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

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

===== = sustain. However, to save me hassle, sustain all the bass notes
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.
