Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz 2 From Suite For Variety Orchestra tab

Hello everybody, this is the 2nd waltz from the suite for variety orchestra of Dmitri Shostakovich.
This song has been used by Kubrick, in his movie Eyes Wide Shut, this is maybe where you 
heard this very famous tune.
I was looking for a tab to play this song, and amazingly, I didn't find any on this website,
So I decided to write my own arrangement for guitar.

OK, so this is supposed to be played with your guitar tuned down one whole step (so , 
DGCFAD), in the key of Eb minor,
but it also sounds good when tuned to the standard EADGAE (in the key of F minor).

Some positions are a bit hard to reach, you may want to forgot the bassline at some point.

This is the beggining of this waltz, written for only one guitar.
If you want to play with a friend, one can play the high notes,
while the other one plays the chord corresponding to the bass note in a (bass- high - 
high) fashion.
For example, for the first bar, you can play C, then G-C-Eb on strings 1,2,3 (so, a Cm chord,
which is the same position as a Dm chord on a standard guitar).  This song is in 3/4.

So, here it goes!
