TAB: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (J.S. Bach)

Arranged by Jeff Johnson from sheet music.

Standard tuning, key of G, 3/4 time.

The melody consists of triplet eighth-notes, nine/measure, except where
marked as duplets (_2_), i.e., 2 notes/beat instead of three.  The
bassline consists of quarter notes, three/measure.

Written inline, without repeats, because each time through a section is
slightly different.  E.g., the first few notes of Verses 2 and 3 differ
>from  those of Verse 1, the last measure of Chorus 3 differs from those
of Choruses 1 and 2, and the last note of Verse 3 (which leads to the
Bridge) differs from the last note of Verse 1.  I thought it would be
too complicated to try to indicate in a single tab of a section what to 
play on each different time through that section.

Crucial fingerings are marked when not obvious, e.g., (3).
