate
of Usenet interest in the piece I decided to finish it. I've
done my best but as you will notice there is a major
problematic part - the descending chromatic scale
        Artificial that immediately follows the ascending A minor
       harmonics work arpeggios.  The main problem is that I ran
       in the same way as out of notes!  The classical guitar fret
       normal ones except board is too short.  Therefore I made
         that you use the left the decision to add some artificial
         hand as the bridge. The harmonics.  Only a few were really
        index finger of the right necessary but I decided to use
            hand 'touches' the string them for the complete scale
          halfway along the string which so they wouldn't sound too
        is 12 frets up the board.  On one much out of context and
         occasion for a high E, I used a 1/4 also to fit in to the
       harmonic (4 nodes instead of 3).  These return to the main
      are diffucult to find at first because they melody.   Those
       must be held and plucked over the sound hole. with  24 frets
    With practise you'll soon learn to find them with will not have
  considerable ease. If you can suggest an alternative to resort to
  in this particular section I'm open to suggestions so them   :-)

* A = artificial harmonic ...

Yep, just to be a real sadist I decided to place an 
artificial harmonic here.  Pluck the string with your 
ring finger whilst touching the string about 1 cm beyond 
the 19th fret with your index finger.
If you find it tough, wait till you scroll a couple of
pages down ;->

* this should be picked just to the right of the sound hole
(for right handers that is) and the high E should sound.
The exact position will vary depending on your guitar.
This can also be done leaving the left hand on the A (5th fret)
It is important to try and get the harmonics as loud and
as clear a possible.   
                            from here on it is not strictly
                         | necessary to use harmonics.
                         | instead you can go to the 11th
                         | fret high E string and continue
                         | the scale down from there.
