Tabbed By: Nick Medovich
Composed By: Ludwig van Beethoven

Tuning(Bass): Standard
Tuning(Guitar): Standard (Can be played in drop D, raise all notes up a step)


A very fun song to learn, I'm mixing the bass and guitar together for this so
it doesn't get all confusing and out of time when you play it together.

**I recommend very strongly that you do NOT use a pick for this song.

In a tuplet, three eith notes add up to make the value of 1 quarter note.
So, 4 sets of tuplets = 4 quarter notes, and 1 measure.

Time: 4/4
