Le Petite Moulin (The Little Windmill); by Camille Saint Saens.

Tab & left hand fingering by James Jay

A great piece easy to play. Good for an opening selection.
To learn this, or any piece, play v-e-r-y slowly until you are bored stiff.
Then increase the metronome by 1 notch. OK go for 2 notches but don't
bust ya fingers!

Normal tuning. EADGBE
4/4 time signature.
All notes are played as 16ths.
Numbers in brackets are suggested alternate fingerings; like so [3].
Feel free to use your own fingering.

Repeat measures 1 to 12 & then jump to the second ending at measure 17.
The fermetta at measure 22 means hold the last note for few extra seconds.
I usually play a slight retard at 22 as well. Give it a strong emphasis to
create tension & then relieve it with the last bar.

Watch out now... there's a marksman in the back of the audience with a rifle
& scope trained on the neck of your guitar & following your left hand movement.
As soon as he sees the tip of the thumb stick out above the neck he will pick it 
right off. 

Have fun !
