Grande Sonata Pathetique Op 13 - Adagio cantabile - Ludwig van Beethoven
Piano Sonata No 8 in Cm, 2nd movement

Ever since I learned to play Beethoven's "Pathetique" sonata (op.13) 
on the piano, I have wanted to arrange it for the guitar. 
I found an arrangement by a Mr. David Atkinson which I thought to be 
rather good. Upon closer examination, I found a few parts to be either 
unplayable, or voiced improperly. It is quite difficult to condense an 
intermediate piano piece into something even quasi-playable on the 
guitar, so I give Mr. Atkinson a lot of credit for taking on this task. 
All that I have done here is edit David Atkinson's original arrangement. 
Most of the A-section has not been touched, but I seriously over-hauled 
the two contrasting B and C-sections. Enjoy!

******************************************************************************** ******************************************************************************** From: kaum0@central.susx.ac.uk (David Atkinson) Sonate Pathetique by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part 2/3 - Adagio cantabile/ transposed and tabulated by David Atkinson, October 1994. Dedicated to Debbie Fothergill, Bournemouth, UK. Well here it is... I've always wanted to play this on the guitar. It is a familiar piano piece that, I think, has the right style to be a good guitar transposition. I was forced to transpose the whole piece up one semitone due to various factors such as 'not enough bloody notes on the fingerboard', 'physical impossibilities with the left wrist' and 'the key of A is designed for the guitar anyway' ;-> I feel I ought to tell you that this has taken one and a half full days from my life. It wasn't just a question of copying from a book but it required translating traditional piano score to feasible guitar positions whilst simultaneaously taking the semitone disparity into consideration. No mean feat I might add, especially considering that after 3 years guitar playing I still don't know the notes on the upper fingerboard. :-( I have tried to make it as akin to the original as possible but nevertheless I was forced to make certain ommisions which I have attempted to disguise the best I could. Email me if you think a part sounds dodgy and I'll look into it. Lastly, does anyone have a guitar version to 'Moonlight Sonata'??? If so, post it!!
